All script apps like forums or e-stores store their data within a database - a group of cells and tables that contains all of the site information including items, prices, comments, and so on. Whenever you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required info, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it functions on a number of platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its fantastic efficiency even with huge databases. A lot of well-known platforms including WordPress or Joomla™ employ MySQL databases to keep their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting

Through our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you will be able to easily create or remove a database, modify its password, back it up with one 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 shall have two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available in the CP, or using an app set up on your laptop or computer given that we support remote database access.
