All script applications like forums or virtual stores store their data in a database - a set of cells and tables which contains all the Internet site information including items, prices, comments, and so forth. Every time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required data, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used as it operates on different platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its excellent performance even with massive databases. A lot of well-known 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 CP offered with our shared website hosting plans allows you to control all your MySQL databases effortlessly. It takes only a few clicks to set up a completely new database and with one more click you could back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your site, for instance. You shall be able to modify the password, erase a database or allow remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you'll be able to choose the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely to ensure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your information. If you would like to view the database content or change any cell or table via the Control Panel, you should use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven applications will also be very easy as our script installer will create a database for the script which you have selected automatically.
