All script apps such as forums or online stores keep their information in a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains all of the site data including items, prices, comments, etc. Every time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed info, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and among the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it runs on a variety of platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a variety of scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its wonderful performance even with large databases. Many popular platforms like WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to keep their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Website Hosting
You will be able to use script-driven platforms which require a MySQL database with each of the Linux website hosting that we offer you. You can create a whole new database through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the amount of databases that you can have at the same time is determined by the package that you choose. We also offer advanced options to handle your databases, such as a one-click backup and remote accessibility. With the latter option you'll be able to employ software on your PC to connect to a database on our web servers and manage it. For convenient management through the CP we provide you with the effective phpMyAdmin software tool, which will enable you to edit cells or tables and import or export entire databases using a web interface. If you use our 1-click script installer, our system will create a brand new database and connect it to the application you have chosen automatically, so all you'll have to do to get a script-driven Internet site is to click on the Install button.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our semi-dedicated servers since we have the latest version set up on all machines - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you shall be able to quickly set up or remove a database, change its password, back it up with one mouse click or check the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you'd like to manage the content of a database directly, not through a script, you will have two options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available in the Control Panel, or using an application set up on your laptop or computer since we support remote database access. For the latter option, you'll need to add your IP address through the hosting account first as an additional level of security against unauthorized access to your info.
