MySQL is one of the most popular database admin systems on the market. A database is a collection of cells with data that are structured in tables and the administration system is the piece of software that links the information to a script app. For example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc inside a database and every time a site visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that ought to be displayed on a certain page. MySQL is very popular because of its great performance, convenience and the fact that it can operate with lots of popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth. All dynamic Internet sites which are developed with a script-driven application need some kind of database and some of the most popular ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.

Generating a backup is just as simple and takes simply a mouse click on the Backup button for a certain database. This function will allow you to keep a copy of a website on your personal computer or to export the content of a particular database, change it on your end using some software, and then import it back.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting as we have the newest version set up on all web servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you shall be able to easily create or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with a single click or check 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 shall have two options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available inside the CP, or using an application installed on your PC given that we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you will have to include your IP address through the hosting account first as an extra level of protection against unauthorized access to your information.
