All script apps like forums or virtual stores keep their info within a database - a set of cells and tables that contains all of the site information including items, prices, comments, etc. Whenever you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, then shows it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used as it runs on a variety of platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its great performance even with huge databases. Lots of popular platforms such as Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to save their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages considering the fact that we have the most current version set up on all machines - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to quickly set up or delete a database, change its password, back it up with a single click or examine the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you would like to manage the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you'll have 2 options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available in the CP, or using an app set up on your laptop or computer as we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you'll need to include your IP address through the hosting account first as an extra level of security against unauthorized access to your information.
