All script apps like forums or web shops save their data within a database - a set of cells and tables that contains all the Internet site information including items, prices, comments, and many others. When you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it runs on various platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its great performance even with huge databases. Numerous famous platforms such as Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to store their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Web Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel offered with our cloud web hosting plans will enable you to control 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 can back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your site, for instance. You'll be able to modify the password, erase a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you may pick the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely so as to make sure that unauthorized people shall not be able to access your info. If you'd like to see the database content or change any cell or table through the Control Panel, you should use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven apps will also be very easy as our script installer will create a database for the script you have picked automatically.
