If you use a script-driven app for your website, any information that both you and the site users create will be stored in a database - an accumulation of information, that is structured in cells and tables for simpler reading and writing. The latter is carried out by using special software called database management system and one of the most widely used ones globally is MySQL. A lot of script applications are created to work with MySQL as it's simple to use, it functions very well on a hosting server and it's also universal as it can function with popular web programming languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP) and on a number of server Operating Systems (UNIX, Linux, Windows). There are thousands of scripts that use MySQL, including really popular ones like WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.

The in-house built Hepsia CP offered with our Linux cloud website hosting will enable you to take care of all your MySQL databases effortlessly. It requires just a couple of clicks to set up a new database and with only one more click you could back it up if you'd like to have a copy before you update your site, for example. You shall be able to modify the password, delete a database or enable remote access to it just as fast. For the latter option you'll be able to choose the IP addresses that'll be able to connect to the database remotely so as to make sure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your info. If you'd like to see the database content or edit any cell or table from the Control Panel, you can use phpMyAdmin, a powerful web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven applications will also be super easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script you have picked out automatically.

For the abovementioned option, you will need to include your IP address through the web hosting account first as an added level of safety against unauthorized access to your data.
