When you use a script-driven app for your website, any data which both you and the site users generate will be stored inside a database - an accumulation of info, which is structured in cells and tables for simpler reading and writing. The latter is carried out by using special software referred to as database management system and one of the most widely used ones around the globe is MySQL. A large amount of script apps are built to work with MySQL because it’s easy to work with, it functions exceptionally well on a web hosting server and it's universal as it can function with widely used web programming languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java) and on a variety of web server OS (Windows, Linux, UNIX). There are thousands of scripts that use MySQL, including very popular ones like WordPress, Moodle and Joomla.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our Linux semi-dedicated packages as we have the latest version installed on all servers - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to swiftly create or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with just a single 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 two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available in the Control Panel, or using an app set up on your laptop or computer since we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you'll need to include your IP address via the hosting account first as an additional level of protection against unauthorized access to your information.
