MySQL is among the most commonly used database admin systems in existence. A database is a set of cells with information which are organized in tables and the control system is the piece of software which links the information to a script application. For instance, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc in a database and each time a site visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which has to be displayed on a specific page. MySQL is very popular due to its great functionality, simplicity of use and the fact that it can function with a lot of popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic websites that are developed with a script-driven app require some form of database and some of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Web Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel included with our Linux cloud web hosting service will permit you to take care of all your MySQL databases with ease. It takes only a few mouse clicks to create a new database and with just one more click you may back it up if you want to have a copy before you update your website, for example. You shall be able to change the password, remove a database or allow remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you can opt for the IP addresses that'll be able to connect to the database remotely so as to ensure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your data. If you would like to view the database content or change any cell or table through the Control Panel, you may use phpMyAdmin, an efficient 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 that you have selected automatically.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our semi-dedicated hosting service due to the fact that we have the most up-to-date version set up on all web servers - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to easily set up or delete a database, change its password, back it up with a single click or check out the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you would like to handle the content of a database directly, not through a script, you'll have two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available inside the CP, or using an application installed on your computer as we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you will have to add your IP address through the web hosting account first as an added level of protection against unauthorized access to your information.
