MySQL is among the most commonly used database management systems out there. A database is a collection of cells with info which are organized in tables and the management system is the piece of software that links the info to a script application. For instance, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so on in a database and every single time a visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that should be displayed on a certain page. MySQL is really popular due to its excellent efficiency, convenience and the fact that it can work with lots of popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth. All dynamic sites which are developed with a script-driven app require some type of database and some of the most widely used ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Website Hosting

Our Linux website hosting packages will permit you to host MySQL-driven sites without problems as our cloud platform has the latest management system version installed. You'll be able to set up, erase and control your databases easily using our custom Hepsia CP. If you'd like to migrate an Internet site from another web hosting provider, you can use the phpMyAdmin tool which you can access from Hepsia, or you can connect remotely after you've enabled this function for your IP address. In the same way you could also edit certain cells or tables inside any of your databases. Generating a backup is equally uncomplicated and takes only a click on the Backup button for a particular database. This function will permit you to keep a copy of a website on your computer or to export the content of a given database, modify it on your end using appropriate software, and then import it back.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages due to the fact that we have the latest version installed on all servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to quickly set up or remove a database, change its password, back it up with one click or check the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you would like to manage the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you'll have two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available inside the CP, or using an app set up on your computer considering the fact that we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you will need to include your IP address from the hosting account first as an additional level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
