If you use a script-driven application for your website, any information that both you and the website users produce shall be stored within a database - a collection of info, which is arranged in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is carried out by using special software known as database management system and one of the most well-known ones worldwide is MySQL. A large amount of script apps are designed to work with MySQL since it is easy to use, it performs really well on a hosting server and it's universal as it can work with common web programming languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python) and on several server Operating Systems (Windows, Linux, UNIX). There are literally thousands of scripts that use MySQL, including really popular ones for instance Moodle, Joomla and WordPress.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting
Setting up or changing a MySQL database shall be quite simple with any of our Linux cloud packages. That can be carried out using our feature-rich Hepsia Control Panel through which you can create or remove a database, set up a backup with only one mouse click or employ the efficient phpMyAdmin software instrument so as to modify cells and tables or import an entire database if you are moving a script-driven website from another hosting provider. You may also enable remote access to any database in your account and decide from what IP addresses the connection shall be established, to ensure the safety of your data. If you decide to take advantage of any of the script platforms we offer with our script installer, you will not have to do anything simply because our system will create a whole new database and link it to the website automatically. If you encounter any issues to control your databases, you should check 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 Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages considering the fact that we have the most up-to-date version installed on all machines - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you shall be able to quickly set up or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with one mouse click or examine the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you want to manage the content of a database directly, not through a script, you'll have 2 options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available inside the CP, or using an application installed on your PC given that we support remote database access. For the latter option, you will have to add your IP address via the hosting account first as an additional level of safety against unauthorized access to your information.
