If you use a script-driven app for your website, any info which both you and the website users create shall be stored in a database - an accumulation of data, that is organized in cells and tables for easier reading and writing. The latter is carried out by employing special software referred to as database management system and one of the most popular ones worldwide is MySQL. A wide range of script applications are created to work with MySQL because it is convenient to use, it works exceptionally well on a web hosting server and it's also universal as it can perform with famous web programming languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python) and on a variety of server Operating Systems (Linux, UNIX, Windows). There are loads of scripts that use MySQL, including very popular ones such as WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting
You'll be able to use script-driven platforms which require a MySQL database with any of the Linux cloud hosting that we offer you. You can easily set up a new database via the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the total number of databases that you can have simultaneously will depend on the package which you select. We also provide advanced options to control your databases, including a one-click backup and remote access. With the latter option you shall be able to use software on your computer to connect to a database on our web hosting servers and manage it. For simple administration from the Control Panel we provide the efficient phpMyAdmin software tool, that will allow you to edit cells or tables and import or export entire databases using a web interface. If you employ our 1-click script installer, our system will create a brand new database and link it to the application you have chosen automatically, so all you will need to do to get a script-driven site is to click on the Install button.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our semi-dedicated hosting service due to the fact that we have the newest version installed on all machines - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to easily create or remove a database, change its password, back it up with just a single mouse click or examine the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you want to handle 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, that is available in the CP, or using an application set up on your computer as we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you'll have to add your IP address from the web hosting account first as an extra level of safety against unauthorized access to your data.
