All script applications including forums or virtual stores save their information within a database - a collection of cells and tables that contains all the site info such as items, prices, comments, and so on. Every time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, then shows it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used as it can run on several platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a variety of scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its amazing functionality even with large databases. Numerous famous platforms like Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to store their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel offered with our Linux cloud hosting will allow you to control all your MySQL databases with ease. It requires only a few clicks to create a new database and with only one more click you may back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your web site, for example. You will be able to modify the password, delete a database or enable remote access to it just as fast. For the latter option you may opt for the IP addresses that'll be able to connect to the database remotely in order to make sure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your info. If you wish to view the database content or modify any cell or table via the CP, you should use phpMyAdmin, an efficient web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven applications will also be very easy as our script installer will create a database for the script you have picked automatically.

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 services since we have the latest version set up on all servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to swiftly set up or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with one mouse click or check the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you would like to handle the content of a database directly, not through a script, you'll 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. For the abovementioned option, you'll need to include your IP address via the hosting account first as an extra level of security against unauthorized access to your information.
