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.

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.

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

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