Thank you for your question. When you are connecting to a database in Joomla, make sure you have created a database user first, then added them to the database.
The host name should be 'localhost' unless you are connecting remotely to this server, in which case you would use the domain name.
Then edit the following lines in the configuration.php file:
// database username goes here
public $user = 'database-username';
// database password goes here
public $password = 'database-password';
// database server name
public $host = 'localhost';
If you are performing a new installation, I recommend using Softaculous, as it simplifies the steps.
Also, if you are moving a site to us, here is a helpful walk-through guide on migrating an existing site.
