phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, which shall offer you total control of a MySQL database. You could do virtually everything - create fields, rows and tables, erase them or change their content, export or import an entire database or only a particular part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is very important when you would like to switch web hosting companies, because you can conveniently generate a full backup of a database in a variety of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with one file which contains the entire 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 through the same tool on their end. Your website will look exactly the same, due to the fact that all script apps store their data within a database. With phpMyAdmin you could also easily search and replace information of your preference across the whole website - a word, a phrase or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Web Hosting
phpMyAdmin is provided as an element of our shared web hosting plans
and you shall be able to access it anytime through your Hepsia CP. All databases you set up in the account will be listed in alphabetical order within 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 small phpMyAdmin icon, that will be on the right side of each database. You won't need to input any information, as you will be logged in automatically in a new browser tab. If you'd like to log in manually and not going through the CP, you'll be able to do this through our direct phpMyAdmin login page where you will have to input the database account information. This option is helpful if you need to give access to a certain database to a third party, for instance a web designer.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your script-driven site inside a semi-dedicated server
account from our company, you'll be able to administer the website database manually with ease as you can sign in to phpMyAdmin straight from your hosting Control Panel. Any MySQL database that you set up shall be listed inside the Databases section of your account and it will have a phpMyAdmin icon on its right side. Accessing the tool for a particular database is as basic as clicking on that icon and our system will open a new tab inside your Internet browser and it shall log you in automatically, so you can export/import or modify any content that you want. We also offer the option to sign in directly to phpMyAdmin without employing your CP. In this situation, the login is manual and requires a username and a password. This function will enable you to give access to a specific database to other individuals without giving them access to your hosting account.
