When you use a script-driven app for your site, any data that both you and the website users create shall be stored within a database - a collection of info, which is structured in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is done through special software referred to as database management system and one of the most popular ones worldwide is MySQL. A lot of script apps are created to work with MySQL as it is easy to work with, it functions very well on a hosting server and it's universal as it can work with famous web programming languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java) and on numerous server OS (Windows, UNIX, Linux). There are thousands of scripts that use MySQL, including really popular ones like Moodle, Joomla and WordPress.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting
Setting up or editing a MySQL database is going to be very easy with each one of our Linux cloud hosting packages. That can be performed via our feature-rich Hepsia CP in which you can create or remove a database, create a backup with only one click or use the efficient phpMyAdmin tool so as to modify cells and tables or import a whole database if you are moving a script-driven Internet site from another hosting company. You could also enable remote access to any database in your account and decide from what IP addresses the connection will be established, so that you can guarantee the protection of your data. Should you decide to use any of the script platforms which we offer you with our script installer, you'll not have to do anything as our system will create a whole new database and link it to the Internet site automatically. If you encounter any difficulties to control your databases, you can check our help articles and video tutorials or make contact with our tech support.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting since we have the most current version set up on all web servers - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to quickly create or erase a database, modify its password, back it up with one click or check the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you want to handle the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you'll have two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available in the Control Panel, or using an application installed on your computer as we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you will have to include your IP address from the web hosting account first as an added level of security against unauthorized access to your information.
