All script applications such as forums or virtual stores store their info in a database - a collection of cells and tables containing the site information such as items, prices, comments, and many others. Each time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary information, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and amongst the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it functions on a variety of platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its amazing functionality even with huge databases. A lot of well-known platforms like Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to keep their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Web Hosting
Our Linux cloud web hosting packages will allow you to host MySQL-driven Internet sites without any difficulty as our cloud platform has the latest management system version set up. You'll be able to create, remove and manage your databases easily through our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like to migrate an Internet site from another hosting provider, you can use the phpMyAdmin tool which you can access through Hepsia, or you can connect remotely right after you have enabled this feature for your IP address. In the same way you may also modify certain cells or tables inside any of your databases. Creating a backup is also painless and takes simply a click on the Backup button for a particular database. This function will permit you to keep a copy of an Internet site on your PC or to export the content of a given database, change it on your end using some software, and then import it back.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages as we have the most up-to-date version installed on all web servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP, you will be able to swiftly set up or remove a database, change its password, back it up with one click or check out the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you want to handle the content of a database directly, not through a script, you'll have 2 options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available inside the Control Panel, or using an application installed on your laptop or computer since we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you'll have to include your IP address through the hosting account first as an additional level of safety against unauthorized access to your information.
