This will probably clear up after the hosting company fixes the MySQL server...

The error message usually occurs when the MySQL server drops the connection to the client, either because it died or had a network problem. I have seen this happen when the IP that you try to connect to is a live machine, but doesn't have MySQL running on it... The client tries to connect, but gets a connection refused. Rather than saying "connection refused", though, it reports "server went away".

hmmmm, well, my DB is hosted on a remote server, could that be part of the problem? What can I do to help resolve this?

maybe contact the host of that remote server? that was the point, they are the ones who control their machines, so you need to ask them what the problem is.
