MySQL is among the most popular database administration systems in existence. A database is a set of cells with information that are structured in tables and the management system is the software that links the data to a script application. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth inside a database and each time a website visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that has to be displayed on a certain page. MySQL is extremely popular because of its superb performance, simplicity and the fact that it can function with numerous popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic web sites that are designed with a script-driven application need some form of database and a lot of the most popular ones like Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.
MySQL 5 Databases in Hosting
Creating or editing a MySQL database will be very easy with each one of our Linux hosting
. This can be carried out using our feature-rich Hepsia CP in which you can set up or erase a database, set up a backup copy with just one click or use the highly efficient phpMyAdmin instrument so as to edit cells and tables or import a whole database if you are moving a script-driven website from another service provider. You may even enable remote access to any database in your account and choose from what IP addresses the connection shall be established, so as to ensure the safety of your information. If you choose to use any of the script platforms which we offer you with our script installer, you will not have to do anything as our system will set up a whole new database and link it to the website automatically. If you face any difficulties to control your databases, you can check our help articles and video tutorials or get hold of our technical support.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting service
given that we have the most current version set up on all servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you'll be able to swiftly create or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with a single mouse click or check the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you want to handle the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you will have two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available in the Control Panel, or using an app installed on your laptop or computer since we support remote database access. For the latter option, you'll need to add your IP address via the web hosting account first as an extra level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
