MySQL is among the most popular database control systems in existence. A database is a set of cells with information which are organized in tables and the administration system is the software which links the data to a script app. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so on within a database and every single time a website visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that needs to be shown on a specific page. MySQL is really popular due to its excellent performance, simplicity of use and the fact that it can function with many popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic websites which are built with a script-driven application require some form of database and many of the most widely used ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Website Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our Linux website hosting packages allows you to control all your MySQL databases without difficulty. It takes only a couple of clicks to set up a new database and with just one more click you may back it up if you want to have a copy before you update your site, for example. You'll be able to modify the password, delete a database or allow remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you can choose the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely in order to ensure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your info. If you'd like to view the database content or edit any cell or table using the Control Panel, you may use phpMyAdmin, a powerful web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven applications shall also be easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script you have picked automatically.
