All script apps including forums or virtual shops store their information within a database - a group of cells and tables that contains all of the website info including items, prices, comments, and so on. Whenever you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed info, then displays it. The mid-level software which 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 widely used as it operates on several platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its amazing effectiveness even with large databases. Numerous famous platforms like WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to store their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia CP that comes with our cloud hosting will enable you to control all your MySQL databases without difficulty. It requires only a couple of mouse clicks to set up a brand new database and with one more click you can back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your site, for instance. You shall be able to modify the password, erase a database or enable remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you could opt for the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely to ensure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your info. If you want to view the database content or edit any cell or table using the CP, you can 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 that you have picked automatically.
