All script applications like forums or online stores keep their data inside a database - a collection of cells and tables that contains all the Internet site info such as items, prices, comments, etc. Anytime you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it runs on a number of platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with numerous scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its amazing effectiveness even with big databases. Many widely used platforms including WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to keep their content.

You shall be able to modify the password, remove a database or enable remote access to it just as fast. For the latter option you can choose the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely to make sure that unauthorized people shall not be able to access your data. If you'd like to view the database content or edit any cell or table from the Control Panel, you can use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our semi-dedicated plans considering the fact that we have the most up-to-date version installed on all web servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to easily create or delete a database, change its password, back it up with one click or check out the hourly and daily access statistics for it.

For the aforementioned option, you will have to add your IP address through the hosting account first as an additional level of security against unauthorized access to your information.
