Connect remotely to a MySQL database in my cPanel hosting
Follow these steps to enable remote access to a database in your cPanel account. You need to know the IP address from which you'll be accessing the database. Remote access lets you manage the database with tools like MySQL Query Browser or MySQL Workbench.
- Log in to your GoDaddy cPanel hosting account. (Need help opening your account?)
- In the account Dashboard, click cPanel Admin.
- In the cPanel main page, in the Databases section, click Remote MySQL.
- Under Add Access Host, in the Host field, enter the IP address from which you want to access your databases.
- Click Add Host.
Applications that connect remotely to databases use similar settings. You can find your database's specific information using View your database details for cPanel hosting.
