MySQL is one of the most commonly used database administration systems on the market. A database is a group of cells with information that are arranged in tables and the control system is the software which links the info to a script application. As an illustration, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so on within a database and every single time a visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which should be displayed on a particular page. MySQL is extremely popular because of its great functionality, ease of use and the fact that it can function with many popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic web sites which are designed with a script-driven app require some form of database and some of the most popular ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting

You shall be able to use script-driven platforms which require a MySQL database with each of the Linux shared hosting which we provide. You can easily create a completely new database through the Hepsia web hosting CP and the amount of databases you can have at the same time is determined by the package which you pick out. We also offer advanced options to handle your databases, such as a one-click backup and remote accessibility. With the latter option you will be able to employ software on your computer to connect to a database on our servers and manage it. For simple administration via the Control Panel we provide the effective phpMyAdmin software tool, that will allow you to edit tables or cells and import or export whole databases using a web interface. If you take advantage of our 1-click script installer, our system shall create a new database and connect it to the application you have selected automatically, so all you'll have to do to get a script-driven Internet site will be to click on the Install button.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our Linux semi-dedicated plans due to the fact that we have the latest version set up on all machines - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP, you will be able to easily set up or remove a database, change its password, back it up with a single mouse click or check out the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you would like to manage the content of a database directly, not through a script, you will have two options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available in the CP, or using an application set up on your personal computer given that we support remote database access. For the latter option, you will need to include your IP address from the hosting account first as an added level of protection against unauthorized access to your info.
