  3. SQL Server name

    I have setup an SQL database, and I need to configure the connectionstring in my web.config file. How can I determine the Server Name?

    Log into your Winhost control panel. Navigate to the Site Info Manager page. Click on the button MS SQL 2008. This will take you to the Database Manager where you can see the SQL server name, the database name, and your database login.

    The best and easiest way is to contact your registrar and make sure the domain name is setup so that its name server is pointing to our DNS servers.

    If this is an additional domain name pointing to your site, make sure you also enable the domain pointer inside your Winhost control panel.
