    it should be "localhost" but will be better if you ask your provider support team just to be sure.

    Your MySQL hostname is typically localhost on a cPanel/WHM server, however you may want to confirm that with your web hosting provider as they can set up a remote MySQL server to work with cPanel/WHM software.

    If you do not know who your web hosting provider is, please visit http://www.WhoIsHostingThis.com
