All script apps like forums or online shops save their info inside a database - a group of cells and tables containing the site data including items, prices, comments, and so on. Anytime you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified info, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used because it functions on several platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a range of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its fantastic effectiveness even with huge databases. Many well-known platforms such as Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to store their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting
Starting or changing a MySQL database will be really easy with each one of our Linux shared plans. This can be accomplished through our feature-rich Hepsia CP in which you can create or erase a database, set up a backup copy with just one click or use the powerful phpMyAdmin software instrument so as to edit cells and tables or import an entire database if you are moving a script-driven website from another hosting provider. You can also enable remote access to any database inside your account and decide from what IP addresses the connection shall be established, as a way to ensure the protection of your info. If you decide to take advantage of any of the script platforms we offer with our script installer, you'll not need to do anything simply because our system will create a new database and link it to the website automatically. If you face any problems to manage your databases, you can examine our help articles and video tutorials or make contact with our technical support.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our semi-dedicated plans due to the fact that we have the most current version set up on all machines - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to easily set up or erase a database, change its password, back it up with a single click or check the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you want to handle the content of a database directly, not via a script, you will have two options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available inside the CP, or using an app set up on your computer considering the fact that we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you will have to add your IP address via the hosting account first as an extra level of safety against unauthorized access to your data.
