All script applications like forums or virtual shops keep their information within a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains all the Internet site info such as items, prices, comments, and so on. Each time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it can run on several platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a range of scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its excellent effectiveness even with large databases. A lot of popular platforms like WordPress or Joomla™ use MySQL databases to keep their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Website Hosting

We also provide you with advanced options to manage your databases, including a one-click backup and remote accessibility. With the latter option you shall be able to employ software on your PC to connect to a database on our servers and manage it. For convenient administration from the CP we provide you with the powerful phpMyAdmin tool, that will permit you to modify cells or tables and import or export entire databases through a web interface. If you use our 1-click script installer, our system shall create a whole new database and link it to the app you have picked automatically, so all you'll have to do to get a script-driven Internet site shall be to click on the Install button.
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
considering the fact that we have the most up-to-date version installed on all machines - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP, you shall be able to easily set up or remove a database, change its password, back it up with just a single mouse click or check the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you would like to manage the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you shall have two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is 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 via the web hosting account first as an extra level of safety against unauthorized access to your information.
