When you use a script-driven application for your Internet site, any info that both you and the website users create will be stored inside a database - an accumulation of data, which is structured in cells and tables for simpler reading and writing. The latter is accomplished by using special software referred to as database management system and one of the most well-known ones world-wide is MySQL. A large amount of script applications are built to work with MySQL as it is convenient to use, it works really well on a web server and it is universal as it can work with famous web programming languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP) and on several server OS (Windows, UNIX, Linux). There are huge amounts of scripts that use MySQL, including really popular ones for example WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our Linux cloud hosting will allow you to take care of all your MySQL databases effortlessly. It requires just a couple of clicks to set up a brand new database and with only one more click you may back it up if you want to have a copy before you update your web site, for instance. You'll be able to modify the password, remove a database or enable remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you'll be able to opt for the IP addresses that'll be able to connect to the database remotely to make sure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your info. If you'd like to view the database content or modify any cell or table from the CP, you may use phpMyAdmin, a powerful web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven apps will also be very easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script that you have chosen automatically.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our Linux semi-dedicated servers since we have the most current version installed on all web servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to swiftly create or erase a database, change its password, back it up with a single mouse click or check the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you'd like to manage the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you'll have two options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available in the Control Panel, or using an application installed on your computer given that we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you will need to include your IP address from the web hosting account first as an added level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
