MySQL is one of the most widespread database control systems available. A database is a group of cells with data which are organized in tables and the control system is the software which links the information to a script app. For example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc within a database and every time a website visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that should be displayed on a particular page. MySQL is really popular due to its excellent efficiency, convenience and the fact that it can work with many popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic sites which are developed with a script-driven application need some type of database and a lot of the most popular ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Web Hosting

Creating or modifying a MySQL database will be quite simple with each one of our Linux shared web hosting. That can be carried out using our feature-rich Hepsia Control Panel through which you can set up or delete a database, create a backup with a single click or use the powerful phpMyAdmin software tool in order to modify cells and tables or import an entire database if you are moving a script-driven site from another hosting company. You can also enable remote access to any database in your account and select from what IP addresses the connection shall be established, in order to guarantee the security of your info. If you choose to employ any of the script platforms which we offer you with our script installer, you will not have to do anything as our system will create a brand new database and link it to the website automatically. If you face any issues to control your databases, you can examine our help articles and educational videos or get hold of our technical support.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting since we have the latest version set up on all machines - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to easily set up or erase a database, change its password, back it up with one click or examine the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you'd like to manage the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you will have two options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available inside the CP, or using an application installed on your PC given that we support remote database access. For the latter option, you'll have to include your IP address via the web hosting account first as an additional level of safety against unauthorized access to your data.
