All script apps like forums or online shops keep their information inside a database - a set of cells and tables containing the website data such as items, prices, comments, etc. Every time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified info, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it operates on a number of platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its amazing effectiveness even with large databases. Numerous well-known platforms like WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to store their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting

Our Linux shared hosting will permit you to host MySQL-driven Internet sites without any issue as our cloud platform has the latest management system version set up. You will be able to set up, remove and control your databases easily using our custom Hepsia Control Panel. If you wish to migrate a site from another web hosting provider, you should use the phpMyAdmin tool that you can access through Hepsia, or you can connect remotely once you've allowed this function for your IP address. In the same way you can even change certain cells or tables within any of your databases. Generating a backup is also uncomplicated and takes just a mouse click on the Backup button for a particular database. This feature will enable you to keep a copy of a website on your personal computer or to export the content of a given database, change it on your end using appropriate software, and then import it back.

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 given that we have the newest version set up on all machines - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to swiftly create or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with a single mouse click or check out the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you would like to handle the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you'll have 2 options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available in the Control Panel, or using an application installed on your computer as we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you will have to include your IP address via the hosting account first as an added level of security against unauthorized access to your data.
