All script applications such as forums or web shops save their info within a database - a collection of cells and tables that contains all of the website information including items, prices, comments, and many others. Whenever you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required info, then shows it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used as it operates on different platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its fantastic functionality even with massive databases. Many widely used platforms such as Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to store their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Website Hosting
You shall be able to use script-driven platforms that require a MySQL database with each one of the Linux cloud website hosting packages that we offer you. You can easily set up a new database via the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the total number of databases you can have simultaneously will depend on the package that you choose. We also provide you with advanced options to manage your databases, such as a one-click backup and remote access. With the latter option you'll be able to employ software on your personal computer to connect to a database on our servers and manage it. For easy administration via the CP we provide the efficient phpMyAdmin tool, which will enable you to change tables or cells and import or export entire 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 app you have picked out automatically, so all you will have to do to get a script-driven website is to click on the Install button.
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 packages considering the fact that we have the latest version set up on all servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP, you shall be able to quickly create or erase a database, modify its password, back it up with one click or examine the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you would like to manage 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 app installed on your laptop or computer since we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you'll have to add your IP address through the web hosting account first as an additional level of safety against unauthorized access to your data.
