How do I access MySQL remotely?

For security and performance reasons, we do not allow Remote MySQL on any of our shared or reseller hosting plans.

When MySQL is enabled for remote access, it has negative impacts on the server and its users, for example:

  • External brute force attacks.
  • Some customers might use our server as their main database server and point multiple external sites to our server.
  • If your database users were somehow compromised, external attackers will be able to access your database.
If you need remote mysql access, we recommend that you look into our Semi-Dedicated Hosting plans.
