MySQL is one of the most commonly used database control systems on the market. A database is a set of cells with info that are organized in tables and the administration system is the piece of software which links the data to a script app. As an illustration, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc in a database and each time a site visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that ought to be displayed on a specific page. MySQL is very popular due to its terrific efficiency, simplicity of use and the fact that it can operate with a lot of popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic websites that are developed with a script-driven app need some form of database and a lot of the most widely used ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
MySQL 5 Databases in Website Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia CP included with our website hosting services will allow you to control all your MySQL databases easily. It takes just a few mouse clicks to set up a new database and with only one more click you could back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your site, for example. You shall be able to change the password, erase a database or permit remote access to it just as fast. For the latter option you could choose the IP addresses that'll be able to connect to the database remotely in order to ensure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your information. If you wish to view the database content or edit any cell or table from the Control Panel, you can use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven applications will also be very easy as our script installer will create a database for the script which you have picked automatically.
