This FAQ will explain which Database hostname you will need

The below video and explanation will help you to understand what Database hostnames are and which one you'll need to use.

The database hostname indicates the physical location of your database. You will need your database hostname in order to install software such as Wordpress or Joomla for the purposes of adding features to your website such as blogs, forums and content management systems.

The hostnames are to connect to your databases on your 123-reg hosting package.
