MySQL is one of the most widely used database administration systems out there. A database is a collection of cells with information which are organized in tables and the management system is the software that links the information to a script application. For example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc in a database and every single time a website visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that has to be displayed on a certain page. MySQL is extremely popular because of its superb efficiency, simplicity of use and the fact that it can operate with many popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic web sites which are built with a script-driven app need some kind of database and a lot of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Web Hosting

You shall be able to use script-driven platforms which require a MySQL database with each one of the Linux web hosting we offer you. You could create a new database from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the amount of databases that you can have at one time is determined by the package you choose.

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 considering the fact that we have the latest version set up on all web servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to swiftly create or remove a database, change its password, back it up with one mouse click or check the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you'd like to handle the content of a database directly, not via a script, you will have 2 options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available in the Control Panel, or using an app set up on your personal computer considering the fact that we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you'll need to add your IP address via the web hosting account first as an extra level of safety against unauthorized access to your data.
