If you use a script-driven app for your website, any info which both you and the site users create shall be stored in a database - a collection of information, that's structured in cells and tables for simplier and 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 world-wide is MySQL. A wide range of script apps are created to work with MySQL as it is simple to use, it works perfectly on a website hosting server and it is universal as it can work with well-known web programming languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java) and on a variety of server Operating Systems (Windows, Linux, UNIX). There are literally thousands of scripts that use MySQL, including very popular ones for example WordPress, Moodle and Joomla™.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Web Hosting
You shall be able to use script-driven platforms which require a MySQL database with each one of the shared web hosting service
we offer. You can create a whole new database from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the total number of databases that you can have simultaneously depends on the package that you choose. We also offer you advanced options to handle your databases, like a one-click backup and remote access. With the latter option you shall be able to use software on your PC to connect to a database on our web servers and manage it. For simple management via the Control Panel we provide you with the efficient phpMyAdmin software tool, that will enable you to change tables or cells and import or export entire databases through a web interface. If you take advantage of our 1-click script installer, our system shall create a new database and link it to the app you have picked out automatically, so all you will need to do to get a script-driven Internet site is to click on the Install button.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our Linux semi-dedicated servers
as we have the most current version installed on all machines - MySQL 5. Via 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 a single click or check the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you'd like to handle the content of a database directly, not via a script, you will have 2 options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available inside the Control Panel, or using an application set up on your laptop or computer since we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you'll need to add your IP address from the hosting account first as an extra level of protection against unauthorized access to your info.
