phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, which will provide you with complete control of a MySQL database. You could do virtually everything - create fields, rows and tables, remove them or change their content, export or import an entire database or just a particular part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is very important in case you want to switch web hosting companies, since you may easily create a full backup of a database in a number of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with a single file which contains the whole content of the database, so you can easily 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 internet site shall look exactly the same, for the reason that all script apps store their content inside a database. With phpMyAdmin you may also conveniently search and replace content of your choosing across the whole website - a word, an expression or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Website Hosting
phpMyAdmin is featured as an element of our Linux shared website hosting services and you shall be able to access it anytime through your Hepsia Control Panel. All databases that you create inside the account shall be listed in alphabetical order in the MySQL Databases section of the CP and all it will take to log in to any of them shall be to click on the little phpMyAdmin icon, that'll be on the right side of each and every database. You won't have to enter any information, because you'll be logged in automatically in a new Internet browser tab. If you would like to log in manually rather than using the CP, you shall be able to do so via our direct phpMyAdmin login page in which you will have to type in the database account information. This option is handy if you have to offer access to a particular database to some third party, such as a web designer.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you shall be able to access phpMyAdmin to handle any MySQL database you set up in your account from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. A new tab shall open in your web browser as soon as you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a particular database and you'll be logged into the advanced tool automatically, so you will not need to type the database username or password. If you want to give access to another person such as a website designer, for example, you could give them the database login details and they'll be able to log in via a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they'll never need access to your whole internet hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
