MySQL 5 Databases
Find out what relational databases are and whether using MySQL databases can be beneficial for your sites and apps.
All script apps like forums or e-stores store their info in a database - a collection of cells and tables that contains all the website data including items, prices, comments, and so forth. Every time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary information, then shows it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it works on a variety of platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its great efficiency even with huge databases. Lots of well-known platforms such as Joomla™ or WordPress work with MySQL databases to store their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Hosting
Creating or editing a MySQL database shall be very simple with each of our hosting
. That can be accomplished using our feature-rich Hepsia CP through which you can create or delete a database, create a backup with just a single mouse click or take advantage of the highly efficient phpMyAdmin software instrument so as to edit cells and tables or import a whole database if you are moving a script-driven site from another hosting provider. You may also enable remote access to any database in your account and choose from what IP addresses the connection will be established, in order to ensure the protection of your data. Should you decide to employ any of the script platforms we provide with our script installer, you'll not have to do anything as our system will set up a new database and link it to the site automatically. If you experience any issues to manage your databases, you can check our help articles and instructional videos or communicate with our tech support.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

Via our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to quickly set up or remove a database, modify its password, back it up with one mouse click or examine the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you'd like to handle the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you'll have 2 options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available in the CP, or using an application set up on your PC since we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you'll have to add your IP address via the hosting account first as an additional level of safety against unauthorized access to your info.
