If you use a script-driven application for your website, any info which both you and the website users create will be stored within a database - a collection of data, which is structured in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is done by employing special software known as database management system and one of the most widely used ones around the globe is MySQL. A wide range of script apps are created to work with MySQL since it’s simple to use, it functions perfectly on a web server and it's universal as it can work with common web programming languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python) and on a variety of hosting server Operating Systems (Windows, Linux, UNIX). There are loads of scripts that use MySQL, including very popular ones such as WordPress, Moodle and Joomla™.
MySQL 5 Databases in Website Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel included with our Linux website hosting packages
will enable you to control all your MySQL databases effortlessly. It takes just a few clicks to create a completely new database and with just one more click you can back it up if you want to have a copy before you update your website, for instance. You'll be able to modify the password, remove a database or permit remote access to it just as fast. For the latter option you'll be able to opt for the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely to make sure that unauthorized people shall not be able to access your information. If you wish to see the database content or edit any cell or table from the Control Panel, you can use phpMyAdmin, a powerful web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven applications will also be super easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script which you have picked automatically.
