All script apps including forums or e-stores store their information in a database - a set of cells and tables which contains all the website data including items, prices, comments, and so on. Anytime you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified data, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it works on a number of platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its amazing efficiency even with big databases. Many well-known platforms including WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to keep their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting

You shall be able to use script-driven platforms that require a MySQL database with each one of the cloud hosting plans that we offer. You can easily set up a new database through the Hepsia hosting CP and the amount of databases which you can have at one time depends on the package you opt for. We also provide advanced options to control 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 management through the Control Panel we provide you with the highly efficient phpMyAdmin tool, which will allow you to modify tables or cells and import or export whole databases through a web interface. If you take advantage of our 1-click script installer, our system shall create a completely new database and connect it to the application you have selected automatically, so all you will have to do to get a script-driven Internet site is to click on the Install button.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our semi-dedicated hosting plans due to the fact that we have the most current version set up on all servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP, you shall be able to easily set up or erase a database, change its password, back it up with just a single click or check the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you want to manage the content of a database directly, not through a script, you'll have two options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available in the Control Panel, or using an application installed on your computer since we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you will need to include your IP address from the web hosting account first as an extra level of safety against unauthorized access to your information.
