MySQL is among the most widely used database admin systems in existence. A database is a group of cells with info that are structured in tables and the administration system is the software that links the info to a script application. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc within a database and every time a site visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that ought to be shown on a particular page. MySQL is very popular due to its terrific efficiency, ease of use and the fact that it can operate with many popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic websites that are built with a script-driven app require some type of database and a number of the most popular ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel included with our cloud plans will enable you to manage all your MySQL databases effortlessly. It takes only a couple of clicks to set up a brand new database and with one more click you could back it up if you want to have a copy before you update your web 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 data. If you would like to view the database content or modify any cell or table through the Control Panel, you can use phpMyAdmin, an effective web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven applications 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 shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our semi-dedicated plans given that we have the newest version set up on all web servers - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP, you'll be able to quickly create or erase a database, change its password, back it up with one click or check out the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you want to handle the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you will have two options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available in the Control Panel, or using an application installed on your computer as we support remote database access. For the latter option, you will have to include your IP address from the hosting account first as an extra level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
