MySQL is one of the most commonly used database control systems out there. A database is a group of cells with information that are structured in tables and the control system is the piece of software that links the information to a script app. For example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so on within a database and every single time a website visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that needs to be displayed on a certain page. MySQL is quite popular because of its superb functionality, convenience and the fact that it can operate with numerous popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic Internet sites that are designed with a script-driven app need some form of database and many of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting

Starting or changing a MySQL database will be really easy with any of our shared hosting. That can be accomplished via our feature-rich Hepsia Control Panel in which you can create or delete a database, set up a backup copy with a single mouse click or employ the highly effective phpMyAdmin tool in order to modify cells and tables or import a whole database if you are moving a script-driven website from another web hosting provider. You could also enable remote access to any database in your account and decide from what IP addresses the connection shall be established, to ensure the security of your data. Should you decide to employ any of the script platforms which we provide with our script installer, you won't need to do anything because our system will set up a whole new database and link it to the site automatically. If you experience any issues to control your databases, you can examine our help articles and video tutorials or get in touch with our tech support team.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our semi-dedicated servers considering the fact that we have the most up-to-date version set up on all web servers - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you will be able to swiftly create or remove a database, change its password, back it up with a single mouse click or check out the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you want to manage the content of a database directly, not via a script, you will have two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available inside the Control Panel, or using an app set up on your computer as we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you will need to add your IP address through the hosting account first as an added level of safety against unauthorized access to your data.
