phpMyAdmin is a powerful PHP-based tool which is used to control MySQL databases through a web interface. You may employ it to run MySQL commands, set up, edit and erase cells, rows and tables or manage users with various levels of access to the database in question. Every single one of these tasks can be completed from any device as long as you have a browser and access to the web hosting account where the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you could also export or import a whole database, which is a very beneficial function if you'd like to migrate a web site from one web hosting provider to another. Several different file formats are supported for the so-called dump file - CSV, SQL, XML and PDF, dependant upon what you need to do - move the data from one web hosting account to another, preview an entire database in a spreadsheet application for example Microsoft Excel, and so on.

phpMyAdmin in Shared Web Hosting

You will be able to use phpMyAdmin to access any database that you set up inside a shared web hosting account bought through our company because we provide the tool by default with all hosting plans. When you log in to your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and set up a new database in the MySQL Databases section, a little phpMyAdmin icon shall appear on its right-hand side. What it requires to log in immediately is to click on that icon and the tool will open inside a new Internet browser tab, so you can handle the database content. This is also the way to import a database when you are moving your web site from another host company to our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. A different way to log in to a database is if you use our direct phpMyAdmin login URL, but you must know the DB username and password. This option will enable you to give access to any database to other people, without granting them access to the entire website hosting account.

phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host any script-driven Internet site inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to handle the site database manually with ease simply because you can log in to phpMyAdmin straight from your website hosting Control Panel. Any MySQL database you set up will be listed inside the Databases section of your account and it shall have a phpMyAdmin icon on its right side. Accessing the tool for a specific database is as basic as clicking on that icon and our system shall open a new tab in your browser and it will log you in automatically, to enable you to export/import or change any content you want. We also offer the option to log in directly to phpMyAdmin without employing your Control Panel. In such cases, the login is manual and requires a username and a password. This feature will allow you to give access to a certain database to other people without giving them access to your web hosting account.
