What's phpPgAdmin? What role does it have inside a web hosting account?
PhpPgAdmin is one of the most popular tools for controlling PostgreSQL databases. It's user-friendly, at the same time powerful and you are able to execute any action you want to - import, export and edit each cell, row or table in a database; grant, revoke or modify the permissions of a given user; execute SQL queries and a lot more. If you wish to have a backup of a PostgreSQL-driven website, for instance, or relocate it to another website hosting provider, you are able to export your entire database in a format which you decide on - SQL, CSV, XML, XHTML and so on. With phpPgAdmin, you will have full control of your databases and everything related to them. The instrument was in fact intended to be the PostgreSQL equivalent of phpMyAdmin, however these days the two have very little in common when it comes to the user interface.
phpPgAdmin in Cloud Web Hosting
In case the cloud web hosting
that you choose works with PostgreSQL databases as standard or you obtain them as an upgrade, you can use phpPgAdmin to manage them. The application can be accessed from the PostgreSQL section of our custom-made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and it takes only a click to sign in to any of your databases. This will happen right away in a separate tab of your Internet browser, and in case you wish to grant access to a database to a third user, you'll be able to provide them with the login credentials for that particular database and they can use the direct phpPgAdmin login page. In this way, a web designer or a company IT person will work on a given site without accessing any other thing in your shared website hosting account - files, e-mail messages, private info, and so on.
phpPgAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you would like to use PostgreSQL databases for your websites and you've got a semi-dedicated server
account from our company, you'll be able to access phpPgAdmin to manage them as this tool is a part of all of our packages. Setting up a new database will take a few clicks in the hosting Control Panel and with just an extra click on the phpPgAdmin button that will appear on the right-hand side of the database, you can log in automatically and execute all the tasks that you have to. In addition, we provide an alternative to sign in manually if you have the database credentials, so that you won't have to log in through your website hosting account. This will enable you to grant accessibility to a database to other people, like a third-party graphic designer, without compromising the security of your website content, e-mails or private info.
