All script applications like forums or online stores store their information inside a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains the Internet site information including items, prices, comments, and many others. When 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 referred to as a database management system and one of the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used because it can run on various platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its fantastic performance even with huge databases. Lots of widely used platforms such as Joomla™ or WordPress use MySQL databases to keep their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Website Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia CP offered with our Linux website hosting
will allow you to manage all your MySQL databases easily. It takes just a few clicks to create a new database and with one more click you may back it up if you'd like to have a copy before you update your Internet site, for instance. You'll be able to modify the password, erase a database or enable remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you may pick the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely in order to ensure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your information. If you'd like to view the database content or modify any cell or table using the CP, you should use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven apps shall also be easy as our script installer will create a database for the script that you have selected automatically.
