MySQL 5 Databases
Why does almost every website today use MySQL databases? How do the latter work?
MySQL is one of the most commonly used database management systems out there. A database is a collection of cells with data that are organized in tables and the control system is the piece of software that links the information to a script application. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth within a database and every time a visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which needs to be displayed on a particular page. MySQL is quite popular due to its great functionality, simplicity of use and the fact that it can work with lots of popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic sites that are designed with a script-driven application require some type of database and a number of the most widely used ones including Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Web Hosting
Our Linux shared web hosting services
allow you to host MySQL-driven Internet sites without any issue as our cloud platform has the latest management system version set up. You'll be able to set up, delete and control your databases without trouble through our custom-made Hepsia CP. If you'd like to migrate a website from another web hosting provider, you can use the phpMyAdmin tool which you could access through Hepsia, or you can connect remotely right after you've allowed this feature for your IP address. In the same way you could also modify specific cells or tables in any of your databases. Generating a backup is equally simple and requires only a mouse click on the Backup button for a certain database. This feature will allow you to keep a copy of an Internet site on your personal computer or to export the content of a certain database, modify it on your end using appropriate software, and then import it back.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our semi-dedicated hosting services
since we have the most up-to-date version installed on all servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you'll be able to easily set up or erase a database, change 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 shall have two options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available in the CP, or using an application set up on your computer considering the fact that we support remote database access. For the latter option, you will have to include your IP address through the web hosting account first as an extra level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
