All script applications such as forums or virtual shops store their information in a database - a group of cells and tables which contains all of the website info including items, prices, comments, etc. Each time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed info, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used as it runs on a number of platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its excellent functionality even with big databases. A lot of widely used platforms such as Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to save their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our semi-dedicated plans due to the fact that we have the most current version set up on all servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP, you will be able to swiftly create or remove a database, change its password, back it up with one mouse click or check the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you want to handle the content of a database directly, not through a script, you will have 2 options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available inside the Control Panel, or using an application set up on your personal computer since we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you'll need to add your IP address through the hosting account first as an added level of protection against unauthorized access to your info.
