All script apps like forums or web shops store their info within a database - a set of cells and tables containing all of the Internet site information including items, prices, comments, etc. Each time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required data, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it works on different platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its great efficiency even with massive databases. Many widely used platforms such as WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to keep their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Website Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel included with our Linux cloud website hosting service allows you to manage all your MySQL databases without difficulty. It takes just a few mouse clicks to create a new database and with just one more click you could 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, remove a database or allow remote access to it just as fast. For the latter option you can choose the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely so as to ensure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your data. If you want to see the database content or change any cell or table using the Control Panel, you may use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven applications will also be very easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script which you have picked out automatically.
