If you use a script-driven application for your Internet site, any info that both you and the site users generate will be stored within a database - a collection of information, that's arranged in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is accomplished through special software called database management system and one of the most popular ones world-wide is MySQL. A lot of script applications are designed to work with MySQL because it’s user-friendly, it performs very well on a website hosting server and it's universal as it can perform with popular web programming languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java) and on a variety of server Operating Systems (Linux, UNIX, Windows). There are huge amounts of scripts which use MySQL, including extremely popular ones for example WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Website Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our Linux shared website hosting packages allows you to control all your MySQL databases easily. It requires only a few clicks to create a new database and with one more click you can back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your Internet site, for instance. You shall be able to change the password, delete a database or enable remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you can opt for the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely to ensure that unauthorized people shall not be able to access your information. If you want to see the database content or change any cell or table via the Control Panel, you can use phpMyAdmin, an effective web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven apps will also be super easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script which you have picked out automatically.
