MySQL is one of the most widely used database administration systems out there. A database is a set of cells with info which are organized in tables and the control system is the software which links the information to a script app. As an example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc inside a database and each time a site visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that needs to be accessible on a specific page. MySQL is extremely popular because of its excellent efficiency, convenience and the fact that it can operate with many popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic Internet sites which are developed with a script-driven application need some form of database and many of the most popular ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our Linux semi-dedicated servers since we have the latest version installed on all machines - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP, you shall be able to swiftly set up or erase a database, modify its password, back it up with a single mouse click or examine the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you would like to handle the content of a database directly, not via a script, you will have 2 options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available in the Control Panel, or using an app set up on your computer given that we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you will have to add your IP address through the web hosting account first as an added level of security against unauthorized access to your information.
