If you use a script-driven app for your site, any information that both you and the site users produce will be stored inside a database - a collection of information, that's arranged 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 famous ones around the globe is MySQL. A wide range of script applications are designed to work with MySQL since it’s easy to work with, it performs very well on a web server and it's universal as it can function with common web programming languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP) and on a variety of web server OS (UNIX, Linux, Windows). There are hundreds of scripts which use MySQL, including really popular ones for instance WordPress, Moodle and Joomla.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel included with our cloud services allows you to control all your MySQL databases with ease. It takes just a few mouse clicks to set up a new database and with only one more click you may back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your website, for example. You will be able to change the password, erase a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you may pick the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely to make sure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your info. If you would like to see the database content or change any cell or table using the CP, you can use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven apps will also be very easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script you have chosen automatically.
