All script applications such as forums or online stores save their data within a database - a set of cells and tables that contains all of the site data such as items, prices, comments, and so forth. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed data, then shows it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used as it works on different platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a range of scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its amazing effectiveness even with big databases. A lot of popular platforms including WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to store their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Web Hosting

Starting or changing a MySQL database is going to be very simple with each one of our web hosting plans. This can be carried out via our feature-rich Hepsia Control Panel through which you can create or remove a database, set up a backup with just one click or employ the efficient phpMyAdmin software tool so as to modify cells and tables or import a whole database if you are moving a script-driven website from another service provider. You could even enable remote access to any database within your account and choose from what IP addresses the connection will be established, so as to guarantee the security of your data. If you choose to employ any of the script platforms we provide with our script installer, you'll not need to do anything as our system will set up a whole new database and link it to the Internet site automatically.
