MySQL is among the most popular database control systems available. A database is a set of cells with data which are organized in tables and the control system is the software that links the info to a script app. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth within a database and every time a website visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that needs to be accessible on a particular page. MySQL is very popular because of its excellent performance, ease of use and the fact that it can operate with many popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic Internet sites that are built with a script-driven application require some kind of database and a number of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our Linux semi-dedicated servers due to the fact that we have the most current version set up on all machines - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to easily create or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with one click or examine the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you would like to manage the content of a database directly, not via a script, you'll have 2 options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available in the Control Panel, or using an application installed on your laptop or computer considering the fact that we support remote database access. For the latter option, you'll have to add your IP address through the web hosting account first as an additional level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
