When you use a script-driven app for your website, any information that both you and the site users produce will be stored in a database - an accumulation of data, that is arranged in cells and tables for easier reading and writing. The latter is done by using special software known as database management system and one of the most popular ones worldwide is MySQL. A lot of script applications are created to work with MySQL as it is easy to use, it performs really well on a web server and it's also universal as it can function with common web programming languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java) and on several web server Operating Systems (Windows, UNIX, Linux). There are hundreds of scripts which use MySQL, including extremely popular ones such as WordPress, Moodle and Joomla.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Web Hosting

Starting or changing a MySQL database is going to be very simple with each one of our Linux shared web hosting. That can be done via our feature-rich Hepsia Control Panel where you can create or delete a database, set up a backup with only one click or use the powerful phpMyAdmin instrument so as to modify cells and tables or import a whole database if you are moving a script-driven site from another hosting company. You can even enable remote access to any database inside your account and choose from what IP addresses the connection shall be established, in order to ensure the safety of your information. Should you decide to use any of the script platforms we offer with our script installer, you'll not need to do anything simply because our system will create a new database and link it to the site automatically. If you experience any problems to manage your databases, you should check our help articles and video tutorials or get hold of our tech support.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our Linux semi-dedicated packages given that we have the most up-to-date version installed on all machines - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP, you shall be able to quickly set up or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with a single click or check the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you'd like to handle the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you will have two options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available in the Control Panel, or using an app set up on your personal computer since we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you'll have to include your IP address through the hosting account first as an added level of security against unauthorized access to your data.
