How do I manage an MSSQL database?


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 Details

Your MSSQL Details can be viewed in your Domain Level Console.

    MSSQL 2008 mssql2001.your-domain.tld
    MSSQL 2012 mssql2012.your-domain.tld
