All script apps like forums or virtual shops keep their information inside a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains all the website info such as items, prices, comments, and many others. Every time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified data, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and amongst the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used as it operates on several platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its excellent functionality even with big databases. Numerous famous platforms like WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to store their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting
Setting up or changing a MySQL database is going to be quite simple with each of our shared hosting plans. That can be carried out through our feature-rich Hepsia CP where you can create or delete a database, set up a backup copy with just a single click or use the effective phpMyAdmin software tool to change cells and tables or import a whole database if you are moving a script-driven Internet site from another service provider. You can also enable remote access to any database inside your account and select from what IP addresses the connection shall be established, so that you can guarantee the protection of your information. Should you decide to use any of the script platforms that we offer you with our script installer, you won't need to do anything because our system will create a whole new database and link it to the site automatically. If you face any difficulties to manage your databases, you can examine our help articles and training videos or get hold of our tech support team.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our semi-dedicated plans given that we have the newest version installed on all machines - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you will be able to easily create or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with one mouse click or check out the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you'd like to handle the content of a database directly, not through a script, you will have 2 options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available in the Control Panel, or using an application installed on your computer considering the fact that we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you will need to add your IP address through the web hosting account first as an extra level of safety against unauthorized access to your information.
