All script apps such as forums or web stores keep their data in a database - a group of cells and tables containing the Internet site info such as items, prices, comments, and many others. Each time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary info, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and among the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it operates on different platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its wonderful performance even with huge databases. A lot of famous platforms including WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to save their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Web Hosting

Our Linux shared web hosting will allow you to host MySQL-driven websites without any problem as our cloud platform has the latest management system version installed. You'll be able to create, delete and manage your databases without trouble through our custom Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like to migrate an Internet site from another hosting provider, you should use the phpMyAdmin tool which you may access via Hepsia, or you can connect remotely right after you've permitted this feature for your IP address. In the same way you can also edit certain cells or tables within any of your databases. Creating a backup is also easy and requires simply 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 personal computer or to export the content of a particular database, edit it on your end using appropriate software, and then import it back.
