Is it good to work with a remote database instead of local databases for extended storage ?

A local database is usually fastest and recommended for most applications. However, some people have external applications that access their databases. In those cases it's a better idea to have an externally (preferably cloud) hosted database, so in the event HelioHost should have a service interruption, your external applications are still functional.

Databases take up very little space. I have never looked into database hosting. Perhaps other users could share their favorite database hosting providers?

I'm sure searching "free MySQL hosting" on Google will yield decent results.
