Remote MySQL



This feature allows remote hosts (servers) to access MySQL® databases on your account. This is useful, for example, if you wish to allow shopping cart or guestbook applications on other servers to access your databases.

Add Access Host

To specify remote hosts that can access MySQL databases on your account, perform the following steps:

  1. Enter the host’s name in the Host text box.

  2. Enter a description for the remote host in the Comment text box.

  3. Click Add Host.

*Please Note: If your service is on our new platform, you must contact our Support Team to allow this connection through our firewall.


Manage Access Hosts

This section of the database lists the remote hosts on your account and allows you to delete each host. 


Edit a description

To edit the description for a remote host, enter the new text and click Update. A message of success will appear.


Delete an access host

To deny database access to a remote host, perform the following steps:

  1. Click Delete next to the host’s name or IP address. A confirmation message will appear.
  2. Click Remove Access Host. A message of success will appear.
