Manage an MSSQL database

Categories Web HostingDatabases

Unfortunately, a web interface is not available for MSSQL database administration. Customers using an MSSQL database will need to connect to the MSSQL server using third party software such as Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio ExpressMicrosoft® SQL Server® 2008 Management Studio Express or EMS SQL Manager for SQL Server.

Before connecting to an MSSQL database you will need to:

  1. Create an MSSQL database
  2. Note down the MSSQL database connection details

MSSQL version

We support MSSQL 2000, 2005 and 2008 databases. To determine which version of MSSQL your database is running on follow the below instructions.

  1. Log into your Account
  2. Manage the domain you want to make changes to
  3. Click the Database icon
  4. Your database host will be one of the following:
    MSSQL 2000 - mssql.your-domain.tld
    MSSQL 2005 - mssql2005.your-domain.tld
    MSSQL 2008 - mssql2008.your-domain.tld

If your domain is not yet delegated to our name servers, using you-domain.tld in the connection settings won't work. If you wish to connect to the MSSQL database prior to delegating your domain name to our name servers, replace your-domain.tld with netregistry.net.
