If you use a script-driven application for your site, any data that both you and the website users create shall be stored inside a database - an accumulation of info, that's arranged in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is accomplished by using special software known as database management system and one of the most popular ones globally is MySQL. A number of script apps are built to work with MySQL as it's easy to work with, it performs exceptionally well on a hosting server and it is universal as it can work with common web programming languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python) and on a variety of web server Operating Systems (Windows, Linux, UNIX). There are huge amounts of scripts which use MySQL, including extremely popular ones such as Moodle, Joomla and WordPress.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting

Creating or changing a MySQL database shall be easy with each one of our shared hosting service. This can be performed via our feature-rich Hepsia Control Panel where you can create or remove a database, set up a backup with only one mouse click or employ the effective phpMyAdmin instrument in order to change cells and tables or import a whole database if you are moving a script-driven website from another hosting company. You can even enable remote access to any database inside your account and decide from what IP addresses the connection shall be established, so as to ensure the protection of your info. If you decide to take advantage of any of the script platforms which we provide with our script installer, you won't have to do anything because our system will create a new database and link it to the site automatically. If you experience any issues to control your databases, you should check our help articles and educational videos or get in touch with our technical support.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our semi-dedicated service given that we have the most current version set up on all web servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you shall be able to easily create or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with one mouse click or check the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you'd like to handle the content of a database directly, not through a script, you will have 2 options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available in the CP, or using an app set up on your computer given that we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you'll have to include your IP address through the web hosting account first as an additional level of protection against unauthorized access to your info.
