When you use a script-driven application for your site, any information which both you and the website users produce shall be stored inside a database - an accumulation of info, that's structured in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is accomplished through special software known as database management system and one of the most widely used ones world-wide is MySQL. A wide range of script apps are created to work with MySQL because it’s convenient to use, it works really well on a web hosting server and it is universal as it can work with common web programming languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java) and on various server OS (Windows, UNIX, Linux). There are literally thousands of scripts which use MySQL, including really popular ones such as WordPress, Moodle and Joomla.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting

Setting up or changing a MySQL database will be very easy with each one of our Linux shared hosting packages. This can be accomplished using our feature-rich Hepsia Control Panel where you can create or remove a database, set up a backup with only one mouse click or use the highly effective phpMyAdmin tool so as to modify cells and tables or import an entire database if you are moving a script-driven website from another hosting company. You may also enable remote access to any database in your account and select from what IP addresses the connection shall be established, so as to guarantee the safety of your info. If you decide to use any of the script platforms we provide with our script installer, you'll not need to do anything simply because our system will create a brand new database and link it to the site automatically. If you encounter any difficulties to control your databases, you can check our help articles and instructional videos or get hold of our technical support.
