MySQL is one of the most widely used database admin systems out there. A database is a group of cells with data which are arranged in tables and the administration system is the piece of software which links the data to a script application. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc inside a database and every time a visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which should be accessible on a particular page. MySQL is really popular because of its great performance, simplicity of use and the fact that it can operate with many popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth. All dynamic Internet sites which are developed with a script-driven application need some form of database and many of the most popular ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting

Creating or changing a MySQL database will be very easy with any of our cloud hosting packages. This can be accomplished using our feature-rich Hepsia CP through which you can create or delete a database, set up a backup with one mouse click or take advantage of the highly efficient phpMyAdmin software instrument to change cells and tables or import an entire database if you are moving a script-driven website from another web hosting provider. You may even enable remote access to any database within your account and decide from what IP addresses the connection shall be established, so as to guarantee the security of your information. If you opt to use any of the script platforms which we offer you with our script installer, you won't need to do anything because our system will set up a new database and link it to the site automatically. If you encounter any problems to manage your databases, you can check our help articles and instructional videos or make contact with our tech support.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our semi-dedicated hosting since we have the most current version installed on all machines - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to swiftly create or remove a database, modify its password, back it up with one click or check out the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you want to handle the content of a database directly, not through a script, you will have 2 options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available inside the Control Panel, or using an application set up on your personal computer since we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you will need to include your IP address via the web hosting account first as an additional level of safety against unauthorized access to your information.
