MySQL is one of the most widely used database management systems in existence. A database is a group of cells with info which are structured in tables and the management system is the piece of software that links the data to a script app. As an example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth in a database and each time a website visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that ought to be accessible on a particular page. MySQL is extremely popular due to its superb efficiency, convenience and the fact that it can operate with numerous popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic Internet sites which are built with a script-driven application require some form of database and a lot of the most widely used ones such as Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.

For easy administration from the CP we provide you with the powerful phpMyAdmin tool, which will enable you to modify tables or cells and import or export whole databases using a web interface. If you employ our 1-click script installer, our system will create a new database and link it to the application you have chosen automatically, so all you'll have to do to get a script-driven website is to click on the Install button.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our Linux semi-dedicated servers
as we have the newest version installed on all servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP, you'll be able to swiftly set up or erase a database, change its password, back it up with a single mouse click or check out 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 installed on your computer considering the fact that we support remote database access.
