Is it possible to connect Database from Mobile APK to Website MySQL

I have built a Mobile Apk and have also built a REST Server but my customers WebSite is on Shared Hosting and cannot deploy a REST Server. Now my option is to directly connect to the MySQL Database on the Website. Is it possible ?
The data I want to transfer to and fro is around 1KB per session (just registration details).

I use Delphi Seattle.

Oh yes that is good I can make a PHP REST Server module.
Will try RAD HTML5.

I use plain PHP with NO visible HTML.  For me these 'pages' are just programs that accept data from some desktop programs and return data to them.  I set them up with ridiculously long usernames and passwords to keep people out.  And since there is no 'form', anyone who wanted to 'crack' my page would have to create their own code or form to access it.  Of course... they would first have to know it existed.
