All script apps like forums or e-shops save their info within a database - a collection of cells and tables containing the website info such as items, prices, comments, and so forth. Every time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified data, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used because it can run on a number of platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its fantastic functionality even with huge databases. A lot of well-known platforms such as Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to keep their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Website Hosting

Setting up or editing a MySQL database will be easy with each one of our Linux shared website hosting. This can be done through our feature-rich Hepsia Control Panel where you can set up or erase a database, set up a backup copy with just a single click or use the highly efficient phpMyAdmin instrument in order to edit cells and tables or import an entire database if you are moving a script-driven Internet site from another hosting provider. You can also enable remote access to any database inside your account and choose from what IP addresses the connection shall be established, so as to guarantee the safety of your information. If you decide to employ any of the script platforms that we offer with our script installer, you will not have to do anything because our system will set up a new database and link it to the website automatically. If you face any difficulties to control your databases, you should check our help articles and instructional videos or get in touch with our tech support team.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting as we have the most up-to-date version set up on all servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to quickly create or delete 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 would like to handle the content of a database directly, not via a script, you will have two options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available in the Control Panel, or using an app installed on your laptop or computer considering the fact that we support remote database access. For the latter option, you'll need to add your IP address via the hosting account first as an added level of security against unauthorized access to your information.
