Connecting to SQL Server Database

Connecting to SQL Server Database

Open “Hosting Space home” page.

To see connection information for SQL Server databases under your hosting space open “Space Summary information” page and scroll down to “Databases” section:

If external connections to SQL Server are allowed by your hosting provider you should see server address in the section. Use this address to manage your databases from your local machine using Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Management Studio Express. It’s a free product that can be downloaded from Microsoft web site: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=08e52ac2-1d62-45f6-9a4a-4b76a8564a2b&displaylang=en

In “Databases” section there are also connection string samples for both classic ASP and ASP.NET. You could find more connection string samples at www.connectionstrings.com web site.
