MySQL is one of the most popular database management systems in existence. A database is a set of cells with data which are organized in tables and the management system is the piece of software which links the info to a script application. As an illustration, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth inside a database and each time a site 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 because of its excellent performance, simplicity and the fact that it can function with lots of popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic Internet sites that are built with a script-driven application require some form of database and a number of the most widely used ones like Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel offered with our Linux cloud hosting packages
allows you to manage all your MySQL databases without difficulty. It requires just a few clicks to create a new database and with only one more click you could back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your web site, for instance. You will be able to modify the password, delete a database or permit remote access to it just as fast. For the latter option you may choose the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely in order to ensure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your information. If you want to see the database content or change any cell or table through the CP, you should use phpMyAdmin, a powerful web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven apps will also be quite simple as our script installer will create a database for the script which you have chosen automatically.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
since we have the most current version set up on all web servers - 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 one mouse click or check out the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you want to handle the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you shall have 2 options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available inside the Control Panel, or using an app installed on your PC as we support remote database access. For the latter option, you'll have to add your IP address from the hosting account first as an extra level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
