MySQL is one of the most widely used database admin systems out there. A database is a set of cells with info that are structured in tables and the management system is the software that links the information to a script application. As an illustration, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so on within a database and each time a site visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which has to be displayed on a particular page. MySQL is quite popular because of its superb efficiency, ease of use and the fact that it can operate with numerous popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic sites which are built with a script-driven application need some form of database and a lot of the most popular ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our Linux cloud hosting packages will allow you to control all your MySQL databases without difficulty. It takes only a few clicks to create a new database and with one more click you could back it up if you want to have a copy before you update your website, for example. You will be able to change the password, remove a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you could opt for the IP addresses that'll be able to connect to the database remotely so as to make sure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your info. If you'd like to see the database content or edit any cell or table from the CP, you can use phpMyAdmin, an efficient web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven apps will also be easy as our script installer will create a database for the script you have chosen automatically.
