All script applications like forums or online shops store their data inside a database - a collection of cells and tables that contains the Internet site information such as items, prices, comments, etc. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified info, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and among the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it works on a variety of platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a range of scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its amazing performance even with big databases. A lot of popular platforms including WordPress or Joomla™ use MySQL databases to keep their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel included with our shared hosting plans
will enable you to control all your MySQL databases easily. It takes only a couple of clicks to create a completely new database and with just one more click you can back it up if you'd like to have a copy before you update your site, for instance. You shall be able to modify the password, remove a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you could opt for the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely to ensure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your data. If you would like to view the database content or change any cell or table via the Control Panel, you should use phpMyAdmin, an effective web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven applications will also be easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script you have picked automatically.
