When you use a script-driven app for your website, any information which both you and the site users generate shall be stored inside a database - a collection of data, that is structured in cells and tables for simplier and 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 globally is MySQL. A wide range of script applications are designed to work with MySQL as it's easy to work with, it works really well on a web server and it is universal as it can function with popular web programming languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java) and on a variety of web server Operating Systems (UNIX, Linux, Windows). There are loads of scripts that use MySQL, including extremely popular ones like WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.
MySQL 5 Databases in Hosting
Starting or editing a MySQL database shall be very simple with any of our hosting. This can be carried out via our feature-rich Hepsia CP through which you can set up or delete a database, create a backup copy with one click or employ the powerful phpMyAdmin instrument in order to edit cells and tables or import an entire database if you are moving a script-driven website from another web hosting provider. You may also enable remote access to any database in your account and decide from what IP addresses the connection shall be established, so as to ensure the protection of your information. If you choose to employ any of the script platforms that we offer you with our script installer, you will not need to do anything simply because our system will create a brand new database and link it to the website automatically. If you face any issues to manage your databases, you can check our help articles and video tutorials or communicate with our technical support.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our semi-dedicated servers since we have the most current version installed on all web servers - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP, you will be able to easily set up or erase a database, modify its password, back it up with just a single click or check the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you would like to manage the content of a database directly, not through a script, you'll have two options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available inside the Control Panel, or using an application set up on your PC as we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you'll have to include your IP address via the web hosting account first as an added level of safety against unauthorized access to your data.
