All script applications such as forums or web stores keep their info in a database - a group of cells and tables that contains all of the website information such as items, prices, comments, etc. Anytime you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required info, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and amongst the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used as it can run on different platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a range of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its amazing performance even with big databases. Numerous widely used platforms such as WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to keep their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Website Hosting

You'll be able to use script-driven platforms that require a MySQL database with each of the website hosting which we offer. You could set up a whole new database through the Hepsia web hosting CP and the total number of databases you can have simultaneously is determined by the package which you pick out. We also provide advanced options to control your databases, including a one-click backup and remote access. With the latter option you'll be able to employ software on your computer to connect to a database on our hosting servers and manage it. For convenient administration via the CP we provide you with the effective phpMyAdmin software tool, which will enable you to modify cells or tables and import or export entire databases via a web interface. If you employ our 1-click script installer, our system will create a brand new database and connect it to the application you have chosen automatically, so all you will have to do to get a script-driven site is to click on the Install button.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our semi-dedicated servers since we have the latest version installed on all web servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to quickly create or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with a single click or examine the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you would like to manage 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 is available in the CP, or using an application installed on your laptop or computer given that we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you will need to include your IP address from the web hosting account first as an added level of safety against unauthorized access to your information.
