All script apps such as forums or virtual stores save their data within a database - a set of cells and tables containing the Internet site information including items, prices, comments, and so on. When you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required data, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and among the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it operates on different platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its great efficiency even with massive databases. A lot of well-known platforms such as WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Website Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel offered with our Linux shared website hosting packages will enable you to manage all your MySQL databases effortlessly. It takes only a few mouse clicks to set up 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 example. You'll be able to modify the password, remove a database or allow remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you'll be able to opt for the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely in order 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 via the Control Panel, you may use phpMyAdmin, an efficient web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven apps will also be very easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script that you have chosen automatically.
