MySQL is one of the most commonly used database admin systems out there. A database is a set of cells with info that are structured in tables and the control system is the software that links the data to a script app. As an illustration, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc inside a database and every single time a site visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that should be shown on a certain page. MySQL is quite popular due to its great 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 forth. All dynamic websites that are designed with a script-driven app require some type of database and a number of the most widely used ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Web Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia CP offered with our cloud web hosting allows you to manage all your MySQL databases easily. It takes only a few clicks to create a completely new database and with one more click you may back it up if you want to have a copy before you update your site, for example. You'll be able to change the password, remove a database or enable remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you'll be able to pick the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely in order to ensure that unauthorized people shall not be able to access your data. If you wish to view the database content or edit any cell or table through the Control Panel, you may use phpMyAdmin, an efficient web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven apps will also be easy as our script installer will create a database for the script you have chosen automatically.
