MySQL is one of the most popular database control systems on the market. A database is a set of cells with data that are structured in tables and the management system is the software which links the information to a script app. As an illustration, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth in a database and every single time a visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that has to be displayed on a specific page. MySQL is extremely popular due to its excellent functionality, simplicity and the fact that it can function with a lot of popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth. All dynamic sites that are developed with a script-driven app require some type of database and a number of the most widely used ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.

The in-house built Hepsia CP offered with our cloud web hosting packages allows you to control all your MySQL databases effortlessly. It takes only a couple of clicks to create a completely new database and with only one more click you can back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your site, for example. You shall be able to change the password, remove a database or enable remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you can opt for the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely in order to ensure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your info. If you would like to see the database content or change any cell or table using the CP, you may use phpMyAdmin, an efficient web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven apps shall also be quite simple as our script installer will set up a database for the script you have picked out automatically.
