All script applications like forums or web shops store their information within a database - a group of cells and tables that contains all of the Internet site info like items, prices, comments, etc. Each time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed data, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used as it runs on different platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its wonderful efficiency even with huge databases. Lots of popular platforms such as Joomla™ or WordPress use MySQL databases to save their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Website Hosting

that we offer you. You can easily set up a new database through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the total number of databases which you can have simultaneously will depend on the package you select. We also provide you with advanced options to handle your databases, including a one-click backup and remote access. With the latter option you shall be able to employ software on your computer to connect to a database on our servers and manage it. For simple administration from the Control Panel we provide you with the efficient phpMyAdmin software tool, that will enable you to change tables or cells and import or export entire databases using a web interface. If you use our 1-click script installer, our system will create a whole new database and link it to the app you have chosen automatically, so all you'll have to do to get a script-driven website will be to click on the Install button.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

Via our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you shall be able to quickly set up or erase a database, modify its password, back it up with one click or check the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you'd like to manage the content of a database directly, not through a script, you will have 2 options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available inside the Control Panel, or using an application installed on your computer given that we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you'll need to include your IP address from the web hosting account first as an extra level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
