What is my database host name?

Database-driven applications, such as WordPress, use your database host name to connect to it.

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy account.
  2. Click Web Hosting.
  3. Next to the account you want to use, click Manage.
  4. Click Databases.

You can connect to the database using the IP address in the Database server column.

Warning: Do not include the port following the IP address for your MySQL databases. For example, if your Database Server is 1.1.1.1:3306, use 1.1.1.1 as your database's hostname.

If you need login information for the database, go to the Users tab. If you need to manage your databases' users' login info, see Reset your MySQL database password.

For other information to use in your database connection strings, see Viewing Your Database Details with Shared Hosting Accounts.
