MySQL is among the most widespread database control systems available. A database is a collection of cells with data which are structured in tables and the management system is the piece of software which links the info to a script application. For example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so on inside a database and each time a website visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which needs to be shown on a specific page. MySQL is really popular because of its great functionality, ease of use and the fact that it can operate with many popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic Internet sites which are designed with a script-driven app need some type of database and a number of the most widely used ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting plans allow you to host MySQL-driven Internet sites without any issue as our cloud platform has the latest management system version installed. You'll be able to set up, remove and control your databases without difficulty using our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like to migrate an Internet site from another web hosting provider, you can use the phpMyAdmin tool which you can access through Hepsia, or you can connect remotely once you have allowed this function for your IP address. In the same way you could also modify specific cells or tables inside any of your databases. Setting up a backup is equally simple and takes just a mouse click on the Backup button for a particular database. This function will enable you to keep a copy of an Internet site on your PC or to export the content of a given database, modify it on your end using appropriate software, and then import it back.
