All script applications including forums or virtual shops keep their info in a database - a set of cells and tables containing all of the Internet site information such as items, prices, comments, and so forth. Every time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it functions on a variety of platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its fantastic functionality even with huge databases. Numerous popular platforms like Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to store their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel included with our cloud hosting plans allows you to control all your MySQL databases effortlessly. It requires only a couple of mouse clicks to create a completely new database and with only one more click you can back it up if you'd like to have a copy before you update your Internet site, for instance. You shall be able to modify the password, erase a database or allow remote access to it just as fast. For the latter option you'll be able to pick the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely in order to ensure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your data. If you'd like to see the database content or modify any cell or table using the Control Panel, you may use phpMyAdmin, a powerful web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven applications shall also be very easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script that you have chosen automatically.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our semi-dedicated hosting plans since we have the most current version set up on all servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you will be able to swiftly create or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with just a single mouse click or check out the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you'd like to manage the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you'll have two options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available inside the Control Panel, or using an application set up on your PC considering the fact that we support remote database access. For the latter option, you'll have to add your IP address through the hosting account first as an added level of safety against unauthorized access to your info.
