phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, that will give you full control of a MySQL database. You can do absolutely anything - create fields, rows and tables, erase them or change their data, export or import a whole database or just a certain part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is necessary in case you want to switch hosting companies, since you may very easily create a full backup of a database in a number of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with just one file which contains the entire content of the database, so you could 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 site shall look exactly the same, because all script apps store their data within a database. With phpMyAdmin you may also easily search and replace information of your choosing across the entire internet site - a word, an expression or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Web Hosting
We provide phpMyAdmin with all of our Linux shared web hosting packages and you shall be able to access it via the MySQL Databases part of your Hepsia Control Panel. In case you are signed into your website hosting account, you can click on the phpMyAdmin icon, that'll be on the right-hand side of each database you've set up, and you'll be logged in immediately. However, you could also access a database directly by navigating to our phpMyAdmin login page and entering the corresponding username and password. You shall have the same exact level of access in both cases and you shall be able to complete all procedures that the software tool supports, to enable you to easily import, export or change each of your databases. The direct link can be really useful when a third person, like a web designer, needs access to a given database and you do not want to give them complete access to the web hosting account.
