All script apps including forums or online stores save their information within a database - a set of cells and tables containing the Internet site data including items, prices, comments, and many others. Every time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified info, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and amongst the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used as it works on several platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its fantastic effectiveness even with huge databases. Many popular platforms including Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to keep their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting

Creating or modifying a MySQL database will be easy with any of our Linux cloud hosting. That can be carried out using our feature-rich Hepsia CP through which you can create or delete a database, set up a backup copy with one mouse click or use the highly effective phpMyAdmin software tool in order to edit cells and tables or import a whole database if you are moving a script-driven website from another web hosting provider. You can even enable remote access to any database within your account and decide from what IP addresses the connection will be established, in order to guarantee the protection of your info. If you decide to take advantage of any of the script platforms we offer with our script installer, you will not have to do anything simply because our system will set up a whole new database and link it to the Internet site automatically. If you experience any issues to control your databases, you should check our help articles and training videos or get in touch with our tech support.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our semi-dedicated servers given that we have the most current version installed on all servers - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to quickly set up or remove a database, modify its password, back it up with just a single mouse click or examine the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you would like to handle the content of a database directly, not through a script, you shall have two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available inside the CP, or using an application set up on your PC as we support remote database access. For the latter option, you will need to include your IP address from the web hosting account first as an additional level of security against unauthorized access to your info.
