phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool developed in PHP, that will provide you with total control of a MySQL database. You can do absolutely anything - create fields, rows and tables, delete them or alter their content, export or import an entire database or just a certain part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is very important in case you would like to switch hosting companies, simply because you can easily generate a full backup of a database in a variety of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with one file which contains the whole content of the database, so you can easily download it from the present provider, upload it to the web server of the new one and import it via the same tool on their end. Your site shall look exactly the same, simply because all script applications store their content within a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also effortlessly search and replace information of your choice across the whole web site - a word, a phrase or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Web Hosting
phpMyAdmin is a part of every single Linux shared web hosting plan which we offer and it is accessible through our in-house built Hepsia CP. A small phpMyAdmin icon shall be shown on the right side of any database you create in the MySQL Databases section of the CP and by clicking on the icon for the database which you want to access, you shall be logged into the application instantly in a new tab of your browser. Then you can do anything you'd like - export the entire or a part of the data, import a database, run SQL queries, search and change terms. If you do not want to use the CP, you will also be able to log in using a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you ought to know the database username and password. The last feature is useful if you have to grant access to a database to a third-party.
