If you use a script-driven app for your website, any information that both you and the site users produce will be stored inside a database - a collection of information, that's structured in cells and tables for easier reading and writing. The latter is done through special software known as database management system and one of the most well-known ones world-wide is MySQL. A number of script apps are created to work with MySQL since it’s user-friendly, it works very well on a hosting server and it's also universal as it can function with widely used web programming languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python) and on a number of hosting server Operating Systems (Linux, UNIX, Windows). There are huge amounts of scripts that use MySQL, including quite popular ones for instance Moodle, Joomla and WordPress.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Web Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia CP included with our shared web hosting will allow you to control all your MySQL databases with ease. It takes just a couple of clicks to set up a new database and with one more click you can back it up if you want to have a copy before you update your site, for instance. You will be able to modify the password, remove a database or allow remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you'll be able to opt for the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely so as to ensure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your information. If you want to view the database content or change any cell or table from the Control Panel, you can use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven apps will also be very easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script you have chosen automatically.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our semi-dedicated hosting given that we have the latest version installed on all machines - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to easily set up or erase a database, modify its password, back it up with just a single mouse click or examine 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 will have 2 options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available in the CP, or using an application set up on your PC since we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you'll have to include your IP address through the hosting account first as an additional level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
