MySQL is one of the most widespread database administration systems available. A database is a collection of cells with information that are structured in tables and the administration system is the piece of software which links the data to a script application. For instance, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so on inside a database and every single time a visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which should be shown on a specific page. MySQL is extremely popular due to its great functionality, ease of use and the fact that it can work with numerous popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic web sites which are built with a script-driven application require some form of database and some of the most widely used ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Web Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia CP offered with our Linux web hosting will permit you to manage all your MySQL databases without difficulty. It requires only a couple of mouse clicks to create a new database and with one more click you may back it up if you want to have a copy before you update your site, for instance. You'll be able to modify the password, delete a database or enable remote access to it just as fast. For the latter option you may choose the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely so as to make sure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your info. If you want to view the database content or modify any cell or table from the Control Panel, you may use phpMyAdmin, an efficient web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven applications will also be super easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script you have picked automatically.

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 given that we have the most current version installed on all web servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to quickly create or erase a database, modify its password, back it up with a single click or examine the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you'd like to handle the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you will 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'll need to add your IP address from the hosting account first as an extra level of safety against unauthorized access to your data.
