All script applications including forums or virtual shops save their information within a database - a collection of cells and tables containing all the website information like items, prices, comments, and many others. Anytime you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed info, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it runs on various platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its amazing efficiency even with big databases. Many widely used platforms including WordPress or Joomla™ work with MySQL databases to store their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our shared hosting
will allow you to manage all your MySQL databases effortlessly. It takes just a few mouse clicks to create a completely new database and with only one more click you can back it up if you want to have a copy before you update your Internet site, for instance. You will be able to change the password, remove a database or allow remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you could pick the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely in order to ensure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your data. If you'd like to view the database content or change any cell or table using the Control Panel, you may 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 which you have picked out automatically.
