MySQL is one of the most commonly used database administration systems on the market. A database is a collection of cells with information which are structured in tables and the control system is the piece of software that links the data to a script app. As an example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc within a database and every time a visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which needs to be displayed on a particular page. MySQL is very popular due to its great functionality, ease of use and the fact that it can operate with numerous popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic Internet sites that are designed with a script-driven app require some form of database and some of the most widely used ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting
Creating or editing a MySQL database is going to be really easy with each of our Linux shared hosting. That can be done using our feature-rich Hepsia CP through which you can set up or delete a database, create a backup with just one mouse click or use the effective phpMyAdmin software instrument to edit cells and tables or import a whole database if you are moving a script-driven website from another service provider. You may even enable remote access to any database within your account and decide from what IP addresses the connection will be established, so that you can ensure the safety of your data. If you decide to employ any of the script platforms that we provide with our script installer, you won't need to do anything as our system will set up a new database and link it to the website automatically.
