phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, that will provide you with total control over a MySQL database. You can do virtually everything - create fields, rows and tables, remove them or modify their content, export or import a whole database or just a particular part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is necessary if you need to switch web hosting providers, because you can easily generate a full backup of a database in a number of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You shall end up with a single file which contains 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 through the same tool on their end. Your site shall look exactly the same, for the reason that all script applications store their data inside a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also conveniently search and replace information of your choice across the entire website - a word, a phrase or a link, for example.

phpMyAdmin in Shared Hosting

phpMyAdmin is a part of each Linux shared hosting service that we offer and it is accessible through our tailor-made Hepsia CP. A tiny phpMyAdmin icon will be shown on the right side of each database that you set up in the MySQL Databases section of the Control Panel and by clicking on the icon for the database which you want to access, you shall be logged into the application instantly in a new tab of your Internet browser. Then you can do everything you'd like - export the entire or part of the content, import a database, run SQL queries, search and change terms. If you do not want to use the CP, you'll also be able to log in via a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you should know the database username and password. The last function is helpful if you have to grant access to a database to a third-party.

phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you shall be able to access phpMyAdmin to control any MySQL database you set up in your account via the Hepsia hosting CP. A new tab will open inside your web browser whenever 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 give access to another person such as a web designer, for example, you can give them the database login info and they shall be able to log in via a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they will never need access to your whole hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
