Advice needed: Hosting provider for External Database in OS
Application Type

So it turns out my existing web hosting provider will not allow External Data connections. Time to move... lol

I'm sure someone in this community has current and first-hand experience in choosing a hosting provider that works seamlessly with OS. If that person is you, please share your advice.


  • MySQL (preferred)  
  • Low cost hosting (Non Profit Organization with a very limited budget
  • Decent Storage space

Am I missing something else? 

Thanks in advance!

Hi Dirk

are you using onpremis OS? 

Go for  OS oncload :D

We are new to OS, still checking it out. 

Looks very good so far! 

Agree, OS on Cloud looks like our best option.

I'm really looking for something like the attached screenshot ... FYI R310 = approx $20.60

Outsystems provide us the external database supports but i suggest use the outsystems cloud solution with default database.

We are using the MySQL AWS database but we need to maintain the database and performance tuning. 

Hello Dirk Stoltz,

I have used Fastcomet shared hosting database for checking the capabilities of the remote databases.

It worked fine with me.

You can find the pricing and feature details here:
