MySQL is one of the most popular database control systems on the market. A database is a group of cells with information that are structured in tables and the control system is the piece of software which links the info to a script application. As an example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth within a database and every single time a site visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which has to be shown on a specific page. MySQL is very popular due to its great functionality, simplicity and the fact that it can function with a lot of popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic Internet sites which are developed with a script-driven app need some kind of database and some of the most widely used ones including Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our semi-dedicated servers
as we have the most current version installed on all web servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to quickly set up or remove a database, modify its password, back it up with one click or examine the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you'd like to manage the content of a database directly, not via a script, you will have two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available in the CP, or using an application installed on your computer as we support remote database access. For the latter option, you'll need to include your IP address from the hosting account first as an added level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
