All script apps including forums or web stores store their info in a database - a set of cells and tables which contains all the site data including items, prices, comments, and so forth. Each time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed information, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and amongst the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it works on different platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its fantastic effectiveness even with massive databases. A lot of widely used platforms such as Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to store their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Hosting

You will be able to use script-driven platforms which require a MySQL database with each one of the hosting service that we offer. You can easily set up a whole new database from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the total number of databases that you can have simultaneously will depend on the package you choose. We also provide you with advanced options to handle your databases, like a one-click backup and remote access. With the latter option you'll be able to employ software on your personal computer to connect to a database on our hosting servers and manage it. For simple administration from the CP we provide the powerful phpMyAdmin tool, which will allow you to edit tables or cells and import or export entire databases through a web interface. If you take advantage of our 1-click script installer, our system will create a brand new database and link it to the app you have picked automatically, so all you'll 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 each of our Linux semi-dedicated service considering the fact that we have the newest version installed on all machines - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP, you shall be able to easily set up or erase a database, modify its password, back it up with a single click or check out the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you'd like to manage 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's available in the CP, or using an application installed on your laptop or computer considering the fact that we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you will have to add your IP address from the web hosting account first as an added level of protection against unauthorized access to your info.
