MySQL is among the most popular database admin systems available. A database is a collection of cells with information which are structured in tables and the control system is the software which links the information to a script application. As an illustration, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc inside a database and every time a site visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that should be displayed on a certain page. MySQL is really popular because of its terrific efficiency, ease of use and the fact that it can work with many popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth. All dynamic websites which are designed with a script-driven application need some form of database and a number of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel offered with our shared hosting will allow you to take care of all your MySQL databases without difficulty. It takes just a few mouse clicks to set up a 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 site, for instance. You shall be able to change the password, erase a database or allow remote access to it just as fast. For the latter option you can opt for the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely to ensure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your information. If you'd like to view the database content or modify any cell or table using the CP, you can use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven applications shall also be very easy as our script installer will create a database for the script you have picked out automatically.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our semi-dedicated servers since we have the most current version installed on all web servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to swiftly create or delete a database, change its password, back it up with a single click or check out 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'll have 2 options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available inside the CP, or using an app set up on your PC since we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you will need to include your IP address via the web hosting account first as an added level of safety against unauthorized access to your data.
