phpMyAdmin is a powerful PHP-based software tool which is used to control MySQL databases using a web interface. You can use it to run MySQL commands, set up, modify and remove cells, rows and tables or manage users with different levels of access to the database in question. Every one of these tasks can easily be performed from any device as long as you have a browser and access to the hosting account where the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you could also export or import a whole database, which is a very beneficial feature if you'd like to migrate a web site 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 on what you would like to do - move the data from one hosting account to another, preview a whole database in a spreadsheet application for example Microsoft Excel, and so on.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Web Hosting
phpMyAdmin is featured as a part of our Linux shared web hosting and you'll be able to access it whenever you want via your Hepsia CP. All databases you create in the account shall be listed in alphabetical order within the MySQL Databases section of the Control Panel and all it shall take to gain access to any of them shall be to click on the tiny phpMyAdmin icon, that'll be on the right side of each database. You won't need to enter any information, as you'll be logged in automatically in a new Internet browser tab. If you would like to sign in by hand rather than going through the Control Panel, you will be able to do so through our direct phpMyAdmin login page where you will have to enter the database account information. This option is handy if you need to give access to a specific database to some third party, such as a web designer.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will 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 inside your Internet browser as soon as you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a particular database and you will be logged into the advanced tool automatically, so you will not need to input the database username or password. If you would like to give access to another person such as a web designer, for example, you could give them the database login credentials and they'll be able to log in using a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they shall never need access to your whole hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
