When you use a script-driven application for your Internet site, any data which both you and the site users create will be stored in a database - a collection of info, which is arranged in cells and tables for easier reading and writing. The latter is accomplished by using special software known as database management system and one of the most widely used ones around the globe is MySQL. A large amount of script applications are built to work with MySQL because it’s simple to use, it works very well on a web server and it's also universal as it can work with famous web programming languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java) and on various web server Operating Systems (UNIX, Linux, Windows). There are literally thousands of scripts that use MySQL, including extremely popular ones like WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Web Hosting
You'll be able to use script-driven platforms which require a MySQL database with any of the shared web hosting service that we provide. You can easily create a new database through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the amount of databases you can have at a time will depend on the package which you opt for. We also offer advanced options to manage your databases, such as a one-click backup and remote access. With the latter option you will be able to employ software on your computer to connect to a database on our web servers and manage it. For simple management through the CP we offer the effective phpMyAdmin tool, which will permit you to change cells or tables and import or export entire databases via a web interface. If you take advantage of our 1-click script installer, our system shall create a whole new database and connect it to the app you have selected automatically, so all you will need to do to get a script-driven site will be to click on the Install button.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our Linux semi-dedicated servers as we have the newest version set up on all servers - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you shall be able to swiftly create or erase a database, change its password, back it up with just a single click or check the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you'd like to manage the content of a database directly, not through a script, you'll have 2 options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available inside the CP, or using an application set up on your PC since we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you'll have to add your IP address via the hosting account first as an extra level of protection against unauthorized access to your information.
