When you use a script-driven app for your website, any info which both you and the website users produce shall be stored in a database - a collection of information, which is organized in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is accomplished through special software known as database management system and one of the most well-known ones worldwide is MySQL. A number of script applications are created to work with MySQL because it is simple to use, it performs very well on a web server and it's universal as it can function with well-known web programming languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python) and on several server OS (UNIX, Linux, Windows). There are huge amounts of scripts that use MySQL, including quite popular ones such as WordPress, Moodle and Joomla™.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Web Hosting
Our Linux shared web hosting
will enable you to host MySQL-driven websites without problems as our cloud platform has the latest management system version set up. You shall be able to set up, remove and manage your databases without difficulty using our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like to migrate a website from another host company, you may use the phpMyAdmin tool which you could access via Hepsia, or you can connect remotely once you've allowed this function for your IP address. In the same way you may also change specific cells or tables within any of your databases. Setting up a backup is equally painless and requires just a mouse click on the Backup button for a certain database. This feature will enable you to keep a copy of a website on your computer or to export the content of a particular database, modify it on your end using some software, and then import it back.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our Linux semi-dedicated servers
considering the fact that we have the most current version set up on all machines - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to swiftly set up or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with one mouse click or check the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you would like to manage the content of a database directly, not through a script, you shall have two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available in the Control Panel, or using an app installed on your personal computer since we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you will have to add your IP address through the web hosting account first as an added level of security against unauthorized access to your info.
