phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, which shall offer you full control over a MySQL database. You may do practically anything - create fields, rows and tables, delete them or alter their data, export or import an entire database or only a specific part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is necessary when you want to switch web hosting companies, because you can easily generate a full backup of a database in a number of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with just one file containing the whole content of the database, so you may download it from the present 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 apps store their data inside a database. With phpMyAdmin you could also conveniently search and replace information of your choosing across the whole web site - a word, a phrase or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Web Hosting
We provide phpMyAdmin with all shared web hosting and you'll be able to access it through the MySQL Databases part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you are signed into your hosting account, you could click on the phpMyAdmin icon, which will be on the right-hand side of each database you've set up, and you shall be logged in automatically. Additionally, you could also access a database directly by going to our phpMyAdmin login page and typing in the corresponding details. You'll have the exact same level of access in either case and you'll be able to perform all operations that the software tool supports, to enable you to conveniently import, export or change any of your databases. The direct link may be very useful in case a third person, like a web designer, needs access to a given database and you do not want to give them complete access to the hosting account.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to access phpMyAdmin to control any MySQL database you set up inside your account from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. A new tab shall open within your browser as soon as you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a specific database and you'll be logged into the advanced tool automatically, so you will not have to type in the database username or password. If you want to give access to another person such as a website designer, for instance, you could give them the database login details and they'll be able to log in through a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they'll never need access to your entire web hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
