All script apps such as forums or virtual stores save their information in a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains all of the site data such as items, prices, comments, and so on. Anytime you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed information, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it runs on a variety of platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a range of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its amazing functionality even with huge databases. Many popular platforms including Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to use script-driven platforms that require a MySQL database with each of the cloud hosting which we offer. You can easily create a completely new database from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the total number of databases you can have at a time depends on the package you choose. We also offer advanced options to control your databases, like a one-click backup and remote access. With the latter option you shall be able to employ software on your computer to connect to a database on our web servers and manage it. For easy administration from the Control Panel we offer the powerful phpMyAdmin tool, that will allow you to modify tables or cells and import or export entire databases using a web interface. If you use our 1-click script installer, our system will create a completely new database and connect it to the app you have chosen automatically, so all you'll need to do to get a script-driven site is to click on the Install button.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our semi-dedicated services since we have the most current version set up on all machines - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you shall be able to quickly set up or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with a single click or check the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you want to handle the content of a database directly, not through a script, you will have two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available in the CP, or using an app installed on your laptop or computer since we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you will have to add your IP address through the hosting account first as an extra level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
