All script applications including forums or e-stores save their info inside a database - a group of cells and tables which contains all of the website data such as items, prices, comments, and so on. Each time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used as it can run on a number of platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a variety of scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its excellent performance even with massive databases. Numerous widely used platforms like Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to store their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Hosting

Setting up or modifying a MySQL database will be easy with each one of our hosting. That can be done through our feature-rich Hepsia CP through which you can set up or erase a database, set up a backup copy with one click or employ the efficient phpMyAdmin software tool in order to modify cells and tables or import a whole database if you are moving a script-driven website from another service provider. You may also enable remote access to any database inside your account and decide from what IP addresses the connection will be established, in order to ensure the safety of your data. If you choose to use any of the script platforms that we offer with our script installer, you won't need to do anything because our system will create a brand new database and link it to the website automatically. If you face any issues to control your databases, you should check our help articles and instructional videos or make contact with our technical support.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our Linux semi-dedicated servers since we have the most current version installed on all servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to swiftly create or remove a database, modify its password, back it up with just a single 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 via a script, you will have two options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available in the CP, or using an app set up on your personal computer given that we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you will need to include your IP address via the hosting account first as an extra level of safety against unauthorized access to your information.
