MySQL is among the most widespread database administration systems out there. A database is a group of cells with information which are organized in tables and the administration system is the piece of software which links the data to a script app. As an illustration, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth in a database and every time a website visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that needs to be displayed on a certain page. MySQL is extremely popular because of its great performance, convenience and the fact that it can operate with a lot of popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic web sites that are built with a script-driven application require some kind of database and some of the most widely used ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our shared hosting will allow you to take care of all your MySQL databases easily. It takes only a few clicks to set up 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 will be able to modify the password, delete a database or allow remote access to it just as fast. For the latter option you could opt for the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely to make sure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your information. If you would like to see the database content or change any cell or table through the Control Panel, you can use phpMyAdmin, a powerful 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 chosen automatically.
