MySQL 5 Databases
Find out what relational databases are and if using MySQL databases can be beneficial for your websites and applications.
MySQL is among the most commonly used database management systems available. A database is a collection of cells with info that are arranged in tables and the management system is the piece of software that links the information to a script application. For example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so forth within a database and every time a website visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that ought to be displayed on a certain page. MySQL is very popular due to its excellent efficiency, simplicity of use and the fact that it can function with a lot of popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic websites that are developed with a script-driven app need some form of database and a lot of the most popular ones such as Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia CP that comes with our cloud hosting plans
will allow you to take care of all your MySQL databases effortlessly. It takes just a few mouse clicks to create a completely new database and with only one more click you can back it up if you'd like to have a copy before you update your Internet site, for instance. You shall be able to modify the password, erase a database or enable remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you could opt for the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely to make sure that unauthorized people shall not be able to access your information. If you wish to see the database content or edit any cell or table through the CP, you can use phpMyAdmin, a powerful web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven apps will also be easy as our script installer will create a database for the script you have picked out automatically.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our semi-dedicated hosting plans
as we have the newest version set up on all machines - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to quickly create or remove a database, modify its password, back it up with a single click or examine the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you would like to manage the content of a database directly, not via a script, you shall have two options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available inside the CP, or using an application set up on your laptop or computer since we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you will need to include your IP address through the hosting account first as an extra level of safety against unauthorized access to your information.
