If you use a script-driven application for your Internet site, any information which both you and the website users generate shall be stored in a database - a collection of data, that is structured in cells and tables for simpler reading and writing. The latter is carried out by employing special software called database management system and one of the most well-known ones worldwide is MySQL. A large amount of script applications are designed to work with MySQL as it is simple to use, it functions really well on a website hosting server and it's universal as it can function with widely used web programming languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java) and on a variety of server OS (Windows, Linux, UNIX). There are thousands of scripts that use MySQL, including quite popular ones for instance Moodle, Joomla and WordPress.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Web Hosting
Setting up or changing a MySQL database is going to be easy with any of our shared web hosting. This can be carried out through our feature-rich Hepsia CP through which you can set up or delete a database, set up a backup copy with one click or take advantage of the efficient phpMyAdmin instrument in order to change cells and tables or import an entire database if you are moving a script-driven site from another hosting company. You may even enable remote access to any database inside your account and choose from what IP addresses the connection will be established, so that you can guarantee the security of your info. If you opt to take advantage of any of the script platforms which we provide with our script installer, you'll not need to do anything because our system will set up a new database and link it to the site automatically. If you experience any issues to control your databases, you can check our help articles and instructional videos or communicate with our tech support.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our semi-dedicated servers given that we have the newest version set up on all servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP, you'll be able to quickly create or erase a database, change its password, back it up with a single mouse click or check the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you want to manage 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, that's available inside the Control Panel, or using an application set up on your personal computer as we support remote database access. For the latter option, you'll have to include your IP address via the hosting account first as an extra level of safety against unauthorized access to your data.
