If you use a script-driven app for your website, any data that both you and the site users generate will be stored inside a database - a collection of data, that is organized in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is accomplished by using special software called database management system and one of the most popular ones world-wide is MySQL. A large amount of script apps are built to work with MySQL because it’s easy to use, it functions really well on a website hosting server and it's universal as it can function with widely used web programming languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python) and on various hosting server OS (Windows, UNIX, Linux). There are thousands of scripts that use MySQL, including extremely popular ones for example WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.

MySQL 5 Databases in Web Hosting

Creating or changing a MySQL database will be really easy with any of our web hosting. This can be done using our feature-rich Hepsia Control Panel through which you can set up or delete a database, create a backup copy with just one mouse click or take advantage of the highly efficient phpMyAdmin software instrument in order to edit cells and tables or import an entire database if you are moving a script-driven website from another web hosting provider. You can also enable remote access to any database inside your account and select from what IP addresses the connection will be established, as a way to guarantee the safety of your data. If you decide to take advantage of any of the script platforms that we offer you with our script installer, you'll not need to do anything because our system will set up a new database and link it to the site automatically. If you face any problems to control your databases, you should check our help articles and video tutorials or get hold of our tech support team.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our semi-dedicated hosting packages as we have the most up-to-date version set up on all servers - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to quickly set up or remove a database, change its password, back it up with a single click or check the hourly and daily access stats 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's available inside the CP, or using an application installed on your laptop or computer since we support remote database access. For the latter option, you will have to add your IP address via the web hosting account first as an additional level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
