When you use a script-driven app for your site, any info which both you and the site users generate shall be stored inside a database - an accumulation of information, that is arranged in cells and tables for simpler reading and writing. The latter is accomplished by using special software referred to as database management system and one of the most popular ones around the globe is MySQL. A number of script apps are built to work with MySQL since it is user-friendly, it works very well on a web server and it's universal as it can function with popular web programming languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP) and on several server OS (Windows, Linux, UNIX). There are loads of scripts that use MySQL, including very popular ones such as WordPress, Moodle and Joomla.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting

Setting up or changing a MySQL database shall be quite simple with each one of our cloud hosting. This can be carried out through our feature-rich Hepsia Control Panel where you can set up or delete a database, create a backup copy with only one click or take advantage of the highly effective phpMyAdmin software instrument to modify cells and tables or import an entire database if you are moving a script-driven website from another web hosting provider. You can also enable remote access to any database inside your account and decide from what IP addresses the connection will be established, so as to ensure the safety of your data. If you choose to employ any of the script platforms which we offer with our script installer, you'll not have to do anything simply because our system will set up a brand new database and link it to the site automatically. If you experience any issues to control your databases, you should check our help articles and instructional videos or make contact with our tech support team.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our semi-dedicated servers considering the fact that we have the most up-to-date version installed on all machines - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to swiftly set up or remove a database, modify its password, back it up with a single click or check the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you want to handle the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you will have 2 options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available inside the Control Panel, or using an app set up on your personal computer as we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you'll have to add your IP address via the web hosting account first as an extra level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
