If you use a script-driven application for your website, any information that both you and the website users produce will be stored inside a database - a collection of information, that's structured in cells and tables for simpler reading and writing. The latter is done by using special software referred to as database management system and one of the most famous ones world-wide is MySQL. A large amount of script applications are built to work with MySQL as it is easy to use, it functions exceptionally well on a web hosting server and it is universal as it can perform with common web programming languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java) and on various server OS (Windows, UNIX, Linux). There are thousands of scripts which use MySQL, including quite popular ones for instance Moodle, Joomla and WordPress.

MySQL 5 Databases in Web Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel included with our Linux web hosting packages will allow you to manage all your MySQL databases without difficulty. It requires only a couple of mouse clicks to set up a completely 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 site, for example. You will be able to modify the password, remove a database or allow remote access to it just as fast. For the latter option you can opt for the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely so as to make sure that unauthorized people shall not be able to access your info. If you'd like to see the database content or modify any cell or table through the CP, you should use phpMyAdmin, an efficient 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 out automatically.
