All script apps including forums or e-stores keep their information within a database - a collection of cells and tables containing the website info such as items, prices, comments, etc. Every time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and among the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used as it can run on various platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its fantastic functionality even with big databases. Lots of popular platforms including WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to store their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting service will enable you to host MySQL-driven Internet sites without problems as our cloud platform has the latest management system version installed. You will be able to set up, delete and control your databases without trouble through our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like to migrate a website from another web hosting provider, you may use the phpMyAdmin tool which you may access from Hepsia, or you can connect remotely right after you've allowed this feature for your IP address. In the same way you may also change specific cells or tables inside any of your databases. Creating a backup is also simple and requires only a mouse click on the Backup button for a particular database. This feature allows you to keep a copy of a site on your personal computer or to export the content of a given database, edit it on your end using appropriate software, and then import it back.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our semi-dedicated service due to the fact that we have the most current version installed on all servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP, you will be able to easily set up or remove a database, change its password, back it up with a single click or check the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you would like to manage the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you'll have two options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available in the CP, or using an app set up on your personal computer given that we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you will need to add your IP address from the web hosting account first as an added level of protection against unauthorized access to your information.
