WebFaction
Community site: login faq

I've installed a drupal site that I want to make portable. It may likely move to another host or even a dedicated webfaction host after I have the site roughed out. Is it possible to change my db name so it doesn't have my domain in the name? I'm just thinking it would look better to them not to have my domain name in their db tables.

It's not possible to rename databases at this time. If you'd like to achieve the same effect you'll have to dump your database, create a new database and import the SQL dump again.

However, your database name won't impact the portability of your site - you'll still have to update your settings regardless of where you host your database (unless you can somehow somehow use the exact username and password on all your hosts).
