When you use a script-driven application for your Internet site, any information which both you and the site users produce shall be stored within a database - an accumulation of data, that is structured in cells and tables for easier reading and writing. The latter is done by using special software known as database management system and one of the most widely used ones world-wide is MySQL. A wide range of script apps are created to work with MySQL as it is user-friendly, it performs perfectly on a web server and it's universal as it can work with famous web programming languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java) and on various hosting server Operating Systems (Linux, UNIX, Windows). There are hundreds of scripts that use MySQL, including quite popular ones such as WordPress, Moodle and Joomla.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Website Hosting
Starting or modifying a MySQL database is going to be very easy with each one of our Linux cloud website hosting plans. That can be accomplished through our feature-rich Hepsia Control Panel in which you can create or delete a database, set up a backup copy with only one mouse click or take advantage of the efficient phpMyAdmin software instrument in order to change cells and tables or import a whole database if you are moving a script-driven Internet site from another web hosting provider. You may even enable remote access to any database within your account and choose from what IP addresses the connection shall be established, as a way to ensure the protection of your info. If you decide to take advantage of any of the script platforms we offer you with our script installer, you will not need to do anything simply because our system will create a whole new database and link it to the Internet site automatically. If you face any difficulties to manage your databases, you should check our help articles and training videos or get in touch with our technical support.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our Linux semi-dedicated servers due to the fact that we have the latest version set up on all machines - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you will be able to swiftly create or remove a database, change its password, back it up with one mouse click or check out the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you want to handle the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you will have two options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available in the CP, or using an application installed on your PC given that we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you'll have to add your IP address via the hosting account first as an added level of safety against unauthorized access to your information.
