All script apps like forums or e-shops store their information within a database - a set of cells and tables containing all of the site info including items, prices, comments, and many others. When you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required info, then shows it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it works on different platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its fantastic effectiveness even with large databases. A lot of well-known platforms such as WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to keep their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Web Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel offered with our web hosting allows you to take care of all your MySQL databases easily. It requires just a few mouse clicks to set up a brand new database and with only one more click you may back it up if you'd like to have a copy before you update your web site, for instance. You will be able to change the password, erase a database or enable remote access to it just as fast. For the latter option you could pick the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely in order to ensure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your information. If you wish to view the database content or modify any cell or table through the Control Panel, you should use phpMyAdmin, a powerful web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven apps shall also be super easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script that you have picked automatically.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our semi-dedicated servers due to the fact that we have the newest version set up on all machines - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP, you will be able to quickly set up or delete a database, change its password, back it up with one 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 through a script, you will have two options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available inside the Control Panel, or using an application installed on your personal computer considering the fact that we support remote database access. For the latter option, you will have to include your IP address via the hosting account first as an extra level of safety against unauthorized access to your info.
