MySQL 5 Databases
Why does almost every single web site nowadays use MySQL databases? How do the latter work?
All script applications including forums or online shops save their data in a database - a set of cells and tables containing all of the site data including items, prices, comments, and so on. Whenever you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed info, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used as it operates on different platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a range of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its wonderful effectiveness even with huge databases. Many widely used platforms including WordPress or Joomla™ work with MySQL databases to save their content.

will enable you to host MySQL-driven sites without any issue as our cloud platform has the latest management system version set up. You will be able to create, erase and control your databases without trouble via our custom Hepsia CP. If you want to migrate a site from another website hosting provider, you may use the phpMyAdmin tool that you can access through Hepsia, or you can connect remotely once you've allowed this feature for your IP address. In the same way you could also modify certain cells or tables within any of your databases. Setting up a backup is also uncomplicated and requires simply a click on the Backup button for a specific database. This function will allow you to keep a copy of a website on your PC or to export the content of a given database, change it on your end using some software, and then import it back.
