Find out more about what phpMyAdmin is and how you can make use of it as an administrative tool for your MySQL databases.
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool developed in PHP, which shall present you with complete control of a MySQL database. You can do literally everything - set up fields, rows and tables, remove them or alter their content, export or import a whole database or just a certain part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is necessary when you want to switch hosting providers, because you may very easily create a full backup of a database in different formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with one file that contains the whole 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 internet site shall look exactly the same, simply because all script applications store their content in a database. With phpMyAdmin you could 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 Cloud Website Hosting
We offer phpMyAdmin with all our cloud website hosting and you shall be able to access it from the MySQL Databases section of your Hepsia Control Panel. In case you are signed into your hosting account, you can click on the phpMyAdmin icon, which will be on the right-hand side of each database you've set up, and you shall be logged in automatically. As an alternative, you may also access a database directly by going to our phpMyAdmin login page and typing in the corresponding username and password. You shall have the same exact level of access in both cases and you'll be able to execute all operations the software tool supports, so that you can easily import, export or modify any of your databases. The direct link could be quite useful in case a third person, like a web designer, requires access to a given database and you do not want to give them full access to the Internet hosting account.
