All script applications including forums or online shops keep their information inside a database - a collection of cells and tables containing all of the Internet site data including items, prices, comments, and so forth. When you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required info, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it works on different platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a variety of scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its fantastic effectiveness even with huge databases. A lot of well-known platforms like WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to keep their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Web Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our web hosting plans will permit you to manage all your MySQL databases without difficulty. It requires just a couple of mouse clicks to create a brand 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 Internet site, for example. You'll be able to change the password, erase a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you could pick the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely so as to ensure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your data. If you would like to see the database content or modify 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 very easy as our script installer will create a database for the script which you have picked automatically.

For the abovementioned option, you will have to include your IP address from the hosting account first as an additional level of safety against unauthorized access to your data.
