All script applications including forums or online stores store their data within a database - a set of cells and tables which contains all of the site info including items, prices, comments, and so forth. Whenever you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified data, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it functions on several platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its fantastic functionality even with huge databases. Numerous well-known platforms such as Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to keep their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Website Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our Linux cloud website hosting plans will enable you to take care of all your MySQL databases effortlessly. It takes only a couple of 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 web site, for example. You'll be able to change the password, remove a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you may choose the IP addresses that'll be able to connect to the database remotely in order to ensure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your information. If you'd like to see the database content or edit any cell or table using the CP, you may use phpMyAdmin, an excellent 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 which you have chosen automatically.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans offer MySQL 5 support and the administration of your databases will be easy.

The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will also offer you access to more advanced features like a one-click backup and remote access. For the latter option, you could add only the IP address of your computer to make sure that nobody else will be able to access your information. Thus, you can handle the content of any database in the account via any application on your computer system. If you'd prefer to do this online, you can use the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available via Hepsia. You'll also be able to observe hourly and day-to-day MySQL statistics, that will show you how your websites perform and if any one of them should be optimized.
