phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, which will provide you with total control over a MySQL database. You may do literally everything - set up fields, rows and tables, erase them or modify their data, export or import a whole database or only a certain part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is necessary when you need to switch hosting companies, because you can conveniently generate a full backup of a database in a variety of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with just one file containing the whole 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 shall look exactly the same, simply because all script applications store their data in a database. With phpMyAdmin you may also easily search and replace information of your choosing across the entire web site - a word, an expression or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Website Hosting
phpMyAdmin is featured as an element of our shared website hosting and you'll be able to access it whenever you want from your Hepsia Control Panel. All databases which you create in the account will be listed in alphabetical order in the MySQL Databases section of the Control Panel and all it will take to gain access to any of them will be to click on the small phpMyAdmin icon, that will be on the right side of each and every database. You won't have to input any information, because you'll be logged in automatically in a new browser tab. If you would like to sign in by hand and not using the CP, you'll be able to do so via our direct phpMyAdmin login page in which you'll have to type in the database username and password. This option is useful if you want to give access to a certain database to a third party, for example a web designer.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you will be able to access phpMyAdmin to control any MySQL database you set up inside your account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. A new tab shall open within your Internet browser the moment you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a particular database and you will be logged into the state-of-the-art tool automatically, so you'll not have to enter the database username or password. If you would like to provide access to another person like a web designer, for example, you can give them the database login details and they will be able to log in from 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.
