When you use a script-driven application for your site, any information which both you and the site users generate will be stored within a database - an accumulation of data, that's arranged in cells and tables for simpler reading and writing. The latter is done through special software referred to as database management system and one of the most famous ones around the globe is MySQL. A lot of script apps are designed to work with MySQL as it's easy to work with, it works really well on a website hosting server and it's also universal as it can function with popular web programming languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java) and on a variety of hosting server OS (UNIX, Linux, Windows). There are loads of scripts which use MySQL, including very popular ones for example WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our cloud hosting service will allow you to manage all your MySQL databases easily. It takes only a few mouse clicks to set up a brand new database and with one more click you can back it up if you'd like to have a copy before you update your site, for example. You'll be able to change the password, remove a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you'll be able to pick the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely to make sure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your info. If you wish to view the database content or change any cell or table using the Control Panel, you can use phpMyAdmin, an efficient web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven apps will also be super easy as our script installer will create a database for the script which you have picked out automatically.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our Linux semi-dedicated servers considering the fact that we have the most up-to-date version set up on all servers - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to quickly create or delete a database, change its password, back it up with just a single mouse click or check out the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you want to manage the content of a database directly, not via a script, you will have 2 options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available inside the Control Panel, or using an application installed on your computer given that we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you'll need to add your IP address from the web hosting account first as an added level of safety against unauthorized access to your data.
