MySQL is among the most widely used database control systems available. A database is a collection of cells with info which are arranged in tables and the administration system is the software that links the information to a script app. For example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc within a database and every single time a site visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that has to be shown on a certain page. MySQL is very popular due to its excellent efficiency, simplicity and the fact that it can operate with numerous popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic web sites that are built with a script-driven application require some type of database and a lot of the most popular ones like Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Web Hosting
Our Linux shared web hosting
allow you to host MySQL-driven Internet sites without any problem as our cloud platform has the latest management system version set up. You shall be able to create, remove and control your databases with ease using our custom-made Hepsia CP. If you wish to migrate an Internet site from another web hosting provider, you should use the phpMyAdmin tool which you can access through Hepsia, or you can connect remotely after you have allowed this function for your IP address. In the same way you could also edit specific cells or tables within any of your databases. Setting up a backup is just as painless and takes just a click on the Backup button for a particular database. This feature allows you to keep a copy of an Internet site on your computer or to export the content of a certain database, change it on your end using some software, and then import it back.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting
as we have the newest version installed on all web servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to swiftly create or remove a database, modify its password, back it up with just a single click or check out the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you'd like to handle the content of a database directly, not through a script, you'll have two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available inside the CP, or using an application set up on your personal computer considering the fact that we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you will have to include your IP address via the hosting account first as an additional level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
