MySQL is one of the most popular database control systems on the market. A database is a group of cells with info which are arranged in tables and the control system is the software that links the information to a script application. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth in a database and each time a visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which needs to be accessible on a particular page. MySQL is extremely popular because of its excellent performance, simplicity and the fact that it can operate with many popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic sites that are designed with a script-driven application require some form of database and many of the most widely used ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Web Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel included with our Linux web hosting will enable you to manage all your MySQL databases with ease. It takes only a couple of clicks to create a completely new database and with one more click you may back it up if you'd like to have a copy before you update your website, for instance. 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 could pick the IP addresses that'll be able to connect to the database remotely to ensure that unauthorized people shall not be able to access your info. If you wish to see the database content or change any cell or table using the CP, you may use phpMyAdmin, a powerful web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven apps will also be quite simple as our script installer will set up a database for the script you have chosen automatically.
