All script applications such as forums or online shops store their data in a database - a set of cells and tables that contains all the site info like items, prices, comments, and so forth. Whenever you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified data, then shows it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and among the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it functions on different platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its great efficiency even with large databases. A lot of popular platforms like WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to store their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our Linux cloud packages will enable you to control all your MySQL databases easily. It takes just a couple of mouse clicks to create a brand new database and with one more click you may back it up if you'd like to have a copy before you update your Internet site, for example. You'll be able to change the password, delete a database or allow remote access to it just as easily. 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 won't be able to access your info. If you'd like to see the database content or edit any cell or table using the Control Panel, you should use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven applications shall also be super easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script which you have selected automatically.
