All script applications such as forums or virtual stores store their info inside a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains all the Internet site info such as items, prices, comments, etc. When 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 among the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it works on various platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its excellent efficiency even with massive databases. Many well-known platforms such as Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to store their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia CP offered with our Linux hosting plans will allow you to manage all your MySQL databases with ease. It requires just a couple of clicks to create a completely new database and with one more click you may back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your Internet site, for example. You will be able to modify the password, delete a database or allow remote access to it just as fast. For the latter option you can choose the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely in order to make sure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your info. If you want to see the database content or modify any cell or table from the CP, you may use phpMyAdmin, a powerful web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven apps will also be quite simple as our script installer will set up a database for the script that you have picked automatically.

If you prefer to install a script manually, you can create a MySQL database with ease, picking out its username and password. To save you time, we have also added quick-access buttons to create a backup or enable remote access to each of your databases. More tech-savvy users can log in to the efficient phpMyAdmin instrument and modify certain cells or entire tables by hand using a web interface. Inside the Databases section of the Hepsia hosting CP you'll also find hourly and day-to-day stats for each database which you have set up in the account.
