MySQL is among the most commonly used database control systems in existence. A database is a collection of cells with information that are organized in tables and the control system is the software which links the data to a script app. For example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so forth in a database and each time a visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that should be accessible on a certain page. MySQL is very popular due to its superb functionality, convenience and the fact that it can operate with numerous popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth. All dynamic web sites which are built with a script-driven application require some form of database and some of the most popular ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.
MySQL 5 Databases in Website Hosting

You shall be able to set up, remove and manage your databases with ease via our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel.

Generating a backup is just as painless and requires just a mouse click on the Backup button for a particular database. This function will enable you to keep a copy of an Internet site on your PC or to export the content of a certain database, modify it on your end using appropriate software, and then import it back.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting due to the fact that we have the latest version set up on all machines - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP, you shall be able to swiftly set up or remove a database, modify its password, back it up with a single click or check out the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you'd like to manage the content of a database directly, not via a script, you shall have 2 options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available in the Control Panel, or using an app installed on your computer given that we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you'll have to include your IP address through the hosting account first as an added level of protection against unauthorized access to your information.
