If you use a script-driven application for your website, any info that both you and the site users produce will be stored within a database - a collection of information, that's structured in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is done by employing special software known as database management system and one of the most famous ones worldwide is MySQL. A large amount of script applications are created to work with MySQL as it's user-friendly, it works perfectly on a web hosting server and it is universal as it can work with famous web programming languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python) and on a number of server Operating Systems (Windows, Linux, UNIX). There are literally thousands of scripts which use MySQL, including quite popular ones for instance WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Web Hosting

Setting up or editing a MySQL database is going to be very easy with each one of our cloud web hosting. That can be accomplished using our feature-rich Hepsia CP where you can set up or erase a database, create a backup copy with one mouse click or employ the highly efficient phpMyAdmin tool so as to edit cells and tables or import an entire database if you are moving a script-driven Internet site from another hosting provider. You could also enable remote access to any database within your account and decide from what IP addresses the connection shall be established, as a way to ensure the safety of your info. Should you decide to use any of the script platforms which we offer with our script installer, you'll not need to do anything because our system will create a brand new database and link it to the website automatically. If you experience any difficulties to manage your databases, you should check our help articles and training videos or get hold of our technical support.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our semi-dedicated servers given that we have the most current version set up on all servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to swiftly set up or delete a database, change its password, back it up with just a single mouse click or examine the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you'd like to manage the content of a database directly, not via a script, you will have 2 options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available in the CP, or using an app installed on your laptop or computer given that we support remote database access.
