Some customers may need to access their MSSQL databases remotely for maintenance or bulk operations. This is available for a limited number of Shared Windows based servers and all dedicated Virtual Private Servers (VPS’s).
A limited number of our Windows shared hosting servers allow remote connections to MSSQL via the default port of 1433. You can connect by using your domain name and the default MSSQL port of 1433 in the format your application or database manager supports:
If you are using SQL Server Management Studio you can connect with the below, replacing our example text with your own:
|Server Type||Database Engine|
|Server Name||<Your Domain Name Here>|
|Authentication||SQL Server Authentication|
|Login||<Your Database Username>|
|Password||<Your Database Password>|
For .NET applications that access remotely, please update your connection string to replace “.\MSSQLSERVER2019” with
<Your Domain Name Here>,1433 per the example below:
<Your Domain Name Here>,1433;Initial Catalog=<Your Database Name>; User ID=<Your Database Username>; Password=<Your Database Password>;
If you have any questions regarding remote connection issues, please contact our support team.
