When you use a script-driven application for your website, any information which both you and the website users generate will be stored in a database - a collection of info, which is organized in cells and tables for easier reading and writing. The latter is accomplished by using special software called database management system and one of the most popular ones worldwide is MySQL. A wide range of script apps are built to work with MySQL because it is convenient to use, it functions really well on a server and it's also universal as it can perform with well-known web programming languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java) and on a number of hosting server OS (Windows, Linux, UNIX). There are thousands of scripts which use MySQL, including extremely popular ones for instance WordPress, Joomla™ and Moodle.
MySQL 5 Databases in Hosting
Our hosting plans
will enable you to host MySQL-driven sites without problems as our cloud platform has the latest management system version set up. You will be able to set up, remove and manage your databases without trouble through our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like to migrate a site from another web hosting company, you may use the phpMyAdmin tool which you may access through Hepsia, or you can connect remotely right after you have enabled this function for your IP address. In the same way you could also change specific cells or tables within any of your databases. Generating a backup is equally uncomplicated and takes simply a click on the Backup button for a specific database. This feature will enable you to keep a copy of a site on your computer or to export the content of a particular database, edit it on your end using appropriate software, and then import it back.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our semi-dedicated plans
as we have the latest version installed on all servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you will be able to easily set up or erase a database, change its password, back it up with a single click or check the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you want to handle the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you'll have two options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available inside the CP, or using an application set up on your computer as we support remote database access. For the latter option, you will need to include your IP address from the hosting account first as an added level of security against unauthorized access to your information.
