All script apps including forums or e-shops store their data in a database - a collection of cells and tables containing the site data such as items, prices, comments, and many others. When you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required information, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and amongst the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it functions on different platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its great performance even with big databases. Numerous famous platforms such as Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to save their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Hosting

You shall be able to use script-driven platforms that require a MySQL database with each of the Linux hosting we offer you. You could set up a whole new database from your Hepsia website hosting CP and the total number of databases which you can have simultaneously will depend on the package that you select. We also offer advanced options to handle your databases, such as a one-click backup and remote accessibility. With the latter option you shall be able to employ software on your computer to connect to a database on our hosting servers and manage it. For convenient administration through the CP we provide the highly effective phpMyAdmin software tool, that will allow you to edit cells or tables and import or export whole databases using a web interface.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our semi-dedicated packages considering the fact that we have the newest version installed on all servers - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you'll be able to easily create or remove 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 handle the content of a database directly, not via a script, you'll have 2 options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available in the CP, or using an application installed on your computer as we support remote database access. For the latter option, you will need to include your IP address from the web hosting account first as an extra level of security against unauthorized access to your information.
