MySQL is one of the most widespread database management systems in existence. A database is a group of cells with data that are organized in tables and the management system is the piece of software that links the information to a script app. As an example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc inside a database and every single time a website visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that has to be shown on a certain page. MySQL is extremely popular due to its excellent functionality, simplicity of use and the fact that it can operate with many popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic sites which are built with a script-driven application require some form of database and some of the most widely used ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel included with our cloud hosting allows you to control all your MySQL databases with ease. It takes just a few clicks to set up a completely new database and with just one more click you could back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your Internet site, for example. You shall be able to modify the password, erase a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you can pick the IP addresses that'll be able to connect to the database remotely to make sure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your information. If you wish to view the database content or modify any cell or table through the Control Panel, you can use phpMyAdmin, an effective web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven apps shall also be super easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script that you have picked out automatically.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our semi-dedicated servers as we have the most current version set up on all web servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you shall be able to quickly create or delete a database, change its password, back it up with just a single mouse click or check out the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you would like to manage the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you will have 2 options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available in the Control Panel, or using an application set up on your PC since we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you'll need to include your IP address via the hosting account first as an extra level of security against unauthorized access to your info.
