What is my database host name in Plesk hosting?

< All Topics

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

  1. Log in to your Adaptive Web Hosting account.
  2. Click Web Hosting.
  3. Next to the account you want to use, click Manage.
  4. Click Plesk Admin.
  5. 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, use 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.

For other information to use in your database connection strings, see View my database details in Plesk hosting.
