Need help to decide what visual tool I could get/buy to rapidly develop internet accessable web apps that connect to mysql as a back end. I am a VB, VFP, Access programmer.

Money is not an issue, I respect that the *best* tool might not be free.
I would like to develop a web app that has a log-in screen and allows users, that would be initially unknown to me, to add their own passwords and customer info that they could maintain. I'd provide access to other users to review/print out that data.
I'm spoiled in that I really need the tools to be visual (drag and drop ideally). I can code and do so regularly in VBA but...aren't looking to create a web app one text line at a time. Adding snippets is fine though.
I've looked around but am confused at my choices. The application I create should be one in which any browser with an internet connection can immediately hit the web site and start working with forms to add and maintain data that is contained in tables in a mysql back end.
When my application is finished I'd like to be able to have it hosted it for me while allowing me to maintain the application and modify it as needed to reflect changing requirements. I'd like advice on a hosting site too :)
Thank you for any help you can offer.
