MySQL 5 Databases
Discover what relational databases are and whether using MySQL databases can be beneficial for your sites and applications.
MySQL is among the most commonly used database admin systems on the market. A database is a group of cells with info which are organized in tables and the administration system is the piece of software which links the info to a script app. For instance, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc in a database and every time a visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that needs to be displayed on a specific page. MySQL is extremely popular because of its great efficiency, simplicity and the fact that it can operate with numerous popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic websites that are built with a script-driven app need some form of database and some of the most popular ones like Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
MySQL 5 Databases in Website Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our Linux website hosting allows you to control all your MySQL databases without difficulty. It requires just a couple of clicks to set up a new database and with only one more click you may back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your site, for example. You'll be able to change the password, remove a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you may opt for the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely in order to ensure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your information. If you would like to see the database content or edit any cell or table through the Control Panel, you may use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven apps will also be very easy as our script installer will create a database for the script you have chosen automatically.
