When you use a script-driven application for your Internet site, any info that both you and the site users create will be stored inside a database - a collection of info, which is arranged in cells and tables for simpler reading and writing. The latter is done by employing special software known as database management system and one of the most popular ones world-wide is MySQL. A wide range of script apps are built to work with MySQL because it’s simple to use, it functions perfectly on a web server and it's also universal as it can perform with popular web programming languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java) and on several hosting server Operating Systems (UNIX, Linux, Windows). There are thousands of scripts which use MySQL, including extremely popular ones for instance WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting

Setting up or editing a MySQL database shall be easy with each of our shared hosting. That can be performed using our feature-rich Hepsia Control Panel in which you can set up or remove a database, set up a backup with one mouse click or take advantage of the effective phpMyAdmin tool in order to change cells and tables or import an entire database if you are moving a script-driven Internet site from another hosting provider. You could even enable remote access to any database in your account and choose from what IP addresses the connection will be established, in order to guarantee the safety of your data. Should you decide to use any of the script platforms which we provide with our script installer, you will not need to do anything because our system will create a new database and link it to the Internet site automatically. If you encounter any difficulties to manage your databases, you can examine our help articles and video tutorials or get in touch with our tech support.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our semi-dedicated servers given that we have the newest version installed on all machines - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to quickly create or erase a database, modify its password, back it up with just a single click or examine the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you want to manage the content of a database directly, not through a script, you'll have 2 options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available in the Control Panel, or using an app set up on your computer given that we support remote database access. For the latter option, you'll need to add your IP address via the hosting account first as an extra level of protection against unauthorized access to your info.
