What's phpMyAdmin? What is its purpose? Why will your websites need it?
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, that will provide you with 100 % control of a MySQL database. You may do literally anything - create fields, rows and tables, erase them or modify their data, export or import an entire database or just a particular part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is irreplaceable when you would like to switch web hosting companies, as you can very easily create a full backup of a database in different formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You shall end up with one file containing the entire content of the database, so you can easily download it from the present provider, upload it to the server of the new one and import it using the same tool on their end. Your website will look exactly the same, because all script applications store their data in a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also effortlessly search and replace information of your preference across the entire internet site - a word, a phrase or a link, for example.
