All script applications including forums or web stores keep their information inside a database - a set of cells and tables that contains the site information including items, prices, comments, and many others. Anytime you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required info, then shows it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and among the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it can run on a number of platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a range of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its wonderful effectiveness even with huge databases. Lots of widely used platforms such as Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to keep their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting due to the fact that we have the latest version installed on all web servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to quickly create or erase a database, modify its password, back it up with just a single click or check out the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you'd like to manage the content of a database directly, not via a script, you'll have two options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available in the Control Panel, or using an app set up on your personal computer given that we support remote database access. For the latter option, you'll need to add your IP address from the hosting account first as an additional level of protection against unauthorized access to your information.
