All script applications including forums or virtual stores save their info within a database - a set of cells and tables which contains all the Internet site information like items, prices, comments, and many others. When you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it works on different platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a range of scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its wonderful effectiveness even with huge databases. Many famous platforms like Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to save their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel offered with our hosting plans will allow you to manage all your MySQL databases easily. It takes only a couple of mouse clicks to set up a completely new database and with one more click you can back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your web site, for instance. You shall be able to change the password, remove a database or permit remote access to it just as fast. For the latter option you may pick the IP addresses that'll be able to connect to the database remotely in order to ensure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your information. If you would like to view the database content or edit any cell or table via the Control Panel, you may use phpMyAdmin, a powerful web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven apps will also be easy as our script installer will create a database for the script which you have picked automatically.
