I am trying to connect the program pgAdmin III to PostgreSQL database on server. What should I specify in the Host field?
I introduced the web146.webfaction.com but failed to connect.

You cannot connect directly to your DB server from your desktop or any other remote system. Instead, you must go through a SSH tunnel and then use "localhost" or "127.0.0.1" as the host name in your DB client. More information is available in our documentation: Accessing a Database Remotely
