MySQL is one of the most widespread database administration systems out there. A database is a group of cells with information which are organized in tables and the administration system is the software that links the information to a script app. For example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so on inside a database and each time a website visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which should be shown on a certain page. MySQL is extremely popular because of its great functionality, ease of use and the fact that it can operate with lots of popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth. All dynamic web sites which are built with a script-driven application require some type of database and many of the most widely used ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting

Creating or editing a MySQL database will be very easy with each one of our Linux shared hosting. That can be performed via our feature-rich Hepsia Control Panel through which you can set up or delete a database, set up a backup with one mouse click or employ the effective phpMyAdmin instrument so as to change cells and tables or import a whole database if you are moving a script-driven site from another web hosting provider. You may also enable remote access to any database inside your account and decide from what IP addresses the connection will be established, in order to guarantee the safety of your info. If you decide to employ any of the script platforms which we provide with our script installer, you will not need to do anything because our system will set up a new database and link it to the website automatically. If you face any issues to control your databases, you can check our help articles and educational videos or communicate with our tech support team.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting due to the fact that we have the newest version installed on all servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP, you will be able to swiftly set up or erase a database, change its password, back it up with a single click or examine the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you'd like to handle the content of a database directly, not through a script, you'll have two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available in the CP, or using an application set up on your laptop or computer since we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you will have to include your IP address from the web hosting account first as an extra level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
