All script applications including forums or online shops save their info inside a database - a group of cells and tables which contains all the site info like items, prices, comments, and many others. Each time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required data, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it functions on several platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its excellent functionality even with large databases. Many widely used platforms including Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to keep their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Web Hosting

You will be able to use script-driven platforms that require a MySQL database with each one of the Linux web hosting we offer you. You can create a whole new database from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the total number of databases you can have at the same time depends on the package you select. We also offer advanced options to control your databases, such as a one-click backup and remote access. With the latter option you shall be able to use software on your computer to connect to a database on our web hosting servers and manage it. For convenient management through the Control Panel we provide you with the efficient phpMyAdmin software tool, which will enable you to modify cells or tables and import or export whole databases through a web interface. If you take advantage of our 1-click script installer, our system will create a brand new database and link it to the application you have picked automatically, so all you will need to do to get a script-driven Internet site will be to click on the Install button.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting considering the fact that we have the most current version installed on all web servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to quickly create or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with just a single mouse click or examine the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you want to manage the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you'll have 2 options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available in the Control Panel, or using an application set up on your laptop or computer given that we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you'll have to add your IP address from the hosting account first as an additional level of protection against unauthorized access to your info.
