MySQL is one of the most popular database administration systems on the market. A database is a group of cells with information which are structured in tables and the control system is the software which links the data to a script application. For instance, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc in a database and every single time a site visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that has to be displayed on a particular page. MySQL is quite popular because of its terrific performance, convenience and the fact that it can function with a lot of popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth. All dynamic sites which are developed with a script-driven app need some kind of database and many of the most popular ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia CP included with our hosting packages allows you to manage all your MySQL databases with ease. It requires just a couple of clicks to set up a brand new database and with only one more click you may back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your site, for instance. You'll be able to change the password, remove a database or allow remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you may choose the IP addresses which 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 see the database content or modify any cell or table via the CP, you should use phpMyAdmin, an effective web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven applications will also be easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script which you have picked out automatically.
