phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool developed in PHP, which will present you with full control over a MySQL database. You can do literally everything - set up fields, rows and tables, remove them or modify their data, export or import a whole database or just a particular part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is very important if you need to switch hosting companies, due to the fact that you may conveniently create a full backup of a database in a variety of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You shall end up with one file containing 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 using the same tool on their end. Your internet site will look exactly the same, because all script apps store their content in a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also conveniently search and replace information of your preference across the whole web site - a word, a phrase or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Hosting
phpMyAdmin is part of every single shared hosting we offer and it's accessible via our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. A tiny phpMyAdmin icon will be shown on the right side of every database that you set up inside the MySQL Databases section of the CP and by clicking on the icon for the database which you want to access, you will be logged into the app automatically in a new tab of your Internet browser. Then you can do anything you would like - export the whole or part of the data, import a database, run SQL queries, search and modify terms. If you don't want to go through the Control Panel, you'll also be able to log in via a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you should know the database username and password. The last feature is handy if you have to grant access to a database to a third-party.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host a script-driven website in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to control the website database manually effortlessly as you can sign in to phpMyAdmin directly from your hosting Control Panel. Any MySQL database which you create shall be listed in the Databases section of your account and it will have a phpMyAdmin icon on its right side. Accessing the tool for a specific database is as easy as clicking on that icon and our system will open a new tab inside your web browser and it will log you in automatically, to enable you to export/import or modify any content that you want. We also provide the option to sign in straight to phpMyAdmin without using your Control Panel. In such cases, the login is manual and requires a username and a password. This feature will permit you to grant access to a certain database to other individuals without giving them access to your website hosting account.
