phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, which shall offer you total control of a MySQL database. You can do practically everything - create fields, rows and tables, delete them or modify their content, export or import an entire database or only a specific part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is necessary in case you need to switch web hosting providers, since you could effortlessly generate a full backup of a database in a number of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with only one file which contains the entire content of the database, so you can easily download it from the current provider, upload it to the web server of the new one and import it via the same tool on their end. Your internet site shall look exactly the same, because all script applications store their content in a database. With phpMyAdmin you could also easily search and replace information of your choosing across the entire internet site - a word, a phrase or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Website Hosting
phpMyAdmin is part of each and every shared website hosting package which we provide and it is accessible from our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. A tiny phpMyAdmin icon will be shown on the right side of each database you create inside the MySQL Databases section of the CP and by clicking on the icon for the database which you want to access, you shall be logged into the application immediately in a new tab of your browser. Then you can do everything you'd like - export the whole or part of the content, import a database, run SQL queries, search and replace terms. If you do not want to employ the Control Panel, you will also be able to sign in using a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you should know the database username and password. The last function is handy if you have to provide access to a database to a third-party.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to access phpMyAdmin to manage any MySQL database which you create inside your account from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. A new tab shall open within your browser whenever you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a particular database and you'll be logged into the innovative tool automatically, so you will not have to type in the database username or password. If you would like to give access to another person like a web designer, for instance, you could give them the database login details and they shall be able to log in by using a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they shall never need access to your entire internet hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
