MySQL is among the most popular database admin systems on the market. A database is a set of cells with information which are arranged in tables and the control system is the software which links the information to a script application. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc in a database and each time a site visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that needs to be accessible on a particular page. MySQL is quite popular due to its superb functionality, ease of use and the fact that it can function with numerous popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic Internet sites which are designed with a script-driven app need some kind of database and many of the most widely used ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting since we have the most up-to-date version installed on all web servers - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll 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 stats for it. If you would like to handle the content of a database directly, not via a script, you shall have 2 options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available in the Control Panel, or using an application installed on your laptop or computer given that we support remote database access. For the latter option, you will need to include your IP address from the hosting account first as an additional level of protection against unauthorized access to your info.
