How do I maintain an existing MySQL database?

You can maintain your database(s) using phpMyAdmin, which is built into your Domain Registration Services hosting account control panel. phpMyAdmin is the world's most widely tool for administering MySQL databases.

To access phpMyAdmin:

  1. Log in to your hosting account control panel.
  2. Click on the "Databases" icon
  3. Click on the database you wish to work with
  4. Click on DB WebAdmin
  5. The phpMyAdmin interface will now load via a popup window. If you're using Firefox, you may need to allow a popup exception.

You can also view these steps in our hosting video tutorial

Note: phpMyAdmin is an incredibly powerful tool, but does have a bit of a learning curve as it requires a basic knowledge of MySQL for some functions. 

However, the majority of people will never find the need to administer a database in such a way - most software applications requiring MySQL support that we offer such as shopping carts, forums and other tools set up all the tables in the database you'll need and configures them correctly - automated, as part of the installation process!

Still, for advanced users, phpMyAdmin is must-have tool and so of course Domain Registration Services provides it free with all our hosting plans. If you're not a Domain Registration Services client yet, you might also be interested to know that all our hosting packages include support for unlimited MySQL databases at no extra cost. You'll never be caught short by quotas on the number of MySQL databases you can have again!
