When you use a script-driven application for your site, any info that both you and the site users create shall be stored within a database - a collection of info, which is structured in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is done through special software referred to as database management system and one of the most well-known ones worldwide is MySQL. A wide range of script applications are designed to work with MySQL since it is convenient to use, it performs exceptionally well on a hosting server and it's universal as it can function with popular web programming languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP) and on a number of web server Operating Systems (Linux, UNIX, Windows). There are loads of scripts that use MySQL, including very popular ones for instance WordPress, Moodle and Joomla.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our cloud plans allows you to manage all your MySQL databases easily. It takes only a few mouse clicks to set up a brand new database and with just one more click you could back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your website, for example. You shall be able to change the password, delete a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you can pick the IP addresses that'll be able to connect to the database remotely so as to make sure that unauthorized people shall not be able to access your information. If you want to see the database content or change any cell or table using the Control Panel, you should use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven apps will also be super easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script which you have selected automatically.
