FreeMySQL.net

I host quite a few E107 and WordPress sites and each needs to have access to a MySQL database to function, and as part of my current hosting account with 1&1 Internet Ltd I get 2 MySQL databases, each one with a 100MB capacity. I can host multiple sites on each database but it can get a little messy with the amount of tables, and so It?s be nice to have a dedicated database for each site.

One option would be to upgrade my account in order to get the extra databases but of course that would cost me more money, and this is where FreeMySQL.net can help. Sign-up is very and all that is needed is for you to create a Username, a password, and give them a valid email address to activate the account.

We are the leading provider for absolutely FREE MySQL Database Hosting. With our control panel we give you the extra edge to managing your free databases. We provide an even higher level of support and service to you and the rest of our clients. Also being the absolute first free mysql database provider to have a control panel for our clients to manage their free databases, we give you the option to have multiple databases under one account. You are never limited to how many you can create, with a max of five at one time.

You can have a maximum of 5 databases with each account, which is completely free, and you also get access to phpMyAdmin, FlashMyAdmin, and MyQuickAdmin, which means you get quite a lot of control over your databases.

Obviously as a free service there are no guarantees and it?s worth having a read through the terms & conditions:

The software and host provided hereunder is on an ?as is? basis, and we have no obligations to provide maintenance, support, updates, enhancements, or modifications or continued availability of services. We are entitled to discontinue this service without notification and delete the databases irrevocably. We do not recommend you to use FREEMYSQL databases for any critical data and for any critical purpose! We refuse any warranty and liability!

I will still keep my permanent sites on my 1&1 hosting as I know that I?m covered if anything goes wrong, which is hopefully doubtful, but for my test sites and smaller sites I shall be using FreeMySQL.net and can always export and backup the tables if needed.

    Just thought it was worth mentioning that it?s quite likely that you?ll find a section in all Terms & Conditions outlining of any piece of software, which outlines the creators lack of responsibility for your use of it.

    Impressive stuff?

    I?ve been thinking about wiping my site and moving everything to WordPress but after 6+ years there is over 100MB worth of crap to sort and migrate? Life?s too short!

    Wordpress does include quite a few import features but even then there?s still alot of other bits to fiddle with, especially if you wanted to add tags to your old posts.

    Why not set up a new blog and have a play with it? See if you can transfer over to it, and if it?s rubbish there?s no harm done.

    I hope that you are enjoying our services, we have no plans of slowing down just looking to keep things going strong, with over 7,000 active users and around 5,000 or so databases that are actively in use.

    If you do get time it would be nice to hear your thoughts about our services.
