All script applications like forums or web shops save their data inside a database - a set of cells and tables containing all of the Internet site data like items, prices, comments, and many others. Whenever you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary info, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and among the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it can run on different platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its great efficiency even with large databases. Numerous widely used platforms like WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to store their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Website Hosting
Setting up or changing a MySQL database is going to be very easy with each of our website hosting plans. This can be accomplished using our feature-rich Hepsia Control Panel in which you can create or remove a database, create a backup copy with just one mouse click or take advantage of the highly efficient phpMyAdmin instrument in order to modify cells and tables or import an entire database if you are moving a script-driven website from another hosting company. You could also enable remote access to any database within your account and select from what IP addresses the connection will be established, as a way to guarantee the protection of your information. If you choose to employ any of the script platforms that we offer you with our script installer, you'll not need to do anything simply because our system will set up a new database and link it to the Internet site automatically. If you face any issues to manage your databases, you can check our help articles and instructional videos or get in touch with our tech support team.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our semi-dedicated hosting plans as we have the latest version set up on all web servers - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to easily set up or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with one click or examine the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you want to manage the content of a database directly, not through a script, you'll have two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available inside the CP, or using an app set up on your computer as we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you will have to include your IP address via the hosting account first as an added level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
