If you use a script-driven application for your website, any data that both you and the site users create will be stored in a database - an accumulation of information, that is organized in cells and tables for easier reading and writing. The latter is done by using special software called database management system and one of the most famous ones worldwide is MySQL. A wide range of script apps are designed to work with MySQL as it's convenient to use, it performs exceptionally well on a website hosting server and it is universal as it can perform with common web programming languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java) and on a number of hosting server OS (Windows, UNIX, Linux). There are hundreds of scripts which use MySQL, including quite popular ones for instance Moodle, Joomla and WordPress.

MySQL 5 Databases in Website Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our Linux website hosting packages will enable you to take care of all your MySQL databases with ease. It takes only a couple of mouse clicks to create 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 website, for instance. You'll be able to change the password, delete a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you can choose the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely so as to ensure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your information. If you wish to see the database content or change any cell or table using the CP, you should use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven apps shall also be very easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script that you have picked out automatically.
