MySQL is among the most commonly used database administration systems available. A database is a set of cells with information that are organized in tables and the management system is the piece of software that links the information to a script application. As an illustration, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc within a database and each time a website visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which has to be accessible on a certain page. MySQL is very popular due to its excellent efficiency, ease of use and the fact that it can operate with lots of popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic sites which are developed with a script-driven application require some form of database and a number of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
MySQL 5 Databases in Hosting
You shall be able to use script-driven platforms which require a MySQL database with any of the Linux hosting we offer you. You can easily create a whole new database through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the total number of databases which you can have simultaneously is determined by the package that you select. We also offer you advanced options to manage your databases, like a one-click backup and remote access. With the latter option you shall be able to use software on your personal computer to connect to a database on our website hosting servers and manage it. For easy management from the Control Panel we provide the powerful phpMyAdmin software tool, which will allow 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 shall create a new database and link it to the application you have picked automatically, so all you'll have to do to get a script-driven site is to click on the Install button.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages due to the fact that we have the most current version set up on all web servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP, you shall be able to quickly set up or delete a database, change its password, back it up with a single mouse click or examine the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you'd like to handle the content of a database directly, not via a script, you'll 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 computer since we support remote database access. For the latter option, you will have to add your IP address via the web hosting account first as an extra level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
