MySQL is among the most popular database management systems available. A database is a collection of cells with data that are structured in tables and the administration system is the software that links the data to a script application. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth inside a database and each time a visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which should be accessible on a certain page. MySQL is very popular due to its superb functionality, ease of use and the fact that it can work with numerous popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic Internet sites that are developed with a script-driven application need some form of database and a lot of the most popular ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Web Hosting

You'll be able to use script-driven platforms which require a MySQL database with any of the web hosting packages we provide. You can create a new database through the Hepsia website hosting CP and the amount of databases you can have at a time will depend on the package that you select. We also provide you with advanced options to manage your databases, such as a one-click backup and remote accessibility. With the latter option you will be able to employ software on your computer to connect to a database on our servers and manage it. For simple administration through the Control Panel we offer the highly effective phpMyAdmin tool, which will permit you to change cells or tables and import or export entire databases via a web interface. If you take advantage of our 1-click script installer, our system will create a new database and link it to the app you have selected automatically, so all you'll have to do to get a script-driven site will be to click on the Install button.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our semi-dedicated hosting packages as we have the latest version set up on all web servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to easily set up or remove a database, modify its password, back it up with one 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 via a script, you'll have 2 options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available in the CP, or using an app set up on your computer since we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you'll need to add your IP address via the web hosting account first as an extra level of safety against unauthorized access to your information.
