MySQL is among the most widely used database control systems out there. A database is a group of cells with info which are organized in tables and the control system is the software which links the information to a script application. For instance, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so on in a database and every single time a visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that has to be shown on a certain page. MySQL is really popular because of its superb performance, ease of use and the fact that it can work with a lot of popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic Internet sites which are designed with a script-driven application need some form of database and a lot of the most widely used ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting

Creating or changing a MySQL database will be very simple with each of our cloud hosting. This can be done through our feature-rich Hepsia CP where you can create or delete a database, set up a backup copy with a single mouse click or employ the efficient phpMyAdmin tool in order to modify cells and tables or import a whole database if you are moving a script-driven Internet site from another service provider. You could also enable remote access to any database within your account and select from what IP addresses the connection shall be established, so as to ensure the protection of your information. If you opt to use any of the script platforms which we offer with our script installer, you'll not need to do anything as our system will create a whole new database and link it to the website automatically. If you face any problems to manage your databases, you can examine our help articles and instructional videos or make contact with our tech support.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our Linux semi-dedicated services as we have the most up-to-date version set up on all servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP, you shall be able to quickly create or erase a database, modify its password, back it up with one mouse click or examine 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 working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available inside the CP, or using an application installed on your computer considering the fact that we support remote database access. For the latter option, you'll have to add your IP address via the hosting account first as an extra level of safety against unauthorized access to your info.
