If you use a script-driven application for your site, any data which both you and the site users produce shall be stored in a database - a collection of information, that's structured in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is accomplished by using special software referred to as database management system and one of the most well-known ones globally is MySQL. A number of script applications are created to work with MySQL since it’s simple to use, it works exceptionally well on a website hosting server and it is universal as it can work with widely used web programming languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python) and on a variety of server Operating Systems (Linux, UNIX, Windows). There are thousands of scripts that use MySQL, including popular ones for example WordPress, Moodle and Joomla.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia CP offered with our cloud service allows you to take care of all your MySQL databases easily. It requires only a few mouse clicks to set up a completely new database and with only one more click you can back it up if you want to have a copy before you update your site, for instance. You'll be able to change the password, remove a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you could opt for the IP addresses that'll be able to connect to the database remotely in order to make sure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your info. If you want to see the database content or change any cell or table via the Control Panel, you may use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven apps shall also be quite simple as our script installer will set up a database for the script you have selected automatically.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our Linux semi-dedicated servers 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 website hosting CP, you will be able to quickly set up or remove a database, modify its password, back it up with one click or check out the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you would like to handle the content of a database directly, not via a script, you will have two 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 as we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you'll have to include your IP address through the hosting account first as an extra level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
