When you use a script-driven application for your website, any information which both you and the site users create will be stored in a database - an accumulation of information, that's organized in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is accomplished through special software known as database management system and one of the most widely used ones worldwide is MySQL. A large amount of script apps are designed to work with MySQL as it's user-friendly, it works perfectly on a server and it's universal as it can work with well-known web programming languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP) and on various server OS (Linux, UNIX, Windows). There are huge amounts of scripts that use MySQL, including extremely popular ones for instance WordPress, Moodle and Joomla.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting
Starting or changing a MySQL database is going to be very simple with any of our Linux shared hosting. This can be accomplished through our feature-rich Hepsia Control Panel in which you can create or remove a database, set up a backup with a single mouse click or employ the highly efficient phpMyAdmin tool in order to change cells and tables or import a whole database if you are moving a script-driven website from another web hosting provider. You could even enable remote access to any database in your account and decide from what IP addresses the connection will be established, as a way to guarantee the protection of your info. Should you decide to use any of the script platforms that we offer you with our script installer, you'll not have to do anything because our system will set up a whole new database and link it to the site automatically. If you face any difficulties to manage your databases, you should check our help articles and instructional videos or make contact with our tech support team.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting considering the fact that we have the most up-to-date version set up on all servers - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you will be able to easily create or remove a database, modify its password, back it up with one click or check the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you want to manage the content of a database directly, not via a script, you'll have 2 options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available inside the Control Panel, or using an app installed on your computer since we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you'll have to include your IP address from the web hosting account first as an extra level of security against unauthorized access to your data.
