phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool developed in PHP, which will provide you with 100 % control over a MySQL database. You can do practically anything - set up fields, rows and tables, delete them or modify their data, export or import an entire database or only a specific part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is very important in case you would like to switch hosting providers, due to the fact that you can easily create a full backup of a database in different formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with a single file which contains the whole content of the database, so you could download it from the current provider, upload it to the server of the new one and import it via the same tool on their end. Your website will look exactly the same, because all script apps store their data within a database. With phpMyAdmin you could also easily search and replace information of your preference across the entire website - a word, an expression or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Cloud Hosting
You shall be able to use phpMyAdmin to access any database that you set up inside a cloud hosting account acquired through our company as we supply the tool by default with all of our packages. After you sign in to your Hepsia Internet hosting CP and create a new database in the MySQL Databases section, a small phpMyAdmin icon shall appear on its right-hand side. What it requires to log in automatically is to click on this icon and the tool will open in a new web browser tab, so you can control the database content. That's also how you could import a database when you are moving your website from another host company to our advanced cloud hosting platform. Another way to log in to a database is if you use our direct phpMyAdmin login URL, but you need to know the DB username and password. This option will permit you to grant access to any database to other individuals, without providing them with access to the whole web hosting account.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
phpMyAdmin is amongst the tools which come with all our Linux semi-dedicated plans. You can log into it and manage all of your MySQL databases if you click on the phpMyAdmin icon located on the right side of every database that you have created through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You shall not have to do anything else, since our system shall log you in automatically and you may proceed with the tasks you have to do - import a database file from another company, change some content, and so on. You may access a database by using the direct phpMyAdmin login page as well, but in such a case you'll have to input the correct account information. You can use this option if you hire a web developer, as they can work on your website without accessing your hosting CP. That way, all files and emails which you have inside the account shall be secure.
