If you use a script-driven application for your Internet site, any information which both you and the site users produce shall be stored inside a database - an accumulation of information, which is arranged in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is done by employing special software known as database management system and one of the most popular ones globally is MySQL. A lot of script applications are created to work with MySQL because it is user-friendly, it functions very well on a web hosting server and it is universal as it can work with widely used web programming languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP) and on a number of web server Operating Systems (UNIX, Linux, Windows). There are thousands of scripts which use MySQL, including very popular ones like Moodle, Joomla and WordPress.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Web Hosting

You'll be able to use script-driven platforms that require a MySQL database with any of the Linux shared web hosting packages which we provide. You can set up a new database via the Hepsia website hosting CP and the total number of databases you can have at one time depends on the package which you choose. We also offer advanced options to control your databases, like a one-click backup and remote accessibility. With the latter option you will be able to use software on your computer to connect to a database on our web hosting servers and manage it. For easy administration from the CP we provide you with the efficient phpMyAdmin tool, which will enable you to change tables or cells and import or export whole databases through a web interface. If you use our 1-click script installer, our system shall create a whole new database and link it to the application you have picked out automatically, so all you'll have to do to get a script-driven website shall be to click on the Install button.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our semi-dedicated packages due to the fact that we have the latest version installed on all servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP, you'll be able to quickly set up or erase a database, change its password, back it up with one click or examine the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you would like to manage the content of a database directly, not via a script, you'll have two options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available in the Control Panel, or using an app set up on your PC since we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you will need to add your IP address through the web hosting account first as an added level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
