phpMyAdmin is a powerful PHP-based software tool employed to control MySQL databases via a web interface. You can use it to run MySQL commands, set up, change and remove cells, rows and tables or handle users with separate levels of access to the database in question. All these tasks can be carried out from any device as long as you have an Internet browser and access to the web hosting account in which the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you could also export or import a whole database, which is a very useful function if you would like to migrate a website from one hosting provider to another. A variety of file formats are supported for the so-called dump file - CSV, SQL, XML and PDF, depending on what you would like to do - move the content from one web hosting account to another, preview an entire database in a spreadsheet app such as Microsoft Excel, and so on.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Hosting
You shall be able to use phpMyAdmin to access any database which you set up inside a shared hosting account purchased through our company as we supply the tool by default with all packages. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia website hosting CP and create a new database inside the MySQL Databases section, a small phpMyAdmin icon will appear on its right-hand side. All it takes to log in immediately is to click on this icon and the tool shall open inside a new browser tab, so you can manage the database content. That is also the way to import a database in case you are moving your site from another service provider to our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. The other way to log in to a database is if you use our direct phpMyAdmin login URL, but you have to know the DB account info. This option will enable you to grant access to any database to other people, without giving them access to the entire website hosting account.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
phpMyAdmin is among the tools that come with all our Linux semi-dedicated servers. You can log into it and handle any of your MySQL databases if you click on the phpMyAdmin icon situated on the right side of each database which you have created using your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You won't have to do anything else, since our system shall log you in automatically and you may proceed with the tasks you should do - import a database file from another host company, modify some content, and so forth. You can access a database by using the direct phpMyAdmin login page too, but in such a case you will need to type in the correct username and password. You could use this option if you hire a website designer, as they can work on your website without accessing your web hosting CP. This way, all files and e-mails which you have in the account shall be safe.
