All script applications like forums or web stores save their information inside a database - a set of cells and tables containing all of the site info like items, prices, comments, etc. Every time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required information, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and among the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it operates on a variety of platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its excellent performance even with huge databases. Numerous famous platforms such as WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting packages will allow you to host MySQL-driven websites without any problem as our cloud platform has the latest management system version installed. You shall be able to create, erase and manage your databases without trouble via our custom Hepsia CP. If you wish to migrate a site from another host company, you should use the phpMyAdmin tool which you can access through Hepsia, or you can connect remotely right after you've permitted this feature for your IP address. In the same way you may also edit specific cells or tables in any of your databases. Generating a backup is also simple and takes just a click on the Backup button for a particular database. This function will enable you to keep a copy of a site on your computer or to export the content of a given database, change it on your end using some software, and then import it back.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our semi-dedicated packages since we have the most current version set up on all web servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to swiftly set up or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with just a single click or examine the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you would like to manage the content of a database directly, not via 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 since we support remote database access. For the latter option, you will need to add your IP address via the hosting account first as an additional level of protection against unauthorized access to your information.
