phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, that will offer you complete control of a MySQL database. You can do practically everything - set up fields, rows and tables, delete 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 in case you need to switch hosting companies, due to the fact that you can very easily generate a full backup of a database in a variety of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with only one file containing the whole content of the database, so you can download it from the current provider, upload it to the server of the new one and import it using the same tool on their end. Your site will look exactly the same, simply because all script apps store their content within a database. With phpMyAdmin you may also effortlessly search and replace content of your preference across the entire website - a word, a phrase or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Hosting
phpMyAdmin is offered as a part of our shared hosting plans and you will be able to access it anytime via your Hepsia Control Panel. All databases that you create in the account shall be listed in alphabetical order in the MySQL Databases section of the Control Panel and all it will take to log in to any of them will be to click on the small phpMyAdmin icon, that'll be on the right side of each database. You will not need to type in any information, as you will be logged in automatically in a new browser tab. If you would like to log in manually rather than using the CP, you'll be able to do that using our direct phpMyAdmin login page in which you will have to input the database username and password. This option is handy if you need to grant access to a certain database to some third party, such as a web designer.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to access phpMyAdmin to manage any MySQL database that you create inside your account via the Hepsia hosting CP. A new tab will open inside your Internet browser as soon as you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a specific database and you will be logged into the advanced tool automatically, so you will not need to type the database username or password. If you want to provide access to another person like a website designer, for instance, you can give them the database login details and they'll be able to log in via a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they will never need access to your whole web hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
