If you use a script-driven app for your site, any data which both you and the website users generate shall be stored in a database - an accumulation of information, that is arranged in cells and tables for simpler reading and writing. The latter is done by employing special software known as database management system and one of the most popular ones globally is MySQL. A large amount of script applications are designed to work with MySQL because it is easy to use, it functions very well on a web server and it is universal as it can work with popular web programming languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python) and on a number of hosting server Operating Systems (Linux, UNIX, Windows). There are thousands of scripts which use MySQL, including really popular ones for instance WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.

MySQL 5 Databases in Hosting

Setting up or changing a MySQL database is going to be easy with each of our hosting plans. That can be performed via our feature-rich Hepsia CP in which you can create or delete a database, create a backup with a single mouse click or employ the efficient phpMyAdmin tool so as to edit cells and tables or import an entire database if you are moving a script-driven website from another service provider. You could even enable remote access to any database in your account and select from what IP addresses the connection will be established, so as to ensure the protection of your data. If you decide to use any of the script platforms which we provide with our script installer, you will not need to do anything because our system will create a new database and link it to the site automatically. If you encounter any difficulties to control your databases, you can examine our help articles and video tutorials or get hold of our tech support.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our semi-dedicated servers given that we have the latest version set up on all servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to quickly set up or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with just a single mouse click or examine the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you want 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 Control Panel, or using an app installed on your personal computer given that we support remote database access. For the latter option, you will have to add your IP address from the hosting account first as an extra level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
