MySQL is among the most widespread database admin systems out there. A database is a set of cells with info that are arranged in tables and the management system is the software that links the information to a script app. For example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so forth within a database and every time a visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which should be accessible on a specific page. MySQL is quite popular due to its excellent performance, ease of use and the fact that it can work with many popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic websites that are developed with a script-driven app need some type of database and some of the most popular ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our Linux cloud hosting will enable you to take care of all your MySQL databases easily. It takes just a couple of mouse clicks to create a new database and with one more click you can back it up if you want to have a copy before you update your site, for instance. You shall be able to modify the password, delete a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you may opt for the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely in order to make sure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your info. If you want to see the database content or modify any cell or table from the CP, you should use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven applications will also be super easy as our script installer will create a database for the script which you have chosen automatically.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting since we have the latest version set up on all machines - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to easily set up or erase a database, change its password, back it up with just a single mouse click or check out 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 two 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 personal computer since we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you'll need to add your IP address through the web hosting account first as an additional level of protection against unauthorized access to your info.
