If you use a script-driven application for your website, any information which both you and the website users produce shall be stored in a database - a collection of information, that is arranged in cells and tables for easier reading and writing. The latter is accomplished by employing special software referred to as database management system and one of the most popular ones around the globe is MySQL. A number of script applications are designed to work with MySQL since it is convenient to use, it performs perfectly on a hosting server and it is universal as it can work with popular web programming languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP) and on several server Operating Systems (UNIX, Linux, Windows). There are hundreds of scripts which use MySQL, including popular ones like WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Website Hosting
You shall be able to use script-driven platforms which require a MySQL database with any of the Linux cloud website hosting service that we provide. You can easily set up a completely new database through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the amount of databases you can have at a time is determined by the package which you pick out. We also offer you advanced options to control your databases, such as a one-click backup and remote access. With the latter option you shall be able to employ software on your personal computer to connect to a database on our web servers and manage it. For easy administration through the CP we provide you with the highly efficient phpMyAdmin tool, which will allow you to modify cells or tables and import or export entire databases through a web interface. If you use our 1-click script installer, our system will create a new database and link it to the application you have selected automatically, so all you will need to do to get a script-driven website is to click on the Install button.
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 due to the fact that we have the newest version set up on all web servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP, you shall be able to easily create or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with a single mouse click or check the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you would like to handle the content of a database directly, not via a script, you will have two options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available in the CP, or using an app installed on your PC considering the fact that we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you'll need to include your IP address from the hosting account first as an extra level of protection against unauthorized access to your information.
