Hi sam247,

Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to assist you today. For the mySQL hostname, you can use anything that points to your account, such as the domain name. Remember though, you'll need to specify the remote connections IP address in cPanel to allow the connection. Here's an article you may find helpful:
