All script applications such as forums or virtual shops store their info in a database - a group of cells and tables that contains all the Internet site info including items, prices, comments, etc. Every time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed data, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and amongst the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used because it functions on a variety of platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its excellent functionality even with huge databases. A lot of popular platforms like Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to store their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Website Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia CP that comes with our cloud website hosting will allow you to manage all your MySQL databases without difficulty. It requires only a couple of mouse clicks to set up a new database and with just one more click you may back it up if you'd like to have a copy before you update your website, for example. You will be able to change the password, remove a database or enable remote access to it just as fast. For the latter option you can pick the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely so as to make sure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your info. If you would like to see the database content or change any cell or table from the Control Panel, you should use phpMyAdmin, a powerful web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven applications will also be super easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script that you have picked automatically.
