All script apps including forums or web shops save their data in a database - a group of cells and tables containing all the Internet site information including items, prices, comments, and many others. Every time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary info, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used as it works on several platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a range of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its wonderful performance even with large databases. Many well-known platforms including Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to save their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Web Hosting
You will be able to use script-driven platforms that require a MySQL database with each of the Linux cloud web hosting packages that we offer. You can set up a whole new database via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the total number of databases you can have simultaneously is determined by the package which you opt for. We also offer you advanced options to handle your databases, such as a one-click backup and remote accessibility. With the latter option you'll be able to use software on your computer to connect to a database on our servers and manage it. For simple management via the Control Panel we provide you with the efficient phpMyAdmin software tool, that will enable you to change tables or cells and import or export whole databases via a web interface. If you take advantage of our 1-click script installer, our system will create a whole new database and connect it to the application you have picked automatically, so all you will need to do to get a script-driven Internet site is to click on the Install button.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our semi-dedicated hosting given that we have the newest version installed on all web servers - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP, you shall be able to quickly create or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with one 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 via a script, you'll have two options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available in the CP, or using an app set up on your personal computer considering the fact that we support remote database access. For the latter option, you'll have to add your IP address via the hosting account first as an additional level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
