phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, which shall present you with full control over a MySQL database. You may do practically everything - set up fields, rows and tables, erase them or change their data, export or import a whole database or only a certain part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is very important in case you want to switch hosting providers, due to the fact that you may very easily generate a full backup of a database in a variety of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with one file that contains the entire content of the database, so you can download it from the present provider, upload it to the hosting server of the new one and import it using the same tool on their end. Your website will look exactly the same, due to the fact that all script applications store their data in a database. With phpMyAdmin you could also quickly search and replace information of your choice across the whole internet site - a word, an expression or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Cloud Hosting
You'll be able to employ phpMyAdmin to access any database you create inside a cloud hosting account purchased through our company because we provide the tool by default with all packages. After you sign in to your Hepsia website hosting CP and set up a new database inside the MySQL Databases section, a small phpMyAdmin icon shall appear on its right-hand side. What it takes to log in instantly is to click on this icon and the tool shall open inside a new browser tab, so that you can handle the database content. That's also the way to import a database in case you are moving your site from another company to our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. The other way to log in to a database is if you take advantage of our direct phpMyAdmin login URL, but you should know the DB account info. This option will enable you to give access to any database to other people, without granting them access to the entire website hosting account.
