If you use a script-driven application for your website, any information which both you and the website users create shall be stored in a database - a collection of information, that is structured in cells and tables for easier reading and writing. The latter is carried out by employing special software known as database management system and one of the most widely used ones worldwide is MySQL. A large amount of script applications are created to work with MySQL since it’s simple to use, it functions exceptionally well on a website hosting server and it is universal as it can perform with common web programming languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python) and on a number of hosting server Operating Systems (Windows, UNIX, Linux). There are thousands of scripts that use MySQL, including popular ones such as WordPress, Moodle and Joomla.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting
Starting or editing a MySQL database is going to be really easy with any of our cloud hosting services. This can be performed via our feature-rich Hepsia CP through which you can create or erase a database, set up a backup copy with just one mouse click or take advantage of the highly effective phpMyAdmin tool to change cells and tables or import an entire database if you are moving a script-driven Internet site from another web hosting provider. You can even enable remote access to any database inside your account and decide from what IP addresses the connection will be established, so as to ensure the protection of your information. If you decide to employ any of the script platforms we offer you with our script installer, you'll not have to do anything as our system will create a whole new database and link it to the Internet site automatically. If you encounter any problems to manage your databases, you can examine our help articles and training videos or get in touch with our tech support.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our semi-dedicated hosting services due to the fact that we have the newest version installed on all web servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to quickly create or erase a database, change its password, back it up with a single click or examine the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you'd like to handle the content of a database directly, not through a script, you'll have 2 options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available in the Control Panel, or using an app set up on your personal computer considering the fact that we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you will need to include your IP address from the hosting account first as an added level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
