  2. Click Hosting and Manage Site next to the package you’d like to add a database to.
  3. Under the Site Summary section, click Add a Database / Manage Databases.
  4. In the Database Name field enter a name for your database.

  7. In the Password field enter a password for your database.
  8. In the Confirm Password field, enter the same password again.
