All script apps like forums or e-stores store their data in a database - a group of cells and tables which contains all the website info including items, prices, comments, and so forth. When you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it functions on a number of platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a range of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its amazing functionality even with large databases. A lot of widely used platforms including Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to save their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

MySQL 5 is one of the database management systems provided with our Linux semi-dedicated services and you will be able to set up and employ any script app that requires a MySQL database without any difficulty. Our sophisticated Hepsia CP gives you complete control over any database which you set up - you may modify its password with a mouse click, export or import content and also access it remotely via an app installed on your computer or laptop. To make certain that no one else will be able to use the latter option, you will need to add your IP address in the Control Panel just before you're able to access the database. If you prefer a web interface to manage a particular database, Hepsia will give you access to the feature-rich phpMyAdmin tool via which you can edit certain cells and tables or run MySQL commands through your browser.
