phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, which shall provide you with complete control of a MySQL database. You could do literally everything - create fields, rows and tables, delete them or alter their content, export or import an entire database or only a certain part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is very important if you need to switch hosting companies, as you can effortlessly create a full backup of a database in different formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with only one file containing the entire content of the database, so you can 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 website shall look exactly the same, for the reason that all script applications store their data inside a database. With phpMyAdmin you could also quickly search and replace content of your choice across the entire internet site - a word, an expression or a link, for instance.

phpMyAdmin in Shared Web Hosting

phpMyAdmin is a part of each shared web hosting we provide and it's accessible from our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel. A tiny phpMyAdmin icon shall be shown on the right side of every 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'll be logged into the app automatically in a new tab of your Internet browser. Then you can do anything you'd like - export the entire or a part of the content, import a database, run SQL queries, search and modify terms. If you don't want to use the CP, you'll also be able to log in via a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you should know the database username and password. The last feature is handy if you have to give access to a database to a third-party.
