What are the pros and cons of having your databases stored on your local machine, or having them hosted by you webhost remotely? does either configuration affect the access to your data? (if they are both MySQL anyway...)

if you database is local then there is going to be a delay on queries

the request will have to connect to your machine then logon to the db before any queries are ran

plus your going to have to leave your machine running all the time.

leave it to the host and save allot of headaches
