If you use a script-driven application for your site, any information which both you and the website users produce will be stored within a database - an accumulation of data, that is structured in cells and tables for easier reading and writing. The latter is done by using special software called database management system and one of the most popular ones worldwide is MySQL. A lot of script applications are built to work with MySQL because it’s user-friendly, it works very well on a server and it's also universal as it can work with widely used web programming languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java) and on a number of server OS (Windows, Linux, UNIX). There are literally thousands of scripts which use MySQL, including quite popular ones for instance Moodle, Joomla and WordPress.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud plans allow you to host MySQL-driven Internet sites without any problem as our cloud platform has the latest management system version installed. You shall be able to set up, erase and control your databases with ease via our custom Hepsia CP. If you would like to migrate an Internet site from another website hosting company, you can use the phpMyAdmin tool that you can access from Hepsia, or you can connect remotely after you've enabled this function for your IP address. In the same way you could also change specific cells or tables inside any of your databases. Creating a backup is equally uncomplicated and requires just a click on the Backup button for a certain database. This function allows you to keep a copy of a site on your computer or to export the content of a certain database, modify it on your end using some software, and then import it back.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our semi-dedicated plans since we have the newest version set up on all web servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP, you'll be able to easily set up or remove a database, modify its password, back it up with a single mouse click or check the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you would like to manage the content of a database directly, not through a script, you'll have two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available inside the Control Panel, or using an application installed on your PC considering the fact that we support remote database access. For the latter option, you'll need to include your IP address from the web hosting account first as an additional level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
