phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool developed in PHP, which shall provide you with full control over a MySQL database. You can do literally everything - create fields, rows and tables, remove them or modify their content, export or import a whole database or only a particular part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is necessary if you want to switch web hosting providers, simply because you could very easily generate a full backup of a database in several formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You shall end up with only one file containing the whole content of the database, so you could download it from the present provider, upload it to the hosting server of the new one and import it using the same tool on their end. Your website shall look exactly the same, simply because all script applications store their content in a database. With phpMyAdmin you may also conveniently search and replace content of your preference across the entire internet site - a word, an expression or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Cloud Website Hosting
phpMyAdmin is a part of each cloud website hosting plan which we provide and it is accessible through our custom Hepsia Control Panel. A tiny phpMyAdmin icon will be shown on the right side of any database which you set up inside the MySQL Databases section of the CP and by clicking on the icon for the database you want to access, you will be logged into the application automatically in a new tab of your browser. Then you can do everything you would like - export the entire or a part of the content, import a database, run SQL queries, search and change terms. If you do not want to use the Control Panel, you shall also be able to sign in through a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you must know the database account information. The last feature is helpful if you have to provide access to a database to a third-party.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server package through our company, you'll be able to access phpMyAdmin to handle any MySQL database you set up in your account via the Hepsia hosting CP. A new tab shall open in your web browser the instant you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a specific database and you will be logged into the state-of-the-art tool automatically, so you will not have to enter the database username or password. If you want to give access to another person like a website designer, for example, you could give them the database login credentials and they'll be able to log in by using a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they'll never need access to your entire hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
