If you are using a shared hosting service then it would be better to ask your provider or if you are on a VPS then perhaps you might forget to install the MySQL.

I've contacted my hosting provider and they didn't know.

do you have a control panel at your web host ? server details should be there

in general, when you signed up for web hosting, they send mail(s) with all technical details.

I have a cPanel but they haven't sent me the Database Server Hostname on my email.

Well, I don't want to share my cPanel to someone that I don't know.
I would prefer help.

^ who is your web host ?
if you have phpMyAdmin link at the panel main page then click it & try to find server details ..

I've also Private messaged you my Database details.

in general, localhost as server name should work on hostgator.
what is the error you get when you try using localhost ?
