MySQL is among the most popular database admin systems available. A database is a set of cells with info which are structured in tables and the control system is the piece of software which links the info to a script application. For example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so forth inside a database and each time a website visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which has to be displayed on a certain page. MySQL is quite popular due to its terrific functionality, simplicity and the fact that it can operate with lots of popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic sites that are built with a script-driven application need some type of database and some of the most popular ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our semi-dedicated hosting plans considering the fact that we have the latest version installed on all servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP, you shall be able to easily create or erase a database, modify its password, back it up with one click or examine the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you want to handle the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you will have 2 options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available inside the Control Panel, or using an app installed on your personal computer since we support remote database access. For the latter option, you'll have to add your IP address through the hosting account first as an extra level of safety against unauthorized access to your information.
