All script apps such as forums or virtual stores store their data inside a database - a set of cells and tables that contains all the site information including items, prices, comments, and so forth. Anytime you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, then shows it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and amongst the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used because it operates on different platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its wonderful efficiency even with large databases. Many widely used platforms like Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to store their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to use script-driven platforms that require a MySQL database with any of the cloud web hosting which we offer. You could set up a new database from your Hepsia hosting CP and the amount of databases which you can have at the same time depends on the package which you choose. We also provide you with advanced options to control your databases, including a one-click backup and remote access. With the latter option you'll be able to employ software on your PC to connect to a database on our website hosting servers and manage it. For simple administration from the Control Panel we provide you with the efficient phpMyAdmin tool, that will permit you to change tables or cells and import or export whole databases through a web interface. If you take advantage of our 1-click script installer, our system will create a new database and link it to the application you have chosen automatically, so all you will need to do to get a script-driven website shall be to click on the Install button.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our semi-dedicated servers as we have the most up-to-date version set up on all machines - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to quickly set up or erase a database, modify its password, back it up with one click or examine the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you would like to manage the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you'll have 2 options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available in the CP, or using an app set up on your computer as we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you'll need to include your IP address through the hosting account first as an extra level of safety against unauthorized access to your data.
