All script applications such as forums or online stores store their information inside a database - a set of cells and tables containing all the Internet site data such as items, prices, comments, etc. Anytime you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary info, then shows it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it can run on a number of platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its wonderful performance even with huge databases. Lots of popular platforms such as WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to keep their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting

Starting or changing a MySQL database will be easy with each of our Linux shared hosting. This can be carried out using our feature-rich Hepsia CP in which you can set up or delete a database, create a backup copy with only one click or use the effective phpMyAdmin instrument so as to modify cells and tables or import an entire database if you are moving a script-driven website from another web hosting provider. You can even enable remote access to any database within your account and choose from what IP addresses the connection shall be established, so as to guarantee the protection of your information. If you opt to use any of the script platforms that we offer you with our script installer, you'll not have to do anything simply because our system will set up a whole new database and link it to the website automatically. If you face any problems to control your databases, you can check our help articles and video tutorials or make contact with our technical support.

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 hosting plans given that we have the latest version set up on all servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to quickly set up or erase a database, change its password, back it up with just a single mouse click or check out the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you want to manage the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you'll have 2 options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available inside the Control Panel, or using an app set up on your PC as we support remote database access. For the latter option, you will need to add your IP address through the web hosting account first as an additional level of security against unauthorized access to your information.
