phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, that will present you with total control over a MySQL database. You can do literally anything - create fields, rows and tables, delete them or modify their content, export or import an entire database or just a particular part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is necessary in case you would like to switch hosting providers, because you could conveniently generate a full backup of a database in a number of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You shall end up with a single file containing the whole content of the database, so you can download it from the current provider, upload it to the server of the new one and import it via the same tool on their end. Your site will look exactly the same, because all script applications store their data within a database. With phpMyAdmin you could also conveniently search and replace information of your preference across the whole website - a word, a phrase or a link, for instance.

phpMyAdmin in Shared Hosting

You will be able to employ phpMyAdmin to access any database that you create in a shared hosting account acquired through our company because we supply the tool by default with all our hosting plans. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and create a new database inside the MySQL Databases section, a tiny phpMyAdmin icon shall appear on its right-hand side. What is needed to log in instantly is to click on that icon and the tool shall open in a new Internet browser tab, so that you can control the database data. That is also how you could import a database when you are moving your website from another company to our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. A different 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 username and password. This option will allow you to give access to any database to other people, without giving them access to the whole Internet hosting account.
