phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, that will provide you with 100 % control of a MySQL database. You could do literally anything - create fields, rows and tables, delete them or modify their data, export or import an entire database or just a certain part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is irreplaceable when you want to switch hosting companies, as you may easily create a full backup of a database in different formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with a single file containing the entire content of the database, so you could download it from the present provider, upload it to the hosting server of the new one and import it using the same tool on their end. Your website will look exactly the same, simply because all script apps store their content within a database. With phpMyAdmin you may also conveniently search and replace content of your preference across the whole internet site - a word, an expression or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Hosting
You'll be able to employ phpMyAdmin to access any database you set up inside a shared hosting account purchased from our company because we provide the tool by default with all our packages. Once you sign in to your Hepsia web hosting CP and create a new database in the MySQL Databases section, a small phpMyAdmin icon shall appear on its right-hand side. What it takes to log in instantly is to click on that icon and the tool will open in a new Internet browser tab, so you can manage the database content. That's also how you can import a database when you are moving your website from another host company to our advanced cloud hosting platform. Another way to log in to a database is if you use our direct phpMyAdmin login URL, but you must know the DB username and password. This option will enable you to provide access to any database to other people, without giving them access to the entire web hosting account.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you'll be able to access phpMyAdmin to control any MySQL database which you set up in your account from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. A new tab shall open within your web browser the moment you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a specific database and you'll be logged into the innovative tool automatically, so you'll not need to enter the database username or password. If you want to grant access to another person such as a web designer, for instance, you can give them the database login information and they will be able to log in using a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they'll never need access to your whole web hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
