All script apps like forums or web shops keep their info in a database - a set of cells and tables containing the website info such as items, prices, comments, and so forth. When you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified info, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it works on a variety of platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its wonderful effectiveness even with large databases. Numerous famous platforms including Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to save their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Website Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia CP offered with our Linux cloud website hosting service will enable you to take care of all your MySQL databases with ease. It requires only a few mouse clicks to set up a new database and with just one more click you may back it up if you want to have a copy before you update your web site, for instance. You'll be able to change the password, remove a database or enable remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you'll be able to opt for the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely to ensure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your info. If you'd like to view the database content or change any cell or table through the CP, you may use phpMyAdmin, an effective web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven applications shall also be easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script that you have chosen automatically.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our Linux semi-dedicated servers since we have the most current version installed on all web servers - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to easily set up or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with a single click or examine the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you want to manage the content of a database directly, not through a script, you'll have two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available inside the CP, or using an app set up on your laptop or computer since we support remote database access. For the latter option, you'll have to include your IP address through the web hosting account first as an extra level of protection against unauthorized access to your info.
