phpMyAdmin is a powerful PHP-based tool which is used to control MySQL databases using a web interface. You could use it to run MySQL commands, set up, change and erase cells, rows and tables or manage users with different levels of access to the database in question. All these tasks may be performed from any device provided that you have an Internet browser and access to the web hosting account in which the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you may also export or import an entire database, which is an extremely helpful feature if you want to migrate a website from one web hosting provider to another. A number of different file formats are supported for the so-called dump file - CSV, SQL, XML and PDF, based upon what you would like to do - move the content from one hosting account to another, preview an entire database in a spreadsheet application such as Microsoft Excel, and so on.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Hosting
You will be able to employ phpMyAdmin to access any database you create in a shared hosting account bought through our company since we provide the tool by default with all of our hosting plans. When you sign in to your Hepsia Internet hosting CP and set up a new database in the MySQL Databases section, a small phpMyAdmin icon shall appear on its right-hand side. All it takes to log in instantly is to click on that icon and the tool shall open inside a new Internet browser tab, so that you can control the database content. That's also how you can import a database when you are moving your site from another company to our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. An alternative way to log in to a database is if you take advantage of our direct phpMyAdmin login URL, but you need to know the DB account info. This option will allow you to grant access to any database to other individuals, without providing them with access to the entire hosting account.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you'll be able to access phpMyAdmin to control any MySQL database you set up in your account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. A new tab will open in your 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 would like to give access to another person like a web developer, for example, you can give them the database login credentials and they'll be able to log in from 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.
