All script apps like forums or virtual shops store their data inside a database - a group of cells and tables that contains the site information such as items, prices, comments, and so on. Whenever you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified info, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used as it works on different platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its great effectiveness even with big databases. Many famous platforms including Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to keep their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting will permit you to host MySQL-driven Internet sites without any issue as our cloud platform has the latest management system version installed. You will be able to set up, erase and manage your databases easily through our custom Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like to migrate a site from another hosting provider, you may use the phpMyAdmin tool which you can access from Hepsia, or you can connect remotely once you have allowed this feature for your IP address. In the same way you can even change specific cells or tables within any of your databases. Generating a backup is equally painless and requires only a mouse click on the Backup button for a specific database. This feature will enable you to keep a copy of a site on your computer or to export the content of a certain database, edit it on your end using some software, and then import it back.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our semi-dedicated servers due to the fact that we have the latest version set up on all machines - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you'll be able to easily create or erase a database, change its password, back it up with one mouse click or examine the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you'd like to handle the content of a database directly, not through a script, you'll have two options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available inside the CP, or using an app installed on your computer as we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you'll have to add your IP address from the hosting account first as an additional level of security against unauthorized access to your information.
