SQL Server Hosting

When we wish to sell our product to an audience or market, be it through a website, or webpage, we must decide which type of server hosting is the most suited to our needs. To jump in and splash out a great deal of money on a dedicated host server is probably most unnecessary for the beginner, as having someone who is knowledgeable in the area to help you choose which type of server or hosting to use is vital.

SQL server hosting can be shared or dedicated, depending on your specific needs, the differences as well as the details of what comes with each package being found on many a marketplace website where we find hosts and servers for sale. Sharing an SQL server could cost you as little as $5 a month, and is really the recommended starting place, as a dedicated server could set you back around $150, and unless you are totally confident that you will bring in this amount of revenue and more on a monthly basis, sharing a server, especially at the outset, is often the better option.

The SQL server or SQL server hosting is a relational database management system from Microsoft. SQL servers run on T-SQL or Transact SQL. These are a set of programming extensions from Sybase and Microsoft that include added extras to standard SQL's such as transaction controlling, error handling and declared variables.

SQL server hosting was first introduced in the 1980's, although becoming popular in 2005 as the product came with enhanced flexibility, reliability and security as well as advances in technical support. The original SQL server was created in the late 1980's by Sybase and Microsoft, Sybase having since separated forces from Microsoft, and marketing their products under the name Adaptive Server Enterprise.

Today, SQL offer server hosting much the same as a variety of other companies, and the differences in prices and features can be seen on market place on the Internet. The differences for example between a shared SQL server host and a dedicated SQL server host are clearly mapped out, giving the customer the choice to proceed with exactly what he thinks he needs to fit his or her business or personal needs.

For example, an SQL shared server can offer you unlimited disc space, as well as unlimited emails and bandwidth, with a Windows or SQL 2008 server, and a website panel, all for less than $5 a month. This price includes free set up and would be a preferable option to someone starting out in business, it not being financially viable to pay out what is nearly $150 for a dedicated server until we know how much traffic to expect, and how successful our webpage or sites will be.

An SQL dedicated server can offer you, for example, a Quad-Core Xeon X3440 CPU with 8GB memory, double driver facilities, unlimited bandwidth, a free Windows 2008 server, and free set up. But having the unlimited control that a dedicated server or host can give you will cost you around $150 per month.

The choice of server is your own at the end of the day, but it is most important that you are advised by someone who has extensive knowledge in the field. You can also browse the Internet, as well as marketplaces therein to look for the best deals, but the best advice is to have someone who knows what they are talking about sit down with you and talk you through the options that are available to you, so that you make the adequate decision for your type of business.
