What's phpMyAdmin? What is its purpose? Why will your websites need it?
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, that will provide you with 100 % control over a MySQL database. You could do virtually anything - set up fields, rows and tables, erase them or alter their data, export or import a whole database or only a specific part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is irreplaceable if you would like to switch web hosting providers, as you could conveniently generate a full backup of a database in a number of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You shall end up with just one file that contains the entire content of the database, so you can download it from the current provider, upload it to the web server of the new one and import it via the same tool on their end. Your internet site shall look exactly the same, for the reason that all script apps store their content in a database. With phpMyAdmin you may also conveniently search and replace information of your choosing across the whole web site - a word, a phrase or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Cloud Web Hosting
phpMyAdmin is offered as a part of our cloud web hosting
and you'll be able to access it whenever you want through your Hepsia Control Panel. All databases that you create in the account will be listed in alphabetical order within the MySQL Databases section of the CP and all it will take to access any of them will be to click on the small phpMyAdmin icon, that will be on the right side of each database. You will not need to type in any information, since you'll be logged in automatically in a new browser tab. If you'd like to log in manually rather than using the CP, you'll be able to do that using our direct phpMyAdmin login page where you will have to input the database account information. This option is handy if you want to give access to a particular database to a third party, for example a web designer.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
We supply phpMyAdmin with each semi-dedicated server
account since all our packages support MySQL-driven sites. The tool is integrated in our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP and if you'd like to modify any database, you simply need to go to the MySQL section and click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a specific database. You will not need any login credentials as you'll be signed in automatically. If you do not want to go through your CP or you would like to provide access to any database to another individual for whatever reason, you will also have an alternative option - to visit our phpMyAdmin direct login page in which our system shall require the database username and password. If you hire a website design company, for example, you can employ that option to enable them to work on your site without granting them access to any files, e-mails or other databases inside the account.
