When you use a script-driven application for your Internet site, any information that both you and the website users create will be stored in a database - an accumulation of data, which is organized in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is accomplished by employing special software known as database management system and one of the most well-known ones world-wide is MySQL. A wide range of script apps are created to work with MySQL because it is easy to work with, it works perfectly on a web server and it is universal as it can work with well-known web programming languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP) and on several hosting server OS (Linux, UNIX, Windows). There are huge amounts of scripts that use MySQL, including extremely popular ones such as WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting

You shall be able to use script-driven platforms which require a MySQL database with each one of the shared hosting which we provide. You can set up a new database from the Hepsia web hosting CP and the total number of databases you can have simultaneously depends on the package which you choose. We also offer advanced options to control your databases, like a one-click backup and remote access. With the latter option you'll be able to employ software on your computer to connect to a database on our servers and manage it. For simple administration via the Control Panel we provide you with the highly effective phpMyAdmin software tool, which will enable you to change tables or cells and import or export entire databases using a web interface. If you take advantage of our 1-click script installer, our system will create a completely new database and connect it to the application you have picked out automatically, so all you will need to do to get a script-driven website will be to click on the Install button.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our semi-dedicated servers since we have the most up-to-date version set up on all machines - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP, you will be able to swiftly set up or erase a database, modify its password, back it up with a single mouse click or check the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you want to handle the content of a database directly, not via a script, you will have 2 options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available in the Control Panel, or using an application set up on your PC as we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you'll have to add your IP address through the hosting account first as an extra level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
