All script applications like forums or online shops keep their information inside a database - a set of cells and tables containing all the website data like items, prices, comments, and so forth. Every time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed data, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used as it runs on a number of platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a variety of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its fantastic efficiency even with huge databases. A lot of popular platforms like Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to store their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Website Hosting

Setting up or modifying a MySQL database will be easy with any of our cloud website hosting. This can be carried out via our feature-rich Hepsia Control Panel in which you can create or erase a database, set up a backup copy with a single click or employ the highly effective phpMyAdmin tool in order to modify cells and tables or import a whole database if you are moving a script-driven website from another hosting provider. You may also enable remote access to any database inside your account and choose from what IP addresses the connection will be established, so as to ensure the protection of your data. If you decide to employ any of the script platforms that we offer with our script installer, you will not have to do anything simply because our system will create a new database and link it to the site automatically. If you face any problems to control your databases, you can check our help articles and training videos or communicate with our technical support.
