If you use a script-driven app for your website, any information that both you and the website users create shall be stored within a database - a collection of information, that's organized in cells and tables for easier reading and writing. The latter is done through special software referred to as database management system and one of the most well-known ones globally is MySQL. A large amount of script apps are designed to work with MySQL as it's simple to use, it functions really well on a web hosting server and it is universal as it can perform with famous web programming languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python) and on various server Operating Systems (UNIX, Linux, Windows). There are literally thousands of scripts which use MySQL, including really popular ones for example WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our semi-dedicated hosting service considering the fact that we have the newest version set up on all servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you will be able to quickly create or delete a database, change its password, back it up with just a single mouse click or examine the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you'd like to handle the content of a database directly, not via a script, you will have two options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available inside the CP, or using an app set up on your personal computer given that we support remote database access.
