If you use a script-driven application for your website, any info which both you and the site users create shall be stored within a database - a collection of data, that is arranged in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is accomplished by using special software called database management system and one of the most widely used ones world-wide is MySQL. A lot of script apps are built to work with MySQL because it’s easy to work with, it functions really well on a server and it's universal as it can perform with common web programming languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java) and on a variety of web server Operating Systems (Windows, Linux, UNIX). There are loads of scripts which use MySQL, including very popular ones like Moodle, Joomla and WordPress.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Website Hosting

Starting or editing a MySQL database shall be really easy with each of our cloud website hosting. This can be performed through our feature-rich Hepsia CP in which you can create or remove a database, create a backup copy with just one mouse click or take advantage of the highly effective phpMyAdmin software tool so as to edit cells and tables or import a whole database if you are moving a script-driven website from another web hosting provider. You can also enable remote access to any database inside your account and select from what IP addresses the connection shall be established, to ensure the security of your data. If you choose to use any of the script platforms which we provide with our script installer, you won't have to do anything as our system will set up a new database and link it to the site automatically. If you experience any issues to control your databases, you can examine our help articles and training videos or make contact with our technical support.
