If you use a script-driven application for your site, any information which both you and the website users generate will 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 carried out through special software referred to as database management system and one of the most famous ones around the globe is MySQL. A large amount of script applications are created to work with MySQL because it’s easy to work with, it performs exceptionally well on a hosting server and it's also universal as it can work with well-known web programming languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python) and on a variety of server OS (Windows, Linux, UNIX). There are hundreds of scripts that use MySQL, including very popular ones such as WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.

MySQL 5 Databases in Hosting

Setting up or changing a MySQL database will be very easy with any of our Linux hosting packages. That can be performed via our feature-rich Hepsia CP in which you can create or remove a database, create a backup copy with a single click or use the highly effective phpMyAdmin software instrument in order to edit cells and tables or import an entire database if you are moving a script-driven Internet site from another web hosting provider. You may also enable remote access to any database within your account and decide from what IP addresses the connection shall be established, as a way to ensure the safety of your info. If you choose to take advantage of any of the script platforms which we provide with our script installer, you will not have to do anything simply because our system will set up a whole new database and link it to the website automatically. If you experience any problems to manage your databases, you can check our help articles and video tutorials or get hold of our tech support team.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages considering the fact that we have the latest version set up on all servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to quickly create or delete 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 would like to handle the content of a database directly, not via a script, you'll have 2 options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available inside the CP, or using an app installed on your computer since we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you'll have to include your IP address from the web hosting account first as an extra level of security against unauthorized access to your info.
