phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, which shall present you with complete control of a MySQL database. You can do practically everything - create fields, rows and tables, delete them or change their data, export or import a whole database or only a certain part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is very important in case you want to switch hosting companies, as you can effortlessly generate a full backup of a database in several formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with a single file containing the entire content of the database, so you can easily download it from the present provider, upload it to the web server of the new one and import it using the same tool on their end. Your website will look exactly the same, for the reason that all script apps store their data inside a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also easily search and replace content of your choice across the entire website - a word, an expression or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Hosting
You will be able to employ phpMyAdmin to access any database that you create inside a hosting account acquired from our company as we supply the tool by default with all packages. Once you sign in to your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and create a new database inside the MySQL Databases section, a tiny phpMyAdmin icon will appear on its right-hand side. What it takes to log in immediately is to click on that icon and the tool shall open in a new web browser tab, so you can handle the database data. This is also the way to import a database if you're moving your site from another provider to our advanced cloud hosting platform. Another way to log in to a database is if you take advantage of our direct phpMyAdmin login URL, but you should know the DB account information. This option will allow you to grant access to any database to other individuals, without providing them with access to the whole website hosting account.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you'll be able to access phpMyAdmin to control any MySQL database which you create in your account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. A new tab shall open in your Internet browser the instant you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a specific database and you will be logged into the sophisticated tool automatically, so you will not have to enter the database username or password. If you would like to provide access to another person such as a web designer, for instance, you could give them the database login credentials and they will be able to log in via a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they shall never need access to your entire hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
