Hi, I currently use Heart Internet for free hosting but they do not offer any MySQL databases, even with the basic paid for package and the next one is too expensive, Im using www.freemysql.net instead for db and its working...

but would anyone suggest a better source for my databases?

Thanks

Hmm ... Very interesting. And I can use a database on resources from other hosts?

Unless you have a proper paid plan the chances of getting everything for free is unlikely :)

@FANFAN what is it you can't check?

It is definitely possible to use freemysql.net with any hosting packing. However as I've stated before it is slow and I would only use it for testing if you need, not for a reliable database source.

like Sean says from my experience it is best to use a proper paid plan. Hope thats helpful.
