phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, which will provide you with 100 % control of a MySQL database. You can do virtually anything - set up fields, rows and tables, remove them or change their data, export or import an entire database or only a particular part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is necessary in case you would like to switch hosting providers, simply because you can easily create a full backup of a database in several formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You shall end up with one file which contains the entire content of the database, so you can easily download it from the current provider, upload it to the hosting server of the new one and import it via the same tool on their end. Your internet site will look exactly the same, simply because all script applications store their data within a database. With phpMyAdmin you may also conveniently search and replace information of your choosing across the entire web site - a word, a phrase or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Website Hosting
You will be able to use phpMyAdmin to access any database you create in a website hosting account bought through our company because we provide the tool by default with all our packages. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel and set up a new database inside the MySQL Databases section, a little phpMyAdmin icon will appear on its right-hand side. What it takes to log in instantly is to click on this icon and the tool shall open in a new Internet browser tab, so that you can control the database content. This is also the way to import a database in case you are moving your web site from another company to our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. An alternative way to log in to a database is if you use our direct phpMyAdmin login URL, but you have to know the DB username and password. This option will allow you to give access to any database to other individuals, without giving them access to the entire hosting account.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host any script-driven website inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you shall be able to control the website database manually with ease because you can log in to phpMyAdmin straight from your hosting CP. Any MySQL database which you create shall be listed in the Databases section of your account and it will have a phpMyAdmin icon on its right side. Accessing the tool for a certain database is as easy as clicking on that icon and our system will open a new tab in your browser and it shall log you in automatically, to permit you to export/import or modify any content that you'd like. We also provide the option to sign in directly to phpMyAdmin without going through your Control Panel. In this situation, the login is manual and requires a username and a password. This function will enable you to provide access to a specific database to other people without giving them access to your website hosting account.
