    How big DB size? if it is small one then you can go with MS SQL Express 2008 (save up to 4GB).

    SQL Server Web Edition only allows anonymous database connections, which is perfect for most web server use. It is comparable in power to Standard Edition but lacks the ability to do any type of high availability except through log shipping. It's generally less expensive than other licensed editions.

    SQL Server Standard Edition allows both named (Windows accounts using CALs) and anonymous connections. It also supports high availability through database mirroring and two-node failover clustering. It's more expensive than Web Edition.

    Standard edition is the most common one for many hosting providers since it will meet the requirements for most projects. I think only few web hosting will provider web or express editions.

    if you're going with a dedi or a vps and you need to buy the license, i would suggest sql web edition.
    price is fair enough, and unless you don't need advanced features, that's more than enough.

    You may try to get consultation from your programmer, if any. They knows better. Licensed MSSQL give you more privilege for sure.
