MySQL is one of the most widely used database admin systems in existence. A database is a set of cells with info that are organized in tables and the control system is the piece of software that links the information to a script application. For example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc in a database and each time a visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that needs to be accessible on a certain page. MySQL is very popular because of its excellent performance, convenience and the fact that it can function with numerous popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic sites which are built with a script-driven application need some kind of database and a number of the most popular ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Web Hosting

Our web hosting plans will permit 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 create, delete and manage your databases without trouble using our custom Hepsia Control Panel. If you wish to migrate a site from another web hosting company, you can use the phpMyAdmin tool which you could access through Hepsia, or you can connect remotely right after you have permitted this function for your IP address. In the same way you can also edit specific cells or tables inside any of your databases. Generating a backup is also easy and requires just a mouse click on the Backup button for a specific database. This feature will allow you to keep a copy of an Internet site 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 shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our semi-dedicated plans due to the fact that we have the latest version installed on all machines - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you will be able to easily create or erase a database, change its password, back it up with a single click or check out the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you'd like to manage the content of a database directly, not through a script, you shall have 2 options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available inside the Control Panel, or using an application set up on your computer since we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you will have to add your IP address through the hosting account first as an added level of safety against unauthorized access to your data.
