Hello Marcos,

I took a look at your hosting files and the applications you were running. It appears that you're setup run the application from our server. If the web application you are using is on our hosting server, and you also have the database here, then the setting would normally be localhost. This indicates that the database is local to the web server. We have a quick article on the matter labeled What is my hostname? Please review this article for any further information.

Let us know if you require any further assistance!
