When you use a script-driven application for your Internet site, any info that both you and the site users produce will be stored inside a database - an accumulation of information, that is structured in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is carried out by using special software called database management system and one of the most popular ones worldwide is MySQL. A wide range of script apps are designed to work with MySQL since it’s easy to work with, it functions perfectly on a website hosting server and it is universal as it can work with popular web programming languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java) and on various hosting server OS (Linux, UNIX, Windows). There are thousands of scripts that use MySQL, including popular ones like WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Website Hosting

Our Linux shared website hosting packages will permit you to host MySQL-driven websites without any problem as our cloud platform has the latest management system version set up. You'll be able to set up, remove and manage your databases with ease using our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like to migrate a website from another website hosting provider, you should use the phpMyAdmin tool that you can access via Hepsia, or you can connect remotely right after you have allowed this feature for your IP address. In the same way you could also modify specific cells or tables within any of your databases. Setting up a backup is equally simple and requires just a mouse click on the Backup button for a certain database. This feature will permit you to keep a copy of a website on your computer or to export the content of a particular database, edit it on your end using some software, and then import it back.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting
