phpMyAdmin is a powerful PHP-based tool which is used to manage MySQL databases through a web interface. You could use it to run MySQL commands, set up, edit and remove cells, rows and tables or control users with different levels of access to the database in question. Each one of these tasks may be done from any device given that you have an Internet browser and access to the Internet hosting account in which the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you could also export or import a whole database, which is a very useful feature if you want to migrate a web site from one web hosting provider to another. Many different file formats are supported for the so-called dump file - CSV, SQL, XML and PDF, dependant upon what you'd like to do - move the data from one hosting account to another, preview an entire database in a spreadsheet application for instance Microsoft Excel, and so forth.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Website Hosting
phpMyAdmin is offered as part of our shared website hosting plans and you shall be able to access it at any time via your Hepsia CP. All databases you create in the account will be listed in alphabetical order in the MySQL Databases section of the Control Panel and all it shall take to log in to any of them shall be to click on the tiny phpMyAdmin icon, that will be on the right side of each database. You won't need to enter any info, because you'll be logged in automatically in a new Internet browser tab. If you would like to sign in manually rather than going through the CP, you'll be able to do so using our direct phpMyAdmin login page in which you shall have to type in the database username and password. This option is helpful if you need to grant access to a certain database to a third party, for instance a web designer.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you'll be able to access phpMyAdmin to control any MySQL database you create inside your account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. A new tab shall open within your Internet browser whenever you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a particular database and you'll be logged into the advanced tool automatically, so you'll not need to type the database username or password. If you want to give access to another person such as a website designer, for example, you could give them the database login info and they will be able to log in by using a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they will never need access to your entire internet hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
