If you use a script-driven app for your site, any information that both you and the website users produce shall be stored inside a database - a collection of information, which is structured in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is carried out by using special software known as database management system and one of the most widely used ones worldwide is MySQL. A number of script apps are designed to work with MySQL because it’s easy to work with, it works really well on a hosting server and it's also universal as it can perform with well-known web programming languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java) and on a variety of web server OS (UNIX, Linux, Windows). There are literally thousands of scripts that use MySQL, including very popular ones for instance WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our cloud hosting plans will permit you to take care of all your MySQL databases effortlessly. It takes only a few clicks to create a new database and with only one more click you could back it up if you'd like to have a copy before you update your Internet site, for instance. You will be able to change the password, erase a database or allow remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you'll be able to choose the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely so as to make sure that unauthorized people shall not be able to access your data. If you would like to see the database content or edit any cell or table via the CP, you may use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven applications shall also be super easy as our script installer will create a database for the script that you have picked automatically.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our semi-dedicated hosting plans as we have the newest version set up on all machines - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to swiftly set up or erase a database, change its password, back it up with just a single click or check the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you want to handle the content of a database directly, not through a script, you will have 2 options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available inside the Control Panel, or using an app installed on your computer as we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you will have to add your IP address from the web hosting account first as an added level of security against unauthorized access to your data.
