Before you can connect to your databases remotely, the IP working via remote connection has to be allowed on your account's side. To allow a remote connection, access your account's cPanel, and navigate to the Remote MySQL menu in the Databases section.
In the newly opened window, you will see the Host (% wildcard is allowed) field, where you can fill in the IP address from which the remote connection will be initiated. If you want to connect from any IP, enter % symbol. You can also enter a description for the remote host in the Comment text box:
Once you are done, simply click on Add Host and a new host will appear on Manage Access Hosts section:
Remote connections also require you to use our MySQL server hostname, which will be the same as your hosting IP address
Once remote MySQL is set up, it will grant access to all of your databases (still requires username and password authentication for that specific database you are connecting to)
Most of the servers use load balance, so it may happen that the request will come from different IPs. Therefore, we suggest using the wildcard option (%) while adding a remote connection (still requires username and password authentication)
