MySQL is one of the most popular database administration systems available. A database is a set of cells with info that are organized in tables and the management system is the software that links the info to a script app. For example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc inside a database and every single time a website visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that should be displayed on a particular page. MySQL is extremely popular due to its excellent functionality, simplicity and the fact that it can function with a lot of popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic websites that are built with a script-driven application require some form of database and many of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting

Our Linux cloud services will enable you to host MySQL-driven websites without any difficulty as our cloud platform has the latest management system version installed. You'll be able to create, remove and manage your databases without difficulty using our custom-made Hepsia CP. If you wish to migrate a website from another web hosting provider, you may use the phpMyAdmin tool which 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 can also edit specific cells or tables inside any of your databases. Setting up a backup is also easy and requires only a mouse click on the Backup button for a particular database. This function will allow you to keep a copy of a website on your PC or to export the content of a particular database, modify it on your end using appropriate software, and then import it back.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services as we have the newest version set up on all web servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to easily set up or erase a database, change its password, back it up with one click or examine the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you want to handle the content of a database directly, not via a script, you'll have 2 options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available in the CP, or using an application set up on your computer given that we support remote database access. For the latter option, you'll need to add your IP address via the hosting account first as an added level of security against unauthorized access to your info.
