MySQL is among the most widespread database control systems out there. A database is a collection of cells with data that are arranged in tables and the management system is the software which links the information to a script app. As an illustration, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth in a database and each time a site visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which should be shown on a specific page. MySQL is quite popular due to its excellent performance, convenience and the fact that it can operate with numerous popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic Internet sites that are built with a script-driven application require some type of database and many of the most popular ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Web Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia CP included with our Linux shared web hosting will allow you to control all your MySQL databases with ease. It requires just a few mouse clicks to create a brand new database and with one more click you can back it up if you want to have a copy before you update your site, for instance. You shall be able to change the password, erase a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you could opt for the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely so as to ensure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your information. If you would like to view the database content or edit any cell or table through the CP, you can use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven applications will also be very easy as our script installer will create a database for the script you have selected automatically.
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 due to the fact that we have the most current version set up on all web servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP, you will be able to swiftly set up or erase a database, modify its password, back it up with a single mouse click or check the hourly and daily access statistics for it.

For the aforementioned option, you'll have to include your IP address through the web hosting account first as an added level of security against unauthorized access to your info.
