How do I designate a host name for my MySQL database?
  1. Go to the "Goodies > MySQL" area of our web panel.
  2. Click on the Modify link for your database.
  3. Enter the hostname you'd like to use for your MySQL db and click "Modify hostname now!"
The change should take about 5-10 minutes to happen.

Due to a limitation in our system you cannot, for now at least, have more than one MySQL database per hostname.

No, you cannot use localhost as our MySQL servers are separate from our website servers.

can you use 'localhost' as many installations suggest?
