MySQL is one of the most widespread database control systems available. A database is a group of cells with info that are structured in tables and the administration system is the software that links the data to a script app. For instance, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth inside a database and every time a website visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that ought to be shown on a certain page. MySQL is very popular because of its superb performance, simplicity of use and the fact that it can operate with lots of popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth. All dynamic sites which are developed with a script-driven application require some kind of database and a lot of the most popular ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Website Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our Linux shared website hosting packages allows you to take care of all your MySQL databases easily. It requires just a couple of mouse clicks to set up a new database and with only one more click you could back it up if you want to have a copy before you update your site, for instance. You will be able to modify the password, remove a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you can choose the IP addresses that'll be able to connect to the database remotely in order to make sure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your information. If you'd like to view the database content or change any cell or table through the Control Panel, you may use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven apps will also be super easy as our script installer will create a database for the script that you have picked out automatically.
