When you use a script-driven app for your website, any data which both you and the site users create shall be stored inside a database - an accumulation of info, that's organized in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is carried out by using special software called database management system and one of the most widely used ones world-wide is MySQL. A large amount of script apps are built to work with MySQL as it's easy to use, it performs really well on a website hosting server and it's universal as it can work with well-known web programming languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java) and on various hosting server OS (Linux, UNIX, Windows). There are literally thousands of scripts that use MySQL, including quite popular ones like Moodle, Joomla and WordPress.

MySQL 5 Databases in Website Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our website hosting allows you to manage all your MySQL databases with ease. It takes only a few clicks to set up a brand new database and with only one more click you can back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your website, for instance. You will be able to modify the password, erase a database or enable remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you can pick the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely so as to make sure that unauthorized people shall not be able to access your information. If you wish to see the database content or change any cell or table using the Control Panel, you may use phpMyAdmin, an efficient web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven apps shall also be super easy as our script installer will create a database for the script you have picked out automatically.
