All script apps such as forums or e-shops keep their info in a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains all the Internet site info such as items, prices, comments, and so on. Each time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified data, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used as it works on different platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a variety of scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its excellent effectiveness even with huge databases. Lots of famous platforms such as Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to save their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel included with our hosting services will permit you to manage all your MySQL databases without difficulty. It requires only a few mouse clicks to create a completely new database and with only one more click you may back it up if you want to have a copy before you update your Internet site, for example. You'll be able to modify the password, delete a database or allow remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you'll be able to pick the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely so as to make sure that unauthorized people shall not be able to access your data. If you would like to view the database content or edit any cell or table via the Control Panel, you can use phpMyAdmin, an effective web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven applications shall also be quite simple as our script installer will set up a database for the script which you have picked automatically.
