phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, that will offer you total control over a MySQL database. You could do virtually anything - set up fields, rows and tables, erase them or modify their content, export or import an entire database or only a specific part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is vital in case you want to switch web hosting companies, simply because you may very 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 entire content of the database, so you could download it from the present provider, upload it to the web server of the new one and import it through the same tool on their end. Your website shall look exactly the same, because all script applications store their content inside a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also easily search and replace information of your choosing across the whole web site - a word, a phrase or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Hosting
phpMyAdmin is part of every single Linux hosting package that we provide and it's accessible via our custom-built Hepsia CP. A tiny phpMyAdmin icon shall be shown on the right side of every database which you create in the MySQL Databases section of the CP and by clicking on the icon for the database which you want to access, you'll be logged into the app instantly in a new tab of your browser. Then you can do anything you'd like - export the whole or part of the data, import a database, run SQL queries, search and modify terms. If you don't want to use the CP, you will also be able to log in using a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you must know the database account information. The last feature is beneficial if you have to provide access to a database to a third-party.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host a script-driven site inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to control the site database manually without any difficulty since you can sign in to phpMyAdmin directly from your hosting Control Panel. Any MySQL database that you set up shall be listed inside the Databases section of your account and it shall have a phpMyAdmin icon on its right side. Accessing the tool for a certain database is as basic as clicking on that icon and our system shall open a new tab inside your browser and it shall log you in automatically, to enable you to export/import or modify any content that you'd like. We also offer the option to sign in directly to phpMyAdmin without going through your CP. In this situation, the login is manual and requires a username and a password. This feature makes it possible for you to grant access to a specific database to other people without giving them access to your web hosting account.
