GoDaddy review : Suggest I invest in GoDaddy?? Looking for Dedicated Windows Host with SQL Server

Get GoDaddy web hosting for just $1.99. Click here to use coupon...

Special $7.49 .COM sales. Click here for this special deal...

Like the title says I'm looking for a dedicated windows host with SQL Server included. Some more detailed specs:.

- Windows Server.

- ASP.Net 2.0.

- SQL Server 2000 or SQL Server 2005.

- at least 1 gig of ram.

- at least 50 gigs of hard drive space.

Like everybody else, I'd somehow like it to be a quick, reliable host while also being relatively cheap. I know that adding SQL Server hikes up the price quite a bit (maybe I should buy the license separate?). I'd like to have the price be not too much more than $200 a month, but if that's unreasonably low, then please do let me know what my other options are..

Thank you in advance...

I would recommend you send the Chris an email from WebNX - Professional Hosting Solutions - they are *very* good at creating custom server packages to meet your needs specifically at a *very* good deal..

I like iWeb and Softlayer. Reliable and very good support..

BTW SQL Server standard 2000 or 2005 alone will cost you more than 200$/month!.

You can go with the workgroup version wich is around 60$/month..

But make sure you actualy NEED the standard or workgroup version because you can go with Sql Server 2005 Express for free!.

I run the Express version since 2 years now without any problem..

The features comparison is here

Good luck!..

Squirrelinabox if you shoot me a PM with your email addy I can ask one of my dedicated sales team to send you a quote...

Go with SQL express if you can. The hosting version of SQL is very pricy if your selling space/access. If not and you have to use the standard version you can get a 1 processor license for about $1,000...

Check here:. a Service of AccessIT. A full range of Dedicated Server and Managed Hosting Solutions..

You can run sql express and windows web edition. If you start with the $89 server and bump up the memory, you'll get your specs for ~$130/month..

I have a windows dedi with them and they've been good to me...

Thanks everybody for the feedback so far. I've been struggling with the whol SQL server issue as the Express version just may not work. From what I've seen though, I think I will go with Express to start with and then deal with upgrading when that time comes. The dedicated server will really only be holding a couple existing sites that are fairly new and some new projects that will potentially get fairly large. But from what I'm seeing, I really should go with Express and then upgrade later..

This weekend I'll be making a side-by-side list of all the solutions I have found and from the ones you guys all listed and we'll see if I find something I like...

Comment #6

But if you run the full version you can't "legally" do so on the web edition according to Microsofts EULA...

Comment #7

You WANT a windows server? wtf are you smoking?..

Comment #8

Vapor, is it me or you sound like an asshole in almost all your posts?..

Comment #9

It's called ASP.Net & SQL Server, the framework and development tools that I use. I've used both PHP + MySql and ASP.Net and MSSQL and in my personal opinion, ASP.Net and MSSQL is faster, cleaner, and all around better. Obviously that's just my opinion, but since those are the technologies I prefer, I need a Windows server (there are ways to pull it off without a Windows server, but I'd rather do what works natively)...

Comment #10

The interesting thing about opinions is that they're never benchmarked...
