Remote\External access to the Database
We do not allow remote access to databases on our Shared Hosting servers.
This applies to our Shared Hosting subscriptions via cp.blacknighthosting.com, along with our Wordpress Hosting subscriptions.
Note that you can export the databases via the hosting panel/phpMyAdmin, however, if you require ongoing remote access to databases you will need to host the website on a Cloud VM or Dedicated Server.
