Would you consider this a good security combo?

Hi!
So I'm working on a website, and I'd like to ask you, if the combo of security is good. Here's what I'm using for saving data:

 

USERNAME - None

Password - MySQL's built-in PASSWORD() function

IP - SHA1 (Logging IPs for security purposes. The website will have a special account system which will allow the user to get more content than a regular, non-registered user).

E-Mail - SHA1

 

Please let me know what you think, or, what could I use :)

@_realnickk Sadly, the MySQL hosting I use doesn't have SHA-256. I don't know if MySQL supports SHA-256 at all. As for OAuth, I'm not sure if I will add it, since not everyone needs or has GitHub. Thank you for your suggestion, though!

For password storage, good modern practice is storing with salts on top of the password. Attacks like rainbow tables are very easy to preform on an unsalted database and dictionary attacks would need the salts on top of its wordlist.
