All script apps like forums or web shops save their information in a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains all the website information like items, prices, comments, and many others. Whenever you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary data, then shows it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it can run on different platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its wonderful efficiency even with huge databases. Many widely used platforms like WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to save their content.

With the latter option you will be able to use software on your personal computer to connect to a database on our web servers and manage it. For easy management via the Control Panel we offer the powerful phpMyAdmin software tool, which will enable you to change tables or cells and import or export whole databases using a web interface. If you use our 1-click script installer, our system will create a whole new database and connect it to the application you have selected automatically, so all you'll have to do to get a script-driven Internet site is to click on the Install button.
