All script applications such as forums or web stores keep their data inside a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains the site information including items, prices, comments, and so forth. Anytime you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified data, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and amongst the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it can run on a variety of platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its great performance even with big databases. Lots of popular platforms like Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to keep their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Web Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia CP offered with our Linux web hosting will enable you to manage all your MySQL databases with ease. It takes just a few clicks to create a brand new database and with only one more click you can back it up if you want to have a copy before you update your web site, for example. You will be able to change the password, remove a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you could choose the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely in order to ensure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your data. If you wish to view the database content or change any cell or table from the CP, you should use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven applications will also be quite simple as our script installer will create a database for the script that you have picked automatically.
