If you use a script-driven app for your website, any info that both you and the website users create will be stored in a database - a collection of info, that's organized in cells and tables for easier reading and writing. The latter is carried out by using special software called database management system and one of the most widely used ones around the globe is MySQL. A wide range of script applications are designed to work with MySQL as it is simple to use, it performs really well on a server and it is universal as it can work with well-known web programming languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP) and on a number of hosting server OS (UNIX, Linux, Windows). There are loads of scripts which use MySQL, including very popular ones like Moodle, Joomla and WordPress.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our shared hosting will enable you to take care of all your MySQL databases easily. It takes only a couple of mouse clicks to create a completely new database and with one more click you can back it up if you'd like to have a copy before you update your website, for instance. You shall be able to change the password, remove a database or allow 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 so as to ensure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your data. If you wish to see the database content or edit any cell or table via the Control Panel, you should use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven applications will also be super easy as our script installer will create a database for the script you have chosen automatically.
