If you use a script-driven application for your site, any info which both you and the website users create shall be stored within a database - a collection of information, that is arranged in cells and tables for easier reading and writing. The latter is accomplished through special software called database management system and one of the most popular ones globally is MySQL. A lot of script applications are created to work with MySQL since it’s convenient to use, it performs exceptionally well on a web server and it is universal as it can function with popular web programming languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java) and on a number of hosting server OS (Linux, UNIX, Windows). There are literally thousands of scripts which use MySQL, including popular ones like WordPress, Moodle and Joomla.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting allow you to host MySQL-driven Internet sites without any difficulty as our cloud platform has the latest management system version set up. You will be able to set up, remove and control your databases easily through our custom-made Hepsia CP. If you would like to migrate a website from another hosting provider, you can use the phpMyAdmin tool which you can access via Hepsia, or you can connect remotely right after you have allowed this function for your IP address. In the same way you can also modify certain cells or tables in any of your databases. Creating a backup is also painless and requires just a mouse click on the Backup button for a certain database. This function will permit you to keep a copy of a website on your personal computer or to export the content of a certain database, modify it on your end using some software, and then import it back.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our semi-dedicated servers as we have the newest version set up on all web servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you will be able to quickly set up or erase a database, change its password, back it up with just a single mouse click or check the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you'd like to handle the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you'll have 2 options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available in the CP, or using an application set up on your PC given that we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you'll have to add your IP address from the hosting account first as an added level of security against unauthorized access to your data.
