is not a very secure daemon, and it would require careful configuration
and constant monitoring to avoid being hacked, if one exposed 3306 to
the internet. I would expect any hosting provider to use the policy of,
"close all ports except those that are absolutely necessary".
You can use web-based tools. Most hosting providers who provide MySQL,
also provide a web-based administration interface. Most commonly they
choose phpMyAdmin, but there are other options too.
You can also find a hosting provider who gives you shell access.
They're not very common, but there are some hosting services who offer
this. You can then ssh into the server and use command-line mysql
