MySQL is one of the most commonly used database control systems available. A database is a collection of cells with data that are structured in tables and the control system is the piece of software that links the information to a script app. As an illustration, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so forth inside a database and each time a visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which needs to be shown on a specific page. MySQL is really popular because of its superb functionality, convenience and the fact that it can function with a lot of popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic Internet sites which are built with a script-driven application need some kind of database and some of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting

Our Linux shared hosting will permit you to host MySQL-driven Internet sites without any problem as our cloud platform has the latest management system version set up. You shall be able to create, erase and manage your databases easily using our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like to migrate an Internet site from another website hosting provider, you should use the phpMyAdmin tool which you can access through Hepsia, or you can connect remotely once you have allowed this feature for your IP address. In the same way you can also change certain cells or tables in any of your databases. Generating a backup is also simple and takes just a click on the Backup button for a particular database. This feature will enable you to keep a copy of a website on your PC or to export the content of a particular database, edit it on your end using appropriate software, and then import it back.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting as we have the latest version installed on all servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP, you will be able to swiftly create or remove a database, modify its password, back it up with a single mouse click or check the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you want to handle the content of a database directly, not through a script, you will have two options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available inside the CP, or using an application installed on your laptop or computer since we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you'll have to include your IP address via the hosting account first as an additional level of security against unauthorized access to your information.
