I just mailed support asking if I could just assign a new hostname for that database so I could again connect to it and all the data would still be there (same DB, user and pass, it all appears to be there, just no host).
I'm sure it's just a matter of hostname, and the data's still there, but I'm kinda afraid to assign a new hostname until I'm sure I can get that data back.
Thanks a ton will, and please forgive the sloppiness here =\
edit you snuck in on me, (you rock BTW) and answered my question before I asked it! to answer yours, no the panel didn't squeel a bit about the domains being used as hostnames (or if it did it was some of that green text or something that's not entirely eye-catching).
