All script applications including forums or virtual shops store their info within a database - a group of cells and tables that contains all of the site data like items, prices, comments, etc. Every time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified data, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and amongst the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used as it operates on several platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a range of scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its amazing functionality even with massive databases. Numerous popular platforms such as Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to store their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud plans will allow you to host MySQL-driven websites without any problem as our cloud platform has the latest management system version set up. You will be able to set up, delete and manage your databases easily using our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. If you want to migrate a website from another website hosting provider, you may use the phpMyAdmin tool that you can access through Hepsia, or you can connect remotely right after you've permitted this function for your IP address. In the same way you could also edit specific cells or tables inside any of your databases. Generating a backup is equally simple and requires simply a mouse click on the Backup button for a particular database. This function will permit you to keep a copy of a site on your personal computer or to export the content of a particular database, change it on your end using appropriate software, and then import it back.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our semi-dedicated plans since we have the latest version installed on all web servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you'll be able to swiftly create or remove a database, change its password, back it up with one mouse click or check out the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you'd like to handle the content of a database directly, not through a script, you will have two options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available inside the Control Panel, or using an app installed on your PC given that we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you'll have to include your IP address through the hosting account first as an extra level of safety against unauthorized access to your data.
