Remote MySQL

Overview

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.

Warning:

Your hosting provider may add remote hosts to this list at the server level. If you see a hostname that you do not recognize or remove a hostname that reappears later, contact your hosting provider.

Allow a remote server to access your databases

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

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

    Notes:

    • You may enter a fully qualified domain name (FQDN) or an IP address.
    • You may use the percentage sign character (%) as a wildcard. For example, to allow access from all IP addresses that begin with 192.68.0, enter 192.68.0.%.
  2. Click Add Host.

Deny a remote server access to your databases

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

  1. Click Delete next to the host’s name or IP address.
  2. Click Yes.
