What is MySQL ?
MySQL is extremely popular open source database software. MySQL uses Structured Query Language (SQL), a computer language designed for adding, retrieving and managing data within a database management system with logical, easy-to-use syntax. Using a database such as MySQL to manage data for your dynamic web site comes with many advantages including faster access speeds, enhanced security, increased stability and the ability to handle access by multiple simultaneous visitors. These features make MySQL a quick, flexible and reliable solution.
MySQL Databases are usually used by advanced programmers but are also required when running Wordpress or PHPBB, for example.
MySQL Database Hosting
With MySQL Hosting, customers do not need to install the MySQL database or any other software on their computer to use the MySQL database or administer it. The account comes with PHPMyAdmin, a Web-based utility for administrating MySQL databases. Users can add, modify and delete MySQL databases through the online interface with a Web browser such as Internet Explorer or Mozilla.
MySQL Hosting meets the demand for affordable MySQL database hosting by users that don't require full managed hosting, but who want to know that their applications are being managed in a completely secure, scalable and reliable environment.
