phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, that will give you total control of a MySQL database. You can 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 vital when you would like to switch web hosting providers, because you can easily generate a full backup of a database in different formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with just one file containing the whole content of the database, so you may download it from the present provider, upload it to the web server of the new one and import it using the same tool on their end. Your site will look exactly the same, because all script apps store their data within a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also conveniently search and replace content of your choosing across the entire web site - a word, an expression or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Website Hosting

we provide and it is accessible from our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel. A small phpMyAdmin icon shall be displayed on the right side of each database you create inside the MySQL Databases section of the CP and by clicking on the icon for the database you want to access, you'll be logged into the app instantly 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 do not want to use the CP, you'll also be able to sign in via a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you should know the database username and password. The last function is useful if you have to provide access to a database to a third-party.

. You may log into it and control your MySQL databases if you click on the phpMyAdmin icon located on the right side of every database you have created using your Hepsia hosting CP. You'll not need to do anything else, since our system shall log you in automatically and you can proceed with the tasks you need to do - import a database file from another web hosting company, modify some content, and so on. You may access a database by using the direct phpMyAdmin login page as well, but in such a case you will have to enter the correct details.
