Through the Database Manager included in the Hosting Control Panel, it is also possible to build brand–new MySQL and PgSQL databases right away! Moreover, you’ll possess direct access to the administration area software tools (phpMyAdmin and phpPgAdmin, respectively), so you can efficiently edit the database you want.
A Convenient Interface
The best database management interface
Database management might sound like a difficult job to newbie website hosting users, but with Ripcom International’s Database Manager, it’s in fact quite simple! To set up a completely new database, you only need to provide your username and password. Database back–ups are simply a click away as well.People who wish to explore their databases and then update them should use the phpMyAdmin and phpPgAdmin tools.
Fast Database Backup
Back up your databases in a minute
We’ve developed the manual database back–up generation into a simple job. To do this: in the Database Manager, click the ’clock’ image beside the database that you would like to back up and after that wait around for a few seconds for the backup process to take place. With respect to the size of the database, the creation of any back–up file is going to take between a couple of seconds and a minute.
You can make as many copies per database as you desire. We haven’t fixed any limitations for the amount of databases you could back up either.
Essentially the most risk–free open source databases
Practically all of Ripcom International’s Linux hosting packages plans offer PgSQL support. While dropping behind MySQL with regard to reputation and employment, PgSQL databases are renowned for providing the maximum level of protection for your website content. That’s the basic reason why companies like Skype and Yahoo make use of PgSQL databases rather than MySQL.
In terms of database administration, PgSQL is as quick as MySQL.
The new face of MySQL
The MySQL databases on our web servers use the most current version of the InnoDB storage engine. InnoDB was designed to guarantee the optimum performance for websites that work with substantial amounts of data. It offers CPU performance that could not be matched up by other different disk–based relational database engines.
InnoDB is ACID–compliant and provides 100% transaction support, meaning it is possible to update/insert/create/alter/drop a couple of times for one "operation" of your web application. Also, it utilizes row–level locking and not MyISAM’s table–level locking, that raises multi–user concurrency and effectiveness.
Detailed Database Stats
Complete stats for all your databases
Keeping track of the load made by the databases within your busy website will help you stop any sort of overload issues that might slow it down and chase away website visitors. For this purpose, we have built in a in depth Database Stats tool in the Hosting Control Panel. There you can see in depth information about the inbound requests to your databases for each and every hour, day and month.
Depending on the amount of day–to–day and hourly queries, it will be straightforward to find out which databases are being used the most and then take procedures to optimize their load.
