Mysql database in DHCP sever issues

Jul 19 2016 1:25 AM
Hi all,
I am using MySQL as my application database in a local network applications. And in connection string I used IP address instead of computer-name. And the last three years everything worked very well without any errors but recently we changed our sever as a DHCP sever. From that point I am getting many connection errors as MySQL host not responding, connection failed etc. I just want to know can I have any benefits if I use computer name/server name in application connections string instead of IP Address?. As I am a newbie please help me to distinguish between using IP address and computer name in connection strings.
-Thanks in advance
