All script apps including forums or virtual stores save their info inside a database - a set of cells and tables that contains all of the Internet site data including items, prices, comments, etc. Each time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, 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 widely used because it can run on various platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its amazing functionality even with massive databases. Numerous widely used platforms including Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to store their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Web Hosting

You will be able to use script-driven platforms which require a MySQL database with each of the Linux web hosting plans we offer. You can easily set up a whole new database from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the total number of databases that you can have at a time will depend on the package you choose. We also provide you with advanced options to manage your databases, like a one-click backup and remote accessibility.

For convenient management via the CP we provide the efficient phpMyAdmin tool, which will enable you to modify cells or tables and import or export entire databases using a web interface.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our semi-dedicated plans as we have the most up-to-date version installed on all web servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to quickly create or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with just a single mouse click or check the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you'd like to manage the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you will have 2 options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available in the Control Panel, or using an app installed on your personal computer as we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you will need to add your IP address from the hosting account first as an added level of security against unauthorized access to your info.
