What Is the MySQL Hostname?

The MySQL hostname will always be ‘localhost’ in your configuration files. If you need to connect to your database from your home PC, use your primary domain name or the server name that can be found in your account signup email.

To connect to your MySQL database remotely, please see Allowing Remote MySQL Access for more information.
