MySQL Host - MySQL

Can anyone recommend a good MySQL Host? I don't need website, email, all that crud, just a databae host. Ideally, I want to be able to create many databases at low cost. http://www.hostdepartment.com/mysqlwebhosting/ is nearly ideal, but they offer only MySQL 4.0. Thanks for any recommendations. -Greg...

    You might check out www.nearlyfreespeech.net. They are expanding their
    MySQL coverage. They *are* a traditional web host; however, with their
    pricing structure, you won't be paying much (if anything) for the unused
    web hosting. They have been a good, solid host for me for ~6 months.
    Others may have comments who have used them for longer.

    Mind you, as a free service there's no decent service guarantees (although
    they seem pretty good).
    For a paid for one that allows unlimited version 5 dbs try:

    THanks Jonathan. I checked them out, they only support MySQL access
    from their host (i.e. I need to be running my applications on their
    website).

    After checking out a number of other hosts, I ended up sticking with
    hostdepartment. They told me they are planning to release 5.x shortly
    after the new year. Their plan is fantastic, $4/month for unlimited
    space, traffic, databases and users. They provide external access to
    the DB too, which is important to me.

    I think you're right. I haven't used the mysql process too much over
    there but it looks like the only external connection is SSH (for
    maintenance).

    That's pretty standard for web hosting servers. Allowing remote access
    to the MySQL database is a big security hole. If you require a server
    configuration which has remote access to MySQL, you'll probably have to
    configure your own virtual server or setup something co-located.

    Well, after not finding anything to my liking, I bought a server and am
    providing my own MySQL hosting. If you'd care for an account contact
    me.
