All script applications including forums or online stores keep their info within a database - a set of cells and tables that contains the website data such as items, prices, comments, and so forth. Every time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required data, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used as it can run on different platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its amazing performance even with massive databases. A lot of widely used platforms such as WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to store their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Website Hosting

Our Linux shared website hosting packages will allow you to host MySQL-driven sites without any problem as our cloud platform has the latest management system version installed. You shall be able to set up, remove and manage your databases without trouble through our custom Hepsia Control Panel. If you want to migrate a website from another website hosting provider, you may use the phpMyAdmin tool which you can access via Hepsia, or you can connect remotely once you've allowed this function for your IP address. In the same way you can also modify certain cells or tables in any of your databases. Setting up a backup is just as simple and requires just a mouse click on the Backup button for a certain database. This function will enable you to keep a copy of a website on your personal computer or to export the content of a certain database, edit it on your end using appropriate software, and then import it back.
