Databases & MySQL

Being able to work with, change and store information in databases is a key part to any successful web hosting plan. Cloudfusion allows you to create a number of MySQL databases to suit your data storage needs.

MySQL is the web’s most popular open source database engine, and powers the vast majority of web applications (blogs, forums, shopping carts and more). Applications powered by mySQL generally run much faster than those which use text files to store data. With your account, you are allowed to create a number of mySQL databases. Databases can be managed using our control panel. You can create a number of mySQL users with different permissions, as well as modify access lists for different hostnames.

Cloudfusion also provides you access to edit and control your databases with a pre-installed and configured version of phpMyAdmin. This gives you quick and easy access to work with your databases through an online interface.
