All script applications including forums or virtual shops save their info inside a database - a collection of cells and tables that contains all the website data including items, prices, comments, and so on. Whenever you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary info, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it operates on several platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its amazing efficiency even with large databases. Numerous famous platforms including Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to keep their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia CP that comes with our Linux cloud packages allows you to take care of all your MySQL databases with ease. It takes only a few clicks to set up a completely new database and with only one more click you may back it up if you want to have a copy before you update your Internet site, for example. You will be able to change the password, erase a database or enable remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you may pick the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely to ensure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your data. If you wish to see the database content or edit any cell or table through the Control Panel, you may use phpMyAdmin, an effective web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven applications will also be very easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script you have picked out automatically.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages considering the fact that we have the most current version set up on all web servers - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP, you'll be able to quickly create or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with one mouse click or check the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you would like to handle the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you shall have two options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available inside the Control Panel, or using an app set up on your personal computer as we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you'll need to include your IP address via the hosting account first as an additional level of safety against unauthorized access to your information.
