phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, which shall give you full control of a MySQL database. You could do absolutely anything - create fields, rows and tables, delete them or change their content, export or import a whole database or just a certain part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is vital if you want to switch hosting companies, because you may very easily create a full backup of a database in several formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with only one file which contains the entire content of the database, so you may download it from the present provider, upload it to the server of the new one and import it via the same tool on their end. Your website will look exactly the same, because all script apps store their content inside a database. With phpMyAdmin you could also easily search and replace content of your choice across the whole website - a word, a phrase or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Website Hosting
phpMyAdmin is available as an element of our website hosting and you shall be able to access it at any time through your Hepsia Control Panel. All databases that you create in the account will be listed in alphabetical order inside the MySQL Databases section of the Control Panel and all it shall take to log in to any of them shall be to click on the tiny phpMyAdmin icon, which will be on the right side of each and every database. You will not need to type in any information, as you'll be logged in automatically in a new web browser tab. If you prefer to sign in manually instead of going through the Control Panel, you will be able to do so through our direct phpMyAdmin login page where you will have to enter the database username and password. This option is handy if you have to grant access to a particular database to some third party, such as a web designer.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server package through our company, you'll be able to access phpMyAdmin to control any MySQL database you set up inside your account via the Hepsia hosting CP. A new tab shall open within your Internet browser as soon as you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a particular database and you will be logged into the advanced tool automatically, so you will not need to type the database username or password. If you would like to provide access to another person such as a web developer, for instance, you can give them the database login info and they will be able to log in through a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they shall never need access to your entire web hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
