All script apps like forums or online shops save their information within a database - a group of cells and tables that contains the website data such as items, prices, comments, and many others. Whenever you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary info, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used as it functions on a number of platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its great functionality even with big databases. Many widely used platforms like Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to store their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting plans allow you to host MySQL-driven websites without any difficulty as our cloud platform has the latest management system version set up. You shall be able to create, delete and manage your databases easily through our custom Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like to migrate a website from another web hosting company, you may use the phpMyAdmin tool which you may access via Hepsia, or you can connect remotely right after you've allowed this function for your IP address. In the same way you may also change certain cells or tables within any of your databases. Setting up a backup is just as simple and takes only a click on the Backup button for a specific database. This feature will allow you to keep a copy of a website on your computer or to export the content of a particular database, change 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 plans given that we have the newest version set up on all machines - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to easily set up or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with one click or check out the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you want to handle the content of a database directly, not through a script, you'll have two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available inside the Control Panel, or using an application installed on your PC considering the fact that we support remote database access. For the latter option, you'll need to add your IP address from the hosting account first as an added level of protection against unauthorized access to your information.
