All script applications such as forums or web shops keep their information inside a database - a group of cells and tables that contains all of the website info like items, prices, comments, and so forth. Each time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required information, then shows it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it runs on various platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its wonderful functionality even with huge databases. A lot of popular platforms such as Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to save their content.

The in-house built Hepsia CP offered with our Linux hosting packages will permit you to take care of all your MySQL databases without difficulty. It requires just a few clicks to set up a completely new database and with only one more click you can back it up if you want to have a copy before you update your site, for instance. You'll be able to change the password, delete a database or allow remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you could choose the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely in order to make sure that unauthorized people shall not be able to access your information. If you wish to view the database content or modify any cell or table from the CP, you should use phpMyAdmin, a powerful web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven applications shall also be quite simple as our script installer will create a database for the script which you have chosen automatically.
