All script applications such as forums or online shops store their data inside a database - a group of cells and tables that contains the site data including items, prices, comments, and so on. When you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary info, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it can run on a variety of platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a range of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its wonderful efficiency even with huge databases. A lot of popular platforms like Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to store their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel offered with our Linux shared hosting will allow you to take care of all your MySQL databases easily. It takes just a few mouse clicks to create a completely new database and with only one more click you could back it up if you want to have a copy before you update your web site, for example. You will be able to modify the password, remove a database or permit remote access to it just as fast. For the latter option you may opt for the IP addresses that'll be able to connect to the database remotely so as to ensure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your data. If you would like to view the database content or change any cell or table from the CP, you may use phpMyAdmin, an effective web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven apps shall also be super easy as our script installer will create a database for the script that you have picked automatically.
