phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, which shall provide you with 100 % control of a MySQL database. You can do practically everything - create fields, rows and tables, remove them or modify their content, export or import an entire database or just a specific part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is vital when you need to switch hosting companies, simply because you can conveniently generate a full backup of a database in a number of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with a single file containing 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 through the same tool on their end. Your website shall look exactly the same, for the reason that all script applications store their content within a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also effortlessly search and replace content of your choice across the whole website - a word, an expression or a link, for example.

We offer phpMyAdmin with all of our Linux web hosting packages and you'll be able to access it from the MySQL Databases section of your Hepsia CP. In case you are signed into your hosting account, you should click on the phpMyAdmin icon, that will be on the right-hand side of each database you've set up, and you shall be signed in immediately. As an alternative, you could also access a database directly by visiting our phpMyAdmin login page and inputting the corresponding details. You'll have the same level of access either way and you'll be able to perform all procedures which the tool supports, so that you can conveniently import, export or change each of your databases. The direct link can be quite useful in case a third person, such as a web designer, needs access to a specific database and you do not want to give them complete access to the web hosting account.
