When you use a script-driven application for your site, any info which both you and the website users generate will be stored in a database - an accumulation of information, which is structured in cells and tables for easier reading and writing. The latter is done through special software known as database management system and one of the most popular ones world-wide is MySQL. A lot of script applications are created to work with MySQL as it's convenient to use, it functions really well on a web server and it is universal as it can function with popular web programming languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java) and on various web server OS (Linux, UNIX, Windows). There are huge amounts of scripts that use MySQL, including very popular ones such as WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Web Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our Linux cloud web hosting will enable you to take care of all your MySQL databases with ease. It takes only a couple of mouse clicks to set up a completely new database and with only one more click you can back it up if you want to have a copy before you update your web site, for instance. You will be able to modify the password, erase a database or allow remote access to it just as fast. For the latter option you can choose the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely in order to ensure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your data. If you wish to see the database content or modify any cell or table from the Control Panel, you should use phpMyAdmin, an effective web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven apps will also be easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script that you have selected automatically.
