Thats the bad thing with IDEs like Dreamweaver. You have absolutely no idea how you connect to a database if you just drag and drop a database in your GUI...
It is not important where the Database is located on the server. The only important thing is, on which server and which port it is located. On many webhosts the database is on the same server as your webserver service. In this case localhost is the right host-parameter to connect to your database. Some Webhoster deactivate the "localhost" domainname, but your hoster can give you the info if this is the case. If your Database is not on the same server as your Webpages, you have to access your database-server with his IP or Domainname. If this is the case, your hoster will give you the info, too.
