All script applications such as forums or virtual shops keep their information inside a database - a collection of cells and tables that contains all of the site info like items, prices, comments, and many others. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary information, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used because it works on a variety of platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its great efficiency even with big databases. Lots of widely used platforms like WordPress or Joomla™ use MySQL databases to save their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel included with our Linux shared hosting
will allow you to take care of all your MySQL databases with ease. It requires only a few mouse clicks to create a brand new database and with just one more click you can back it up if you want to have a copy before you update your Internet site, for example. You will be able to modify the password, delete a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you can opt for the IP addresses that'll be able to connect to the database remotely so as to ensure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your information. If you'd like to see the database content or edit any cell or table from the Control Panel, you should use phpMyAdmin, an efficient web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven applications will also be easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script which you have picked automatically.
