At that age, i think it is about 16 years ago, there is not enough popularity for computer. And it is only seen in high economically home and some offices only. At that time i saw computer first in an office when i went for a tour or study tour from my college. in office of a zoo, when my teacher take me to take ticket. In counter i saw a real computer for first time. That is i say it is not joke today babies are born in front of a computer.

File Manager in cpanel

Yes i am sure you will get some idea about eh cpanel what is it? how it look like and how to access cpanel of a domain name. etc. There is also a sections in cpanel admin board. Which mainly include phpmyadmin from where we can craete a database for our website. A database is the storage area or collection of datas that we are handled with our website. In our website we will deply in it a number of medias such as audio, video, text files , pdf files etc. So we want a database in order to store all these and access it when it needed to show in website. So that is the basic idea behind the database. But we need a database in our dynamic website only. But if we are only want a static website where we need an informational website, we can just create it with html and css, that is the basic building block of a website. So we don’t need database. If we are going to build website using php, wordpress, drupal ,magento, joomla! etc. Database is must. Ok i will tell you all about database administartion in another article, because there is a lot to learn at each part of a cpanel.
