    Hi @daubrey. Welcome to GoDaddy Community!


    You should be able to host a database with another provider and connect to it. Usually you just need to specify the correct server address for the hostname in your connection string. However, not all providers allow outside connections to their databases or require a special setting to be changed. You may want to check with the database host to make sure that's not what's causing the issue you're seeing.
