All script applications like forums or virtual shops store their data inside a database - a group of cells and tables which contains the site data including items, prices, comments, and so on. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed information, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used as it runs on several platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a range of scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its amazing functionality even with massive databases. Numerous famous platforms like Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to save their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting
You shall be able to use script-driven platforms that require a MySQL database with each one of the shared plans which we offer. You can set up a new database from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the amount of databases that you can have at a time will depend on the package which you opt for. We also offer you advanced options to manage your databases, like a one-click backup and remote accessibility. With the latter option you'll be able to use software on your computer to connect to a database on our servers and manage it. For convenient administration via the CP we provide you with the effective phpMyAdmin software tool, that will permit you to change tables or cells and import or export whole databases using a web interface.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our semi-dedicated hosting plans since we have the most up-to-date version installed on all machines - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you will be able to swiftly set up or erase a database, modify its password, back it up with one mouse click or check the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you'd like to manage the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you'll have 2 options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available inside the Control Panel, or using an app set up on your PC since we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you'll need to add your IP address from the hosting account first as an additional level of safety against unauthorized access to your data.
