MySQL is among the most commonly used database administration systems in existence. A database is a set of cells with information which are structured in tables and the administration system is the piece of software which links the data to a script application. As an illustration, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so on inside a database and every time a site visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that needs to be shown on a specific page. MySQL is very popular due to its excellent functionality, ease of use and the fact that it can operate with a lot of popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic Internet sites that are developed with a script-driven app require some type of database and many of the most popular ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Web Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our Linux cloud web hosting packages will permit you to take care of all your MySQL databases easily. It takes just a few clicks to create a completely new database and with just one more click you may back it up if you'd like to have a copy before you update your web site, for instance. You shall be able to change the password, erase a database or allow remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you may opt for the IP addresses that'll be able to connect to the database remotely to make sure that unauthorized people shall not be able to access your information. If you wish to view the database content or edit any cell or table using the CP, you can use phpMyAdmin, a powerful web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven apps will also be super easy as our script installer will create a database for the script you have picked out 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 packages given that we have the most up-to-date version installed on all servers - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP, you shall be able to quickly create or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with one click or examine the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you would like to handle the content of a database directly, not through a script, you shall have two options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available inside the CP, or using an app set up on your laptop or computer since we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you'll need to include your IP address via the hosting account first as an additional level of security against unauthorized access to your information.
