MySQL is among the most widespread database management systems out there. A database is a group of cells with data that are structured in tables and the control system is the software which links the information to a script application. As an example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc within a database and every single time a visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which has to be displayed on a certain page. MySQL is really popular because of its terrific functionality, simplicity and the fact that it can work with numerous popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic websites which are developed with a script-driven application need some kind of database and some of the most popular ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia CP offered with our Linux shared hosting will allow you to manage all your MySQL databases without difficulty. It takes just a few mouse clicks to set up a brand new database and with just one more click you may back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your Internet site, for instance. You shall be able to modify the password, erase a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you could choose the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely in order to make sure that unauthorized people shall not be able to access your data. If you wish to view the database content or edit any cell or table through the Control Panel, you may use phpMyAdmin, a powerful web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven apps shall also be quite simple as our script installer will set up a database for the script which you have picked out automatically.
