Setting up a database
Baconman321 (1060)

I found this good website with a remote SQL hosting ability since I heard that making a remote database and connecting to would work. I don't have a computer of my own so I cannot install SQL and everything. What I want to do is connect to my database, but I don't know how to. I know the simple things like username, host, and password. However, I don't know which is which. If you could look into it and tell me, that would be great. The website provides the password and the username, but then I heard things like root, and the username is just the name. How do I connect to the database, like what would I input for my connection variables? The website is Ok I just read about it, and it's for testing/development only, however, if I find a server hoster or anything like that, I would like to know what to input when connecting to them. What is the user, the password, the port? Heck, what even is a port? I need these definitions explained since I have a hard time learning about them in technical terms. I need examples and all that. Please help.
