When you use a script-driven application for your site, any information which both you and the site users create shall be stored inside a database - a collection of info, that's arranged in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is accomplished by employing special software referred to as database management system and one of the most famous ones world-wide is MySQL. A number of script apps are created to work with MySQL because it is simple to use, it performs exceptionally well on a website hosting server and it's also universal as it can perform with well-known web programming languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python) and on several server Operating Systems (UNIX, Linux, Windows). There are huge amounts of scripts that use MySQL, including quite popular ones like WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Website Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel included with our Linux cloud website hosting allows you to control all your MySQL databases with ease. It takes just a few clicks to set up a completely new database and with just one more click you can back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your site, for instance. You will be able to change the password, remove a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you could choose the IP addresses that'll be able to connect to the database remotely to make sure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your info. If you'd like to see the database content or modify any cell or table using the Control Panel, you should use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven applications will also be easy as our script installer will create a database for the script which you have chosen automatically.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our semi-dedicated plans due to the fact that we have the latest version installed on all servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP, you'll be able to quickly create or delete a database, change its password, back it up with a single click or examine the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you want to manage the content of a database directly, not through a script, you shall have 2 options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available inside the Control Panel, or using an application set up on your laptop or computer given 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 extra level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
