If you use a script-driven app for your website, any data that both you and the site users generate will be stored within a database - a collection of info, which is organized in cells and tables for easier reading and writing. The latter is done by using special software called database management system and one of the most popular ones world-wide is MySQL. A number of script apps are designed to work with MySQL as it is user-friendly, it performs exceptionally well on a website hosting server and it's universal as it can perform with widely used web programming languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP) and on several server Operating Systems (Linux, UNIX, Windows). There are thousands of scripts that use MySQL, including popular ones for example WordPress, Moodle and Joomla.

MySQL 5 Databases in Website Hosting

You will be able to use script-driven platforms which require a MySQL database with any of the website hosting which we offer. You can easily set up a completely new database through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the total number of databases which you can have at a time will depend on the package that you choose. We also offer advanced options to control your databases, including a one-click backup and remote access. With the latter option you will be able to use software on your PC to connect to a database on our web servers and manage it. For simple administration from the Control Panel we offer the highly effective phpMyAdmin software tool, which will permit you to modify tables or cells and import or export entire databases using a web interface. If you use our 1-click script installer, our system will create a new database and link it to the application you have picked automatically, so all you will have to do to get a script-driven site shall be to click on the Install button.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our semi-dedicated servers due to the fact that we have the newest version set up on all servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP, you will be able to easily create or delete a database, change its password, back it up with just a single mouse click or check out the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you want to handle 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, that is available inside the Control Panel, or using an app set up on your computer given that we support remote database access. For the latter option, you will have to add your IP address through the hosting account first as an extra level of protection against unauthorized access to your information.
