All script applications such as forums or virtual shops keep their info within a database - a group of cells and tables that contains the website info such as items, prices, comments, and many others. Each time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified info, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used as it works on a number of platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a range of scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its great efficiency even with big databases. Lots of famous platforms including Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to save their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our Linux hosting packages will enable you to manage all your MySQL databases without difficulty. It takes only a few clicks to set up a completely new database and with only one more click you could back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your web site, for example. You shall be able to change the password, remove a database or allow remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you could opt for the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely to ensure that unauthorized people shall not be able to access your data. If you wish to view the database content or change any cell or table via the Control Panel, you should use phpMyAdmin, an effective web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven applications will also be super easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script that you have picked automatically.
