All script apps such as forums or online shops keep their data in a database - a group of cells and tables which contains all the site info such as items, prices, comments, and many others. Whenever you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified info, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and amongst the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it functions on a variety of platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its excellent performance even with large databases. A lot of widely used platforms like WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to save their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel offered with our shared hosting will enable you to control all your MySQL databases easily. It takes only a couple of mouse clicks to create a brand new database and with just one more click you can back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your Internet site, for example. You'll be able to change the password, remove a database or allow remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you'll be able to pick the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely in order to ensure that unauthorized people shall not be able to access your info. If you would like to see the database content or change any cell or table via the CP, you may use phpMyAdmin, a powerful 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 chosen automatically.
