All script applications like forums or e-shops keep their information inside a database - a collection of cells and tables containing all the Internet site data including items, prices, comments, and many others. Each time you open a specific 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 well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it operates on various platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a range of scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its great efficiency even with big databases. Many popular platforms like WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to store their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Website Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our shared website hosting plans will allow you to control all your MySQL databases effortlessly. It takes only a few mouse clicks to set up a completely new database and with 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, erase 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 so as to make sure that unauthorized people shall not be able to access your info. If you would like to view the database content or change any cell or table through the CP, you should use phpMyAdmin, an efficient web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven apps will also be super easy as our script installer will create a database for the script which you have chosen automatically.
