If you use a script-driven app for your Internet site, any data that both you and the website users produce will be stored within a database - a collection of information, that is structured in cells and tables for simpler reading and writing. The latter is accomplished through special software known as database management system and one of the most popular ones around the globe is MySQL. A lot of script applications are built to work with MySQL since it is easy to work with, it performs perfectly on a server and it is universal as it can work with common web programming languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python) and on various hosting server OS (Windows, Linux, UNIX). There are hundreds of scripts which use MySQL, including popular ones for example WordPress, Moodle and Joomla.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia CP offered with our Linux shared packages will enable you to control all your MySQL databases effortlessly. It takes only a couple of mouse clicks to set up a new database and with just one more click you could back it up if you want to have a copy before you update your site, for example. You shall be able to change the password, delete a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you'll be able to opt for the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely to ensure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your information. If you wish to see the database content or edit any cell or table via the Control Panel, you should use phpMyAdmin, a powerful 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 which you have picked automatically.
