If you use a script-driven application for your website, any data which both you and the site users create will be stored inside a database - an accumulation of information, that is arranged in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is done by employing special software known as database management system and one of the most well-known ones around the globe is MySQL. A lot of script applications are built to work with MySQL since it’s convenient to use, it works perfectly on a web hosting server and it's also universal as it can perform with widely used web programming languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python) and on a variety of hosting server OS (Linux, UNIX, Windows). There are literally thousands of scripts that use MySQL, including popular ones like WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Website Hosting
Setting up or modifying a MySQL database shall be really easy with any of our shared website hosting packages. That can be accomplished using our feature-rich Hepsia Control Panel in which you can create or erase a database, set up a backup copy with one click or use the effective phpMyAdmin software instrument so as to edit cells and tables or import a whole database if you are moving a script-driven Internet site from another hosting company. You could also enable remote access to any database in your account and decide from what IP addresses the connection shall be established, so as to ensure the security of your data. If you choose to take advantage of any of the script platforms which we provide with our script installer, you'll not need to do anything because our system will set up a new database and link it to the Internet site automatically. If you encounter any difficulties to control your databases, you can check our help articles and instructional videos or communicate with our tech support.

For the abovementioned option, you'll need to include your IP address from the hosting account first as an added level of safety against unauthorized access to your info.
