If you use a script-driven app for your site, any info that both you and the website users create shall be stored in a database - a collection of info, which is organized in cells and tables for 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 globally is MySQL. A lot of script apps are designed to work with MySQL as it's convenient to use, it works very well on a website hosting server and it's universal as it can perform with widely used web programming languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python) and on various server OS (Windows, Linux, UNIX). There are literally thousands of scripts that use MySQL, including popular ones for example Moodle, Joomla and WordPress.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Website Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel offered with our cloud website hosting plans will allow you to manage all your MySQL databases effortlessly. It requires only a few clicks to create a new database and with only one more click you may back it up if you want to have a copy before you update your web site, for example. You will be able to change the password, erase a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you could choose the IP addresses that'll be able to connect to the database remotely to ensure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your info. If you would like to see the database content or edit any cell or table through the CP, you should use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven apps shall also be easy as our script installer will create a database for the script which you have picked out automatically.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our semi-dedicated plans considering the fact that we have the latest version installed on all machines - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP, you will be able to quickly create or remove a database, modify its password, back it up with one click or check out the hourly and daily access stats 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 PC as we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you will need to include your IP address through the web hosting account first as an extra level of safety against unauthorized access to your information.
