MySQL is among the most popular database administration systems in existence. A database is a set of cells with data which are arranged in tables and the administration system is the software which links the info to a script application. For instance, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so on in a database and every time a site visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which should be displayed on a specific page. MySQL is very popular due to its terrific performance, ease of use and the fact that it can operate with lots of popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic websites which are designed with a script-driven app require some type of database and a number of the most widely used ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Website Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia CP included with our Linux cloud website hosting packages allows you to manage all your MySQL databases effortlessly. It takes just a few clicks to set up a brand new database and with just one more click you could back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your site, for example. You shall be able to change the password, erase a database or allow remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you may opt for the IP addresses that'll be able to connect to the database remotely in order to ensure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your information. If you wish to view the database content or modify any cell or table using the CP, you should use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven apps will also be very easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script you have chosen automatically.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our Linux semi-dedicated packages considering the fact that we have the newest version installed on all servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to quickly create or erase a database, modify its password, back it up with a single mouse 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 by using 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 application installed on your computer given that we support remote database access. For the latter option, you'll need to include your IP address through the hosting account first as an additional level of safety against unauthorized access to your information.
