First, this service is EXCELLENT. Its way more than I'd have expected from most paid hosts, and its well, free. . .
However there is one feature that I need which isn't available, so I thought I'd suggest it here.
I created a Java-based MySQL database manager, which I've been using to create entirely database driven sites (ie. all my php scripts are in the database, except a single 'dispatcher'. My Java software is analogous to an FTP client.)
The problem is that, as I've read in other posts, your firewall blocks all queries to/from port 3306, except those on a white list. This prevents me from using my Java DB manager. Since my laptop's IP changes several times a day, I can't be added to the whitelist.
From a developer's standpoint, I'd love to see you guys open up 3306 completely - and only use CPanel to allow/deny certain hosts. I've never administered a server, so I don't know the security/abuse implications of doing that. Nor do I know how many people other than me would benefit from such a change.
Are there plans for that in the future?. . . if not, just thought I'd throw it out there.
Also, does anyone know if port 3306 is open on the paid servers? I certainly wouldn't mind paying for great service/support like this, as long as I can get remote db access from my laptop.
