All script applications such as forums or online stores store their information inside a database - a collection of cells and tables that contains all the site info including items, prices, comments, and so forth. Whenever you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed info, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it functions on different platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a range of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its wonderful effectiveness even with large databases. Numerous famous platforms including WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to store their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Website Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel included with our cloud website hosting plans will enable you to take care of all your MySQL databases easily. It takes only a few mouse clicks to set up a brand new database and with just one more click you may back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your website, for example. You'll be able to modify the password, remove a database or enable remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you may pick the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely to ensure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your information. If you wish to see the database content or edit any cell or table via the Control Panel, you should use phpMyAdmin, an effective web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven applications will also be very easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script you have picked automatically.
