MySQL is one of the most commonly used database control systems in existence. A database is a set of cells with info that are organized in tables and the management system is the software which links the data to a script app. As an example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth within a database and every single time a site visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that ought to be accessible on a certain page. MySQL is really popular due to its great functionality, convenience and the fact that it can function with lots of popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic websites which are designed with a script-driven app need some kind of database and many of the most popular ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Website Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia CP that comes with our shared website hosting allows you to take care of all your MySQL databases with ease. It takes just a few clicks to create a new database and with one more click you could back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your website, for example. You will be able to modify the password, delete a database or allow remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you can pick the IP addresses that'll be able to connect to the database remotely in order to make sure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your information. If you'd like to see the database content or modify any cell or table via the Control Panel, you may use phpMyAdmin, a powerful web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven applications will also be quite simple as our script installer will create a database for the script you have selected automatically.
