MySQL is one of the most popular database admin systems available. A database is a collection of cells with info which are organized in tables and the control system is the software that links the information to a script application. As an illustration, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so forth within a database and every single time a site visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that should be displayed on a certain page. MySQL is quite popular because of its terrific efficiency, simplicity of use and the fact that it can work with a lot of popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth. All dynamic sites which are designed with a script-driven application need some form of database and a lot of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel included with our Linux shared hosting packages will enable you to manage all your MySQL databases with ease. It requires only a few mouse clicks to set up a brand new database and with one more click you can back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your website, for example. You will be able to change the password, remove a database or allow remote access to it just as fast. For the latter option you can choose the IP addresses that'll be able to connect to the database remotely so as to ensure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your data. If you want to view the database content or change any cell or table through the Control Panel, you should use phpMyAdmin, an efficient web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven applications shall also be easy as our script installer will create a database for the script you have chosen automatically.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages given that we have the most up-to-date version set up on all machines - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to quickly set up or delete a database, change its password, back it up with a single mouse click or check 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 will have 2 options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available in the CP, or using an app set up on your laptop or computer given that we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you'll need to include your IP address through the hosting account first as an added level of protection against unauthorized access to your information.
