All script apps such as forums or web shops store their data in a database - a group of cells and tables that contains all of the site information such as items, prices, comments, and so on. Anytime you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed data, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and among the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used as it runs on several platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its fantastic functionality even with huge databases. Many well-known platforms like Joomla™ or WordPress work with MySQL databases to store their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Website Hosting
Our website hosting
will permit you to host MySQL-driven Internet sites without any issue as our cloud platform has the latest management system version installed. You shall be able to set up, erase and manage your databases without difficulty through our custom Hepsia CP. If you wish to migrate an Internet site from another web hosting company, you can use the phpMyAdmin tool which you may access via Hepsia, or you can connect remotely once you have enabled this function for your IP address. In the same way you could also change specific cells or tables within any of your databases. Creating a backup is also easy and takes only a mouse click on the Backup button for a specific database. This function will permit you to keep a copy of a website on your computer or to export the content of a certain database, modify 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 each of our semi-dedicated servers
as we have the newest version installed on all servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP, you'll be able to swiftly create or erase a database, change its password, back it up with just a single mouse click or check the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you'd like to handle the content of a database directly, not via a script, you'll have 2 options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available inside the CP, or using an app installed on your personal computer given that we support remote database access. For the latter option, you'll need to include your IP address via the hosting account first as an extra level of safety against unauthorized access to your data.
