MySQL is among the most commonly used database control systems in existence. A database is a collection of cells with information which are arranged in tables and the control system is the software which links the info to a script application. As an illustration, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth within a database and every time a visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that needs to be shown on a certain page. MySQL is really popular due to its superb functionality, simplicity and the fact that it can function with many popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth. All dynamic Internet sites which are developed with a script-driven app require some type of database and a lot of the most widely used ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting will enable you to host MySQL-driven websites without problems as our cloud platform has the latest management system version set up. You will be able to set up, delete and control your databases without difficulty through our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like to migrate a site from another website hosting company, you should use the phpMyAdmin tool which you can access via Hepsia, or you can connect remotely right after you have enabled this function for your IP address. In the same way you could also edit specific cells or tables in any of your databases. Generating a backup is equally painless and takes just a click on the Backup button for a specific database. This feature will enable you to keep a copy of a site on your personal computer or to export the content of a particular database, change it on your end using some software, and then import it back.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our semi-dedicated servers as we have the most up-to-date version installed on all servers - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP, you shall be able to easily set up or delete 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 would like to handle the content of a database directly, not via a script, you shall have 2 options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available inside the CP, or using an application installed on your computer considering the fact that we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you'll have to include your IP address from the web hosting account first as an additional level of protection against unauthorized access to your information.
