MySQL is one of the most popular database administration systems on the market. A database is a collection of cells with data which are structured in tables and the control system is the software that links the data to a script app. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc in a database and every time a website visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that needs to be displayed on a certain page. MySQL is extremely popular due to its great performance, simplicity of use and the fact that it can operate with many popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic websites which are developed with a script-driven application require some kind of database and some of the most popular ones such as Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.

Our web hosting service
will allow you to host MySQL-driven Internet sites without problems as our cloud platform has the latest management system version set up. You'll be able to create, remove and manage your databases effortlessly through our custom Hepsia CP. If you want to migrate a website from another host company, you can use the phpMyAdmin tool which you could access via Hepsia, or you can connect remotely right after you have permitted this feature for your IP address. In the same way you could also edit certain cells or tables within any of your databases. Setting up a backup is equally uncomplicated and requires simply a mouse click on the Backup button for a certain database. This feature will permit you to keep a copy of an Internet site on your personal computer or to export the content of a certain database, edit it on your end using some software, and then import it back.

considering the fact that we have the most up-to-date version set up on all web servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to easily create or erase a database, modify its password, back it up with just a single mouse click or check out the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you'd like to manage 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's available in the Control Panel, or using an app set up on your personal computer considering the fact that we support remote database access. For the latter option, you'll need to include your IP address through the hosting account first as an extra level of safety against unauthorized access to your data.
