All script apps like forums or web shops keep their information in a database - a group of cells and tables containing the Internet site info such as items, prices, comments, and so on. Whenever you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified data, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and among the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used as it can run on a number of platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its wonderful efficiency even with big databases. A lot of widely used platforms like Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to keep their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting plans will permit you to host MySQL-driven sites without any difficulty as our cloud platform has the latest management system version installed. You will be able to create, erase and manage your databases with ease through our custom Hepsia Control Panel. If you want to migrate a website from another web hosting provider, you should use the phpMyAdmin tool which you could access via Hepsia, or you can connect remotely after you have enabled this feature for your IP address. In the same way you could also modify certain cells or tables in any of your databases. Creating a backup is just as easy and requires simply a mouse click on the Backup button for a certain database. This function will allow you to keep a copy of a site on your personal computer or to export the content of a particular database, edit it on your end using some software, and then import it back.
