All script apps like forums or e-shops store their information within a database - a set of cells and tables that contains all the website info including items, prices, comments, and so forth. Whenever you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified info, then shows it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and amongst the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it runs on different platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its great performance even with large databases. Lots of well-known platforms like Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to store their content.

For convenient management via the CP we offer the efficient phpMyAdmin tool, which will enable you to edit tables or cells and import or export whole databases using a web interface. If you take advantage of our 1-click script installer, our system will create a completely new database and connect it to the application you have picked automatically, so all you'll need to do to get a script-driven Internet site shall be to click on the Install button.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Using our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to easily create or delete a database, change its password, back it up with one click or check 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 two options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available inside the CP, or using an application installed on your laptop or computer as we support remote database access. For the latter option, you will have to add your IP address via the hosting account first as an added level of safety against unauthorized access to your info.
