MySQL is among the most widespread database control systems out there. A database is a collection of cells with information that are arranged in tables and the administration system is the software that links the information to a script app. For example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so forth in a database and every time a website visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that should be shown on a certain page. MySQL is very popular because of its superb functionality, simplicity of use and the fact that it can operate with a lot of popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth. All dynamic web sites that are developed with a script-driven application require some kind of database and a lot of the most widely used ones such as Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Website Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia CP that comes with our Linux shared website hosting packages
allows you to take care of all your MySQL databases with ease. It requires only a couple of clicks to create a brand new database and with just one more click you may back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your website, for example. You'll be able to modify the password, remove a database or allow remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you'll be able to choose 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 view the database content or modify any cell or table from the Control Panel, you can use phpMyAdmin, an efficient web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven apps shall also be very easy as our script installer will create a database for the script which you have selected automatically.
