All script applications including forums or web stores store their info in a database - a set of cells and tables that contains all of the website information including items, prices, comments, and many others. Every time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified info, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and amongst the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used as it functions on several platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its excellent effectiveness even with big databases. A lot of well-known platforms like WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to save their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Website Hosting

Our Linux website hosting services will allow you to host MySQL-driven sites without any difficulty as our cloud platform has the latest management system version set up. You will be able to set up, remove and manage your databases with ease using our custom Hepsia Control Panel. If you want to migrate a site from another website hosting provider, you may use the phpMyAdmin tool which you can access from Hepsia, or you can connect remotely right after you've allowed this function for your IP address. In the same way you can even change certain cells or tables inside any of your databases. Generating a backup is also painless and takes only a mouse click on the Backup button for a certain database. This function allows you to keep a copy of a site on your PC or to export the content of a particular database, edit it on your end using some software, and then import it back.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting as we have the newest version set up on all web servers - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to quickly create or remove a database, modify its password, back it up with just a single click or examine the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you'd like to handle the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you shall have two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available inside the CP, or using an application installed on your PC since we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you will have to add your IP address from the hosting account first as an additional level of security against unauthorized access to your information.
