phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, which shall give you full control over a MySQL database. You may do virtually everything - set up fields, rows and tables, erase them or modify their content, export or import an entire database or just a certain part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is necessary if you want to switch web hosting providers, because you may easily generate a full backup of a database in a variety of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with just one file that contains the whole content of the database, so you can easily download it from the present provider, upload it to the server of the new one and import it using the same tool on their end. Your internet site will look exactly the same, for the reason that all script apps store their content within a database. With phpMyAdmin you could also conveniently search and replace content of your preference across the whole internet site - a word, an expression or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Website Hosting
phpMyAdmin is a part of each shared website hosting we provide and it is accessible from our in-house built Hepsia CP. A little phpMyAdmin icon shall be shown on the right side of every database that you create in the MySQL Databases section of the CP and by clicking on the icon for the database that you want to access, you will be logged into the app instantly in a new tab of your web browser. Then you can do everything you would like - export the whole or part of the data, import a database, run SQL queries, search and modify terms. If you don't want to employ the Control Panel, you will also be able to sign in via a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you need to know the database username and password. The last feature is beneficial if you have to grant access to a database to a third-party.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server plan 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 inside your Internet browser the instant you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a particular 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 would like to give access to another person such as a web designer, for instance, you could give them the database login info and they will be able to log in by using a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they'll never need access to your entire internet hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
