I have a free domain running at x10hosting (x10.bz), and I want to find out the IP Address of my MySQL host for it, so I can contact the MySQL database from another host. I've already added that host to the access list, but now I need to find out the IP Address of the MySQL host. How can I find this out? x10 is using cPanel X and PHPMyAdmin.

The SQL query SHOW VARIABLES WHERE Variable_name = 'hostname' will show you the hostname of the MySQL server which you can easily resolve to its IP address.

SHOW VARIABLES WHERE Variable_name = 'port' Will give you the port number.

You can find details about this in MySQL's manual: 12.4.5.41. SHOW VARIABLES Syntax and 5.1.4. Server System Variables
