MySQL is one of the most widely used database management systems out there. A database is a collection of cells with info that are arranged in tables and the management system is the software which links the info to a script application. As an example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth in a database and every time a website visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which should be displayed on a specific page. MySQL is extremely popular because of its excellent performance, simplicity and the fact that it can function with lots of popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic sites that are designed with a script-driven app need some type of database and a number of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.

For the latter option you'll be able to choose the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely so as to make sure that unauthorized people shall not be able to access your information.
