All script applications including forums or online stores store their info inside a database - a group of cells and tables which contains all the site data such as items, prices, comments, and so on. Whenever you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed info, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it can run on a number of platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its fantastic efficiency even with big databases. Numerous well-known platforms like Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to save their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Web Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our Linux shared web hosting packages allows you to manage all your MySQL databases easily. It requires just a couple of mouse clicks to create a 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 Internet site, for instance. You will be able to modify the password, remove a database or enable remote access to it just as fast. For the latter option you'll be able to choose the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely in order to ensure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your data. If you would like to see the database content or edit any cell or table via the CP, you can use phpMyAdmin, a powerful web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven apps will also be very easy as our script installer will create a database for the script you have selected automatically.
