    mSQL hosting?

    I can't believe I couldn't find any info on mSQL hosts here

    Anywho, I'm needing a good host that provides mSQL database hosting. Nothing special, small website, maybe 100 MB disk space, 5 GB BW.

    Know of any give me a holla

    Deffy, if you mean MSSQL, most Windows hosts can accomodate your needs.

    And if you mean MysQL more or less all hosts will provide that.
    All the best

    And if you actually mean mSQL (link below), I'm surprised it's still around. We discontinued it after mSQL 2 came out and was not only incompatible with 1.x, but still a resource hog and difficult to manage for multiple users. Perhaps 3.x is better, but no customer has asked for it in years. Clearly MySQL has taken the mindshare.

    I would recommend MySql, which most hosts (if not all) can provide.

    Thank-you for the help and replies, but I'm looking for webhosts that have mSQL2. I have a database that can only use mSQL2 I know, I prefer MYSQL, but this database doesn't support it.


    I hope their are hosts out there that still offer this.


    Regards,

    You should probably look for a VPS or semi-dedicated where you can install mSQL2 yourself. That should be fairly easy.

    True although ask yourself is paying that much worth it for your script, You could maybe ask a few hosts and you may find something.
    Good luck

    Is there any reason that you can't convert the database from mSQL to MySQL?
