A database will basically store all data your website saves. If you use WordPress for example, the database has all post and page information. The post you’re reading right now is saved in a database.
If you want to run a WordPress, magento or Opencart website a database is essential.
Adding A Database
First, go to CPanel and login. You’ll see a section with the name “Databases”. Click on “MySQL Databases”. The rest is pretty straightforward, there is a button which says ‘create new database’. Of course you’ll need to give the database a name first, after that you can click the button to create it.
That’s it, the database is ready for use.
