All script applications like forums or virtual stores store their info within a database - a set of cells and tables which contains all of the Internet site info like items, prices, comments, and so on. Each time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary information, then shows it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it functions on different platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its amazing efficiency even with massive databases. Many famous platforms such as WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to save their content.

Via our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to easily create or remove a database, change its password, back it up with a single mouse click or examine the hourly and daily access statistics for it.
