If you use a script-driven application for your website, any information that both you and the site users produce will be stored within a database - a collection of information, that's structured in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is done through special software called database management system and one of the most widely used ones world-wide is MySQL. A large amount of script apps are built to work with MySQL as it is user-friendly, it works really well on a website hosting server and it's also universal as it can work with popular web programming languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python) and on several web server OS (UNIX, Linux, Windows). There are hundreds of scripts that use MySQL, including popular ones like WordPress, Moodle and Joomla.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting

Setting up or editing a MySQL database will be really easy with each of our cloud hosting. That can be carried out using our feature-rich Hepsia CP through which you can create or erase a database, set up a backup copy with a single click or employ the powerful phpMyAdmin software tool so as to modify cells and tables or import a whole database if you are moving a script-driven Internet site from another hosting provider. You can even enable remote access to any database in your account and decide from what IP addresses the connection shall be established, in order to guarantee the protection of your data. Should you decide to employ any of the script platforms that we offer you with our script installer, you'll not need to do anything because our system will set up a brand new database and link it to the website automatically. If you experience any issues to control your databases, you should check our help articles and educational videos or make contact with our tech support.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our semi-dedicated hosting as we have the latest version set up on all servers - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to quickly set up or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with one click or examine the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you would like to handle the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you'll have 2 options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available inside the Control Panel, or using an application set up on your laptop or computer given that we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you'll need to add your IP address via the hosting account first as an added level of security against unauthorized access to your data.
