All script applications such as forums or web stores save their info inside a database - a group of cells and tables containing all of the Internet site info including items, prices, comments, and so forth. Each time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary information, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and among the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it works on a variety of platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its great effectiveness even with massive databases. A lot of popular platforms such as Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to save their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to use script-driven platforms which require a MySQL database with any of the Linux cloud hosting that we offer you. You could set up a completely new database from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the total number of databases that you can have simultaneously is determined by the package that you select. We also offer you advanced options to manage your databases, like a one-click backup and remote access. With the latter option you'll be able to employ software on your personal computer to connect to a database on our website hosting servers and manage it. For easy management through the CP we offer the highly efficient phpMyAdmin tool, that will allow you to change tables or cells and import or export entire databases using a web interface. If you take advantage of our 1-click script installer, our system will create a completely new database and connect it to the application you have picked automatically, so all you will need to do to get a script-driven Internet site is to click on the Install button.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting considering the fact that we have the newest version installed on all web servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to easily set up or erase a database, change its password, back it up with a single click or examine the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you'd like to manage the content of a database directly, not via a script, you will have 2 options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available inside the Control Panel, or using an application set up on your personal computer given that we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you'll have to include your IP address via the hosting account first as an added level of safety against unauthorized access to your data.
