Secure MySQL connection

Hi there everyone,
I read the guides around here and they are awesome, but i have a question.
I have purchased a domain and secured it with Let’s Encrypt and everything is great.
But i can still connect to ‘phpmyadmin’ with the server ip address and get no secure connection.
What do i need to do? secure my ip address connection also or should i disable access from it?
I’ll be glad to hear an explanation about this matter and a guide too :)
Thanks in advance!

Use your domain instead of the IP address.
