When you use a script-driven application for your website, any data that both you and the site users generate shall be stored within a database - a collection of data, which is arranged in cells and tables for easier reading and writing. The latter is accomplished by using special software called database management system and one of the most widely used ones globally is MySQL. A lot of script applications are built to work with MySQL because it’s easy to use, it functions perfectly on a hosting server and it's universal as it can function with widely used web programming languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java) and on several server Operating Systems (Windows, UNIX, Linux). There are thousands of scripts which use MySQL, including very popular ones like WordPress, Moodle and Joomla.
MySQL 5 Databases in Website Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel included with our website hosting plans will allow you to manage all your MySQL databases with ease. It requires just a few mouse clicks to create a completely new database and with one more click you could back it up if you'd like to have a copy before you update your Internet site, for example. You'll be able to modify the password, remove a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you'll be able to pick the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely to ensure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your info. If you want to view the database content or modify any cell or table using the Control Panel, you may use phpMyAdmin, an effective web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven apps shall also be super easy as our script installer will create a database for the script that you have picked automatically.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plans considering the fact that we have the most current version set up on all servers - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to swiftly set up or erase a database, change its password, back it up with just a single click or check the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you want to manage the content of a database directly, not through a script, you shall have two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available in the Control Panel, or using an application installed on your PC considering the fact that we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you'll need to add your IP address from the hosting account first as an extra level of security against unauthorized access to your info.
