All script apps such as forums or online stores keep their info inside a database - a group of cells and tables containing the website info such as items, prices, comments, and so on. When you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary info, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and amongst the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used as it functions on various platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a variety of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its excellent performance even with big databases. Many popular platforms such as Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to store their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting

You'll be able to use script-driven platforms which require a MySQL database with each of the shared hosting we offer you. You can create a completely new database from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the amount of databases which you can have simultaneously depends on the package that you select. We also offer you advanced options to control your databases, including a one-click backup and remote accessibility. With the latter option you shall be able to employ software on your personal computer to connect to a database on our website hosting servers and manage it. For simple administration through the CP we offer the efficient phpMyAdmin tool, which will allow you to change tables or cells and import or export entire databases via a web interface. If you take advantage of our 1-click script installer, our system shall create a completely new database and connect it to the application you have picked out automatically, so all you'll have to do to get a script-driven website will be 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 each of our semi-dedicated servers due to the fact that we have the newest version set up on all servers - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP, you shall be able to quickly create or erase a database, modify its password, back it up with just a single mouse click or examine the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you would like to manage the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you'll have 2 options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available in the Control Panel, or using an application installed on your PC as we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you will need to add your IP address from the hosting account first as an added level of protection against unauthorized access to your info.
