All script applications like forums or virtual stores store their information in a database - a group of cells and tables which contains the Internet site information like items, prices, comments, and many others. Anytime you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it can run on a variety of platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its excellent performance even with large databases. Many popular platforms like WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to save their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting
Our Linux shared hosting will enable you to host MySQL-driven sites without any problem as our cloud platform has the latest management system version set up. You will be able to create, erase and control your databases without difficulty using our custom-made Hepsia CP. If you would like to migrate an Internet site from another website hosting company, you should use the phpMyAdmin tool which you may access via Hepsia, or you can connect remotely right after you have permitted this function for your IP address. In the same way you may also change specific cells or tables inside any of your databases. Creating a backup is also uncomplicated and takes just a mouse click on the Backup button for a particular database. This feature will allow you to keep a copy of an Internet site on your computer or to export the content of a given database, modify it on your end using appropriate software, and then import it back.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our semi-dedicated servers as we have the most up-to-date version installed on all servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP, you shall be able to quickly set up or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with a single mouse click or check out the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you want to manage the content of a database directly, not through a script, you'll have 2 options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available inside the Control Panel, or using an application installed on your personal computer since we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you will have to add your IP address via the hosting account first as an additional level of safety against unauthorized access to your data.
