If you would like your database to be available to multiple users in multiple locations, but do not want to expose your home computer to the Internet for it to function as a database server, you may want to consider database hosting.
Myrro International offers monthly database hosting on dedicated database servers. These servers are used solely for our customers' databases. They do not host other websites, email, games, or anything commonly found on internet servers. They are not used by any other company or individual.
Here are some things to consider:
Each customer is issued a complex username and password that is required to connect to the database server. That username/password combination enables you to access only your specific database. No other customer will even know what other databases exist, because their username/password combination will be blind to all but their own.
The server username and password values are stored once on your database connection profile, so you don't have to enter them again. Once connected you will be able to create users and passwords inside MemberTies normally, using any security groups and rules you wish.
For an additional fee, we will add your database to a weekly backup process to give you additional peace of mind. We still strongly recommend doing an additional backup to your own computer for added redundancy, but having an additional automatic backup can save you if you forget to make your own backup occasionally.
To restore a database, you must contact support. For security reasons, we cannot allow anyone to load or restore a database onto the server. You can either send use the desired backup file, or we can restore the backup stored on our servers. Allow 24 hours for a database restore. Maintenance
Backups run at approximately 1:00 am CST (Central Standard Time, GMT -600). When backups run, your database tables may lock momentarily while the database is processed (if you're subscribing to our backup service). If we need to do other server maintenance that requires a restart of the server, we will send out an email ahead of time.
Contact support with any questions about database hosting, or please see our ordering pages if you are ready to order.
