If you use a script-driven application for your Internet site, any information that both you and the website users create will be stored within a database - a collection of data, that is organized in cells and tables for easier reading and writing. The latter is accomplished through special software referred to as database management system and one of the most popular ones worldwide is MySQL. A number of script applications are created to work with MySQL as it's user-friendly, it performs really well on a web hosting server and it's also universal as it can perform with common web programming languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java) and on a variety of hosting server OS (Linux, UNIX, Windows). There are hundreds of scripts which use MySQL, including really popular ones such as Moodle, Joomla and WordPress.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting

Creating or changing a MySQL database shall be really easy with each one of our Linux shared hosting packages. This can be accomplished via our feature-rich Hepsia CP through which you can create or remove a database, create a backup copy with a single click or employ the powerful phpMyAdmin software tool so as to modify cells and tables or import an entire database if you are moving a script-driven website from another hosting provider. You could also enable remote access to any database inside your account and select from what IP addresses the connection shall be established, so that you can guarantee the safety of your data. If you choose to employ any of the script platforms that we offer you with our script installer, you will not have to do anything because our system will set up a brand new database and link it to the site automatically.

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 given that we have the most current version installed on all machines - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you shall be able to quickly set up or remove a database, modify its password, back it up with a single mouse click or check out the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you'd like to manage the content of a database directly, not via a script, you will have two options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available in the CP, or using an application installed on your personal computer since we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you will need to add your IP address via the hosting account first as an added level of protection against unauthorized access to your information.
