Updated Apr 8th, 2021 at 15:37 BST

If your website uses a database to store content (e.g. WordPress, Drupal), you will need your database hostname to connect your site to your database. To find your database hostname, check your hosting account type, and choose the correct option from the table below.

Hosting Type / Database hostname

cPanel / Use localhost

VPS / Use localhost

Dedicated Servers / Use localhost

Next steps:

Now that you have your database hostname you can get your database name, username, and password by viewing your database details (cPanel / Plesk). Once you have all your database details, you can update your connection strings to connect your website to your database.
