MySQL 5 Databases
Find out what relational databases are and whether using MySQL databases can be beneficial for your websites and applications.
MySQL is one of the most widely used database admin systems out there. A database is a group of cells with information which are arranged in tables and the control system is the piece of software which links the data to a script app. As an illustration, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc in a database and each time a visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which should be displayed on a particular page. MySQL is very popular due to its terrific efficiency, convenience and the fact that it can function with lots of popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic sites which are developed with a script-driven application require some form of database and many of the most popular ones such as Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel offered with our cloud hosting
will allow you to take care of all your MySQL databases easily. It takes only a few clicks to create a new database and with only one more click you may back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your site, for example. You'll be able to change the password, erase a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you could pick the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely so as to make sure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your info. If you would like to see the database content or change any cell or table through the CP, you should use phpMyAdmin, an effective web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven apps will also be easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script which you have chosen automatically.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our Linux semi-dedicated servers
as we have the most up-to-date version installed on all machines - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to quickly set up or erase a database, change its password, back it up with a single mouse click or check out the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you want to manage the content of a database directly, not via a script, you will have two options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available inside the Control Panel, or using an application set up on your personal computer since we support remote database access. For the latter option, you'll need to add your IP address through the hosting account first as an additional level of safety against unauthorized access to your information.
