All script apps like forums or e-stores keep their data within a database - a set of cells and tables containing all of the site info including items, prices, comments, and so forth. Anytime you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary information, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used as it works on various platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a range of scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its amazing functionality even with huge databases. Many widely used platforms including WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to store their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our hosting will enable you to manage all your MySQL databases without difficulty. It requires just a couple of mouse clicks to set up a brand new database and with one more click you may back it up if you'd like to have a copy before you update your web site, for instance. You shall be able to modify the password, delete a database or enable remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you may pick the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely to ensure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your information. If you wish to see the database content or edit any cell or table using the Control Panel, you can use phpMyAdmin, an effective web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven apps will also be super easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script you have picked automatically.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our semi-dedicated servers considering the fact that we have the most up-to-date version installed on all servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to quickly set up or erase a database, change its password, back it up with a single click or check out the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you would like to manage the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you will have 2 options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available inside the Control Panel, or using an application set up on your PC as we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you'll need to add your IP address through the web hosting account first as an extra level of safety against unauthorized access to your info.
