Re: Is Mysql accessible outside website

This depends on many factors. Here's your list of things to check.

 

1) Does whatever account/service you've purchased from GoDaddy allow this.

 

2) Setup credentials (db host/name/user/pass) for you to access your database. The dbhost in this case will be the IP where you're connecting from.

 

3) Warning: This should only be done over SSL, which means...

 

4) You must setup MySQL/MariaDB SSL connections, if your account/service allows this.

 

In general, if you're writing a hobby app then GoDaddy hosting may be sufficient.

 

If you're writing an App you expect to succeed wildly + generate your income, then best look at dedicated hosting + hire an admin.
