All script applications like forums or e-stores keep their information inside a database - a group of cells and tables that contains the Internet site data such as items, prices, comments, and many others. When 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 called a database management system and among the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used because it runs on various platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its fantastic performance even with massive databases. A lot of widely used platforms such as WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to store their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Web Hosting

You shall be able to use script-driven platforms which require a MySQL database with any of the Linux cloud web hosting service that we offer you. You could set up a new database from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the total number of databases that you can have at the same time is determined by the package that you pick out. We also offer you advanced options to control your databases, like a one-click backup and remote access. With the latter option you'll be able to use software on your computer to connect to a database on our web hosting servers and manage it. For convenient management via the CP we provide you with the highly efficient phpMyAdmin tool, that will enable you to modify cells or tables 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 new database and link it to the application you have picked out automatically, so all you will need to do to get a script-driven website 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 any of our Linux semi-dedicated servers due to the fact that we have the most up-to-date version installed on all servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you'll be able to swiftly set up or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with just a single mouse click or check the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you would like to manage the content of a database directly, not through a script, you will have two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available inside the Control Panel, or using an application installed on your computer as we support remote database access. For the latter option, you'll have to include your IP address through the web hosting account first as an extra level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
