MySQL is among the most widespread database control systems in existence. A database is a collection of cells with data which are organized in tables and the administration system is the piece of software which links the information to a script application. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc inside a database and every time a website visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that has to be accessible on a specific page. MySQL is very popular because of its great performance, simplicity and the fact that it can operate with numerous popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic Internet sites that are built with a script-driven app require some kind of database and many of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Web Hosting

Starting or changing a MySQL database shall be very simple with any of our shared web hosting plans. That can be performed through our feature-rich Hepsia Control Panel in which you can set up or erase a database, set up a backup with just one click or employ the highly effective phpMyAdmin instrument to edit cells and tables or import an entire database if you are moving a script-driven site from another hosting company. You can even enable remote access to any database inside your account and decide from what IP addresses the connection will be established, to ensure the protection of your information. Should you decide to use any of the script platforms we provide with our script installer, you will not need to do anything because our system will set up a new database and link it to the Internet site automatically. If you experience any problems to manage your databases, you can examine our help articles and video tutorials or communicate with our technical support.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our semi-dedicated plans as we have the latest version set up on all web servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to quickly set up or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with a single mouse click or examine the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you would like to manage the content of a database directly, not through a script, you shall have two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available inside the CP, or using an app installed on your laptop or computer since we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you will need to add your IP address from the hosting account first as an added level of security against unauthorized access to your data.
