MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our semi-dedicated servers as we have the newest version set up on all machines - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to quickly create or erase a database, change its password, back it up with a single mouse click or check the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you'd like to handle the content of a database directly, not through a script, you'll have two options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available in the CP, or using an app set up on your personal computer since we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you will need to add your IP address through the web hosting account first as an added level of security against unauthorized access to your information.
