When you use a script-driven app for your site, any data which both you and the website users create will be stored in a database - a collection of info, which is structured in cells and tables for easier reading and writing. The latter is accomplished through special software called database management system and one of the most famous ones around the globe is MySQL. A wide range of script applications are created to work with MySQL as it's convenient to use, it performs really well on a hosting server and it is universal as it can work with common web programming languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java) and on a variety of server OS (Windows, UNIX, Linux). There are hundreds of scripts which use MySQL, including extremely popular ones such as Moodle, Joomla and WordPress.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Web Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel included with our Linux cloud web hosting packages will allow you to take care of all your MySQL databases effortlessly. It requires just a couple of mouse clicks to set up a brand new database and with just one more click you could back it up if you'd like to have a copy before you update your website, for example. You'll be able to modify the password, erase a database or allow remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you can opt for the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely to make sure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your info. If you wish to view the database content or modify any cell or table using the CP, you may use phpMyAdmin, a powerful web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven applications will also be very easy as our script installer will create a database for the script that you have picked automatically.
