phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, which shall present you with total control of a MySQL database. You could do virtually anything - create fields, rows and tables, remove them or modify their content, export or import an entire database or only a particular part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is essential in case you would like to switch web hosting providers, due to the fact that you can very easily generate a full backup of a database in a number of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with a single file containing the entire 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 internet site shall look exactly the same, because all script applications store their content in a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also easily search and replace information of your preference across the entire web site - a word, a phrase or a link, for example.

phpMyAdmin in Shared Hosting

phpMyAdmin is a part of each and every shared hosting which we offer and it's accessible via our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. A little phpMyAdmin icon will be displayed on the right side of every database which you set up inside the MySQL Databases section of the Control Panel and by clicking on the icon for the database you want to access, you shall be logged into the app automatically in a new tab of your Internet browser. Then you can do everything you'd like - export the whole or a part of the data, import a database, run SQL queries, search and replace terms. If you do not want to go through the Control Panel, you shall 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 handy if you have to grant access to a database to a third-party.

phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your script-driven Internet site in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to handle the website database manually without any difficulty because you can log in to phpMyAdmin directly from your hosting CP. Any MySQL database which you create shall be listed in the Databases section of your account and it shall have a phpMyAdmin icon on its right side. Accessing the tool for a particular database is as easy as clicking on that icon and our system will open a new tab inside your Internet browser and it shall log you in automatically, to permit you to export/import or change any content that you would like. We also offer the option to log in directly to phpMyAdmin without employing your Control Panel. In cases like this, the login is manual and requires a username and a password. This feature will permit you to give access to a specific database to other people without giving them access to your website hosting account.
