phpMyAdmin is an efficient PHP-based software tool which is used to control MySQL databases via a web interface. You could use it to run MySQL commands, set up, modify and erase cells, rows and tables or control users with various levels of access to the database in question. All these tasks can be carried out from any device given that you have an Internet browser and access to the Internet hosting account where the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you may also export or import a whole database, which is a very helpful function if you would like to migrate an Internet site from one web hosting company to another. A number of different file formats are supported for the so-called dump file - CSV, SQL, XML and PDF, depending on what you need to do - move the data from one hosting account to another, preview an entire database in a spreadsheet app for example Microsoft Excel, and so forth.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Hosting
You'll be able to use phpMyAdmin to access any database you create inside a shared hosting account acquired from our company as we offer the tool by default with all of our hosting plans. After you log in to your Hepsia Internet 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 it requires to log in automatically is to click on that icon and the tool will open in a new Internet browser tab, so that you can manage the database content. This is also how you can import a database if you are moving your site from another company to our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. An alternative way to log in to a database is if you use our direct phpMyAdmin login URL, but you need to know the DB account information. This option will enable you to grant access to any database to other people, without granting them access to the whole hosting account.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server package through our company, you shall be able to access phpMyAdmin to manage any MySQL database which you create in your account through the Hepsia hosting CP. A new tab will open within your browser whenever you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a specific database and you will be logged into the advanced tool automatically, so you'll not have to input the database username or password. If you would like to give access to another person such as a web developer, for example, you can give them the database login info and they shall be able to log in through a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they shall never need access to your entire web hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
