MySQL 5 Databases
Discover what relational databases are and if using MySQL databases can be beneficial for your sites and applications.
MySQL is one of the most popular database admin systems on the market. A database is a group of cells with data which are arranged in tables and the administration system is the software that links the data to a script application. For example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so on inside a database and each time a website visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that ought to be displayed on a specific page. MySQL is very popular due to its excellent performance, convenience and the fact that it can operate with a lot of popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth. All dynamic Internet sites that are developed with a script-driven application require some kind of database and some of the most widely used ones such as Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
MySQL 5 Databases in Website Hosting
You shall be able to use script-driven platforms which require a MySQL database with each of the Linux website hosting
which we provide. You can set up a completely new database from your Hepsia hosting CP and the amount of databases you can have at the same time is determined by the package that you select. We also offer advanced options to control your databases, such as a one-click backup and remote accessibility. With the latter option you'll be able to use software on your personal computer to connect to a database on our web servers and manage it. For easy management through the Control Panel we provide you with the powerful phpMyAdmin software tool, that will enable you to modify tables or cells and import or export entire databases using a web interface. If you use our 1-click script installer, our system will create a completely new database and connect it to the application you have chosen automatically, so all you'll have to do to get a script-driven site is to click on the Install button.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our semi-dedicated hosting service
due to the fact that we have the most current version set up on all machines - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you will be able to swiftly create or delete a database, change its password, back it up with just a single click or check out the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you'd like to manage the content of a database directly, not via a script, you shall have two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available inside the CP, or using an application installed on your laptop or computer given that we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you will have to include your IP address via the web hosting account first as an added level of protection against unauthorized access to your information.
