MySQL is among the most commonly used database administration systems available. A database is a set of cells with info which are structured in tables and the administration system is the software that links the data to a script application. As an illustration, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc in a database and every single time a visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which should be shown on a particular page. MySQL is extremely popular due to its great efficiency, simplicity and the fact that it can operate with a lot of popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic web sites that are built with a script-driven app need some kind of database and some of the most popular ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Web Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia CP included with our Linux cloud web hosting services will permit you to take care of all your MySQL databases with ease. It requires just a couple of mouse clicks to create a brand new database and with only one more click you could back it up if you'd like to have a copy before you update your web site, for example. You shall be able to modify the password, erase a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you'll be able to pick the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely to make sure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your information. If you wish to see the database content or modify any cell or table using the Control Panel, you may use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven apps will also be easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script that you have picked automatically.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our semi-dedicated hosting since we have the newest version set up on all web servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to easily set up or delete a database, change its password, back it up with a single mouse click or examine 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 employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available inside the CP, or using an app installed on your PC since we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you'll have to include your IP address through the web hosting account first as an extra level of security against unauthorized access to your data.
