All script applications like forums or online shops save their info inside a database - a collection of cells and tables that contains the site data like items, prices, comments, and so forth. Each time you open a certain 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 called a database management system and amongst the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it works on various platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its wonderful performance even with huge databases. Many popular platforms including WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to store their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting

You shall be able to use script-driven platforms that require a MySQL database with each one of the Linux shared hosting packages which we offer you. You can easily set up a whole new database through the Hepsia website hosting CP and the total number of databases that you can have at one time depends on the package which you select. We also provide you with advanced options to control your databases, like a one-click backup and remote access. With the latter option you will be able to employ software on your PC to connect to a database on our hosting servers and manage it. For easy administration through the Control Panel we provide the effective phpMyAdmin tool, which will permit you to edit tables or cells and import or export whole databases via a web interface. If you take advantage of our 1-click script installer, our system will create a whole new database and connect it to the application you have picked automatically, so all you will need to do to get a script-driven Internet site will be to click on the Install button.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages as we have the latest version set up on all servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP, you'll be able to quickly set up or erase a database, modify its password, back it up with a single click or check out the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you'd like to handle the content of a database directly, not via a script, you'll have two options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available in the CP, or using an app installed on your laptop or computer as we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you'll have to add your IP address through the web hosting account first as an additional level of safety against unauthorized access to your info.
