When you use a script-driven application for your Internet site, any information that both you and the website users produce will be stored within a database - an accumulation of information, that's arranged in cells and tables for easier reading and writing. The latter is accomplished by employing special software referred to as database management system and one of the most famous ones world-wide is MySQL. A wide range of script applications are built to work with MySQL as it is simple to use, it performs very well on a hosting server and it's universal as it can perform with common web programming languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java) and on various server Operating Systems (Windows, Linux, UNIX). There are huge amounts of scripts that use MySQL, including extremely popular ones like Moodle, Joomla and WordPress.

MySQL 5 Databases in Website Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia CP offered with our Linux website hosting packages will permit you to take care of all your MySQL databases with ease. It takes just a couple of clicks to set up a completely new database and with one more click you may back it up if you want to have a copy before you update your web site, for example. You will be able to change the password, erase a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you could choose the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely in order to ensure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your information. If you would like to view the database content or change any cell or table via the CP, you can use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven applications will also be very easy as our script installer will create a database for the script which you have picked automatically.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our Linux semi-dedicated packages given that we have the most up-to-date version set up on all web servers - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to quickly set up or delete a database, change its password, back it up with a single mouse click or examine the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you'd like to manage the content of a database directly, not through a script, you will have 2 options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available inside the CP, or using an app set up on your computer since we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you'll have to add your IP address through the web hosting account first as an extra level of protection against unauthorized access to your information.
