All script applications like forums or e-shops store their information in a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains all the Internet site information such as items, prices, comments, and so on. Each time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified data, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and among the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it operates on a number of platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its amazing efficiency even with big databases. Numerous widely used platforms including Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to store their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Website Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia CP included with our Linux shared website hosting will enable you to manage all your MySQL databases without difficulty. It takes just a couple of clicks to set up a completely new database and with only one more click you can back it up if you'd like to have a copy before you update your site, for instance. You shall be able to change the password, remove a database or enable remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you could pick the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely to ensure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your info. If you'd like to see the database content or edit any cell or table using the CP, you may use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven applications shall also be easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script that you have selected automatically.

For the aforementioned option, you will need to add your IP address from the web hosting account first as an added level of security against unauthorized access to your info.
