phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, which will provide you with total control over a MySQL database. You may do virtually anything - set up fields, rows and tables, delete them or alter their data, export or import a whole database or only a certain part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is vital in case you need to switch hosting companies, due to the fact that you may effortlessly generate a full backup of a database in several formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with one file that contains the entire content of the database, so you could download it from the present provider, upload it to the web server of the new one and import it through the same tool on their end. Your site will look exactly the same, simply because all script apps store their data in a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also quickly search and replace content of your choice across the whole website - a word, an expression or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Web Hosting
phpMyAdmin is provided as part of our shared web hosting plans and you shall be able to access it whenever you want via your Hepsia Control Panel. All databases which you create in the account will be listed in alphabetical order within the MySQL Databases section of the CP and all it shall take to log in to any of them will be to click on the little phpMyAdmin icon, that will be on the right side of each database. You will not need to input any info, as you'll be logged in automatically in a new Internet browser tab. If you prefer to log in manually and not going through the CP, you will be able to do that through our direct phpMyAdmin login page in which you shall have to enter the database account information. This option is helpful if you need to grant access to a specific database to some third party, for instance a web designer.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server package through our company, you will be able to access phpMyAdmin to manage any MySQL database that you create in your account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. A new tab shall open within your web browser as soon as you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a specific database and you'll be logged into the state-of-the-art tool automatically, so you'll not have to type the database username or password. If you want to grant access to another person like a web designer, for example, you could give them the database login info and they will be able to log in via a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they'll never need access to your whole hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
