All script apps such as forums or online shops store their info in a database - a group of cells and tables containing the site info including items, prices, comments, and so on. Anytime you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed information, then shows it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used as it can run on a variety of platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its amazing efficiency even with large databases. Many widely used platforms like WordPress or Joomla™ employ MySQL databases to store their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Web Hosting
Our Linux cloud web hosting
will allow you to host MySQL-driven websites without problems as our cloud platform has the latest management system version set up. You'll be able to set up, remove and control your databases without trouble through our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel. If you want to migrate a site from another hosting provider, you can use the phpMyAdmin tool which you could access through Hepsia, or you can connect remotely right after you have allowed this function for your IP address. In the same way you can also change specific cells or tables inside any of your databases. Generating a backup is just as simple and takes simply a click on the Backup button for a particular database. This feature allows you to keep a copy of a website on your personal computer or to export the content of a particular database, edit it on your end using appropriate software, and then import it back.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Every semi-dedicated server
which we provide comes with the latest version of MySQL pre-installed, so that you can run any script app that you'd like. If you use our 1-click installer, you can create an application with a couple of mouse clicks and our instrument will create a whole new database automatically. If you want to set up a script yourself, you will be able to create a MySQL database easily, choosing its username and password. For your convenience, we've also added quick-access buttons to generate a backup or permit remote access to each of your databases. More advanced users can easily log in to the effective phpMyAdmin instrument and edit specific cells or entire tables by hand via a web interface. Inside the Databases section of the Hepsia website hosting CP you will also find hourly and day-to-day statistics for each database you have set up inside the account.
