All script apps including forums or web shops store their information in a database - a set of cells and tables which contains the website information like items, prices, comments, and so forth. Each time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed information, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and amongst the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used as it can run on various platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its excellent performance even with massive databases. A lot of famous platforms including WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to keep their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Website Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia CP offered with our website hosting allows you to take care of all your MySQL databases without difficulty. It takes only a couple of clicks to set up a new database and with only one more click you can back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your Internet site, for instance. You'll be able to modify the password, remove a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you could opt for the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely to make sure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your data. If you wish to view the database content or modify any cell or table via the CP, you should use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven apps will also be easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script that you have selected automatically.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our semi-dedicated servers as we have the latest version installed on all machines - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you shall be able to easily set up or remove a database, change its password, back it up with just a single click or check 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 2 options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available inside the Control Panel, or using an app set up on your personal computer as we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you will need to include your IP address from the hosting account first as an extra level of safety against unauthorized access to your data.
