MySQL Hosting

MySQL is the world’s most popular Open Source Database, designed for speed, power and precision in mission critical, heavy load use. While it does not have a graphical user interface (GUI) like FileMaker, MySQL is magnitudes faster than FileMaker in back-end performance – allowing for more intensive programming functionality.

We offer MySQL 5.5, 5, 4.1, 4.0 and 3 versions, all at the same price points.

Point In Space specializes in MySQL database integration using any combination of the following technologies simultaneously:

  • PHP (versions 5 and 4 available) – A widely-used general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for web development and can be embedded into HTML. See http://www.php.net/ for details.
  • Lasso Professional 8.5 – A tag-based programming language that can be used to incorporate MySQL database information into your web pages.
  • PERL – A stable, cross platform programming language. It is used for mission critical projects in the public and private sectors, and is widely used to program web applications of all needs. See http://www.perl.org/ for details.
  • Python – A dynamic object-oriented programming language that can be used for many kinds of software development. See http://www.python.org/ for details.

We provide phpMyAdmin on MySQL accounts, allowing you to edit database schema and data, and backup and restore your database files.

We backup ALL MySQL database files incrementally daily. Backups are kept for one week back, and we can pull a file from anywhere within this time frame if necessary. We also keep running binary update logs, allowing for recovery of database data since the last incremental backup.
