If you use a script-driven application for your Internet site, any info which both you and the website users produce shall be stored inside a database - an accumulation of information, that's organized in cells and tables for easier reading and writing. The latter is done through special software called database management system and one of the most widely used ones worldwide is MySQL. A number of script apps are created to work with MySQL since it is convenient to use, it functions very well on a hosting server and it's universal as it can perform with common web programming languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python) and on various web server Operating Systems (Windows, Linux, UNIX). There are huge amounts of scripts that use MySQL, including popular ones for example Moodle, Joomla and WordPress.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Website Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia CP included with our Linux cloud website hosting will allow you to manage all your MySQL databases without difficulty. It requires only a couple of clicks to create a completely new database and with just one more click you could back it up if you'd like to have a copy before you update your web site, for instance. You will be able to modify the password, delete a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you'll be able to pick the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely in order to make sure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your data. If you would like to see the database content or modify any cell or table from the CP, you can use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven apps will also be easy as our script installer will create a database for the script you have selected automatically.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our semi-dedicated servers since we have the latest version installed on all machines - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to easily set up or delete a database, change its password, back it up with just a single mouse click or check the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you want to manage the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you will have 2 options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available in the CP, or using an application installed on your PC as we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you'll have to add your IP address through the hosting account first as an extra level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
