phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, that will provide you with full control of a MySQL database. You may do absolutely everything - create fields, rows and tables, delete them or alter their data, export or import an entire database or only a specific part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is necessary if you want to switch hosting companies, simply because you can conveniently create a full backup of a database in a number of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You shall end up with just one file that contains the entire content of the database, so you could download it from the current 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, because all script apps store their content within a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also conveniently search and replace content of your choice across the entire web site - a word, an expression or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Cloud Web Hosting
You'll be able to use phpMyAdmin to access any database you create in a cloud web hosting account acquired through our company because we supply the tool by default with all plans. Once you sign in to your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and create a new database in the MySQL Databases section, a tiny phpMyAdmin icon shall appear on its right-hand side. What it requires to log in automatically is to click on this icon and the tool shall open inside a new browser tab, so you can handle the database content. That's also the way to import a database if you are moving your Internet site from another host company to our innovative cloud hosting platform. A different way to log in to a database is if you take advantage of our direct phpMyAdmin login URL, but you must know the DB account information. This option will permit you to provide access to any database to other people, without giving them access to the whole hosting account.
