All script applications such as forums or web stores save their information in a database - a group of cells and tables that contains all the website data including items, prices, comments, and so forth. Whenever you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed 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 widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used as it works on a variety of platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its great efficiency even with huge databases. Lots of well-known platforms such as WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to keep their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Web Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel included with our shared web hosting allows you to manage all your MySQL databases with ease. It takes only a couple of mouse clicks to create a new database and with just 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, delete a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you may opt for 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 through the Control Panel, you should use phpMyAdmin, an effective web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven applications will also be easy as our script installer will create a database for the script you have picked automatically.
