MySQL is one of the most widely used database admin systems available. A database is a set of cells with data which are structured in tables and the control system is the software which links the information to a script app. As an illustration, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc within a database and every time a visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that needs to be displayed on a particular page. MySQL is quite popular due to its excellent functionality, simplicity and the fact that it can operate with many popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic Internet sites that are developed with a script-driven application require some kind of database and a number of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Web Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia CP that comes with our web hosting will allow you to manage all your MySQL databases without difficulty. It requires just a few clicks to set up a brand new database and with just one more click you can back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your website, for example. You will be able to change the password, delete a database or enable remote access to it just as fast. For the latter option you can opt for the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely to ensure that unauthorized people shall not be able to access your data. If you'd like to view the database content or edit any cell or table through the Control Panel, you should 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 which you have selected automatically.
