Since we run a shared hosting environment, we have to uniquely identify your usernames to your account only. We do this by attaching your system username and an underscore '_' before all the databases and users that you create. This only applies to your database name and database username, your password stays normal.

Please remember:
- Your username can only be up to 7 characters long, every character after that will be cut off.  
- You need to add your user to your database after the two are created. 
- Database Server/Host Address- If your script or program is going to be accessing our database locally, meaning it is stored in your account, the server/host address will always be: localhost.
