Find out what phpMyAdmin is, just what it’s useful for and the reasons why you will need it for your web sites.
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool developed in PHP, which will present you with full control over a MySQL database. You can do absolutely anything - set up fields, rows and tables, erase them or alter their content, export or import an entire database or only a specific part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is essential if you would like to switch hosting companies, simply because you may easily generate a full backup of a database in several formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with only one file that contains the whole content of the database, so you can download it from the current provider, upload it to the hosting server of the new one and import it using the same tool on their end. Your website 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 information of your choice across the entire internet site - a word, a phrase or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Web Hosting
We provide phpMyAdmin with all our Linux shared web hosting packages
and you shall be able to access it via the MySQL Databases part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you are signed into your hosting account, you could click on the phpMyAdmin icon, which will be on the right-hand side of every database you have created, and you'll be signed in automatically. Additionally, you may also access a database directly by visiting our phpMyAdmin login page and entering the corresponding username and password. You shall have the exact same level of access in either case and you shall be able to carry out all procedures that the software tool supports, to enable you to easily import, export or change any of your databases. The direct link can be extremely useful in case a third person, like a web designer, requires access to a given database and you do not want to give them full access to the website hosting account.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We offer phpMyAdmin with each semi-dedicated server
account as all our packages support MySQL-driven Internet sites. The tool is included inside our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP and if you'd like to edit any database, you just need to go to the MySQL section and click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a given database. You will not need any login credentials because you shall be signed in automatically. If you do not want to employ your CP or you would like to grant access to any database to another person for some reason, you'll have an alternative option - to navigate to our phpMyAdmin direct login webpage where our system will require the database username and password. If you hire a web developer, for example, you can use that option to allow them to work on your site without giving them access to any files, e-mails or any other databases inside the account.
