    Hello,
    My advice is to look for a VPS solution.

    Less than $10/year won't get you much if anything at all. I think you should consider paying more like $50-$60 per year to find something decent.

    MSSQL is an expensive upgrade.
    With a budget plan, you will not get plenty of mssql dbs (1-2 most likely).

    I don't think you'll be able to find a hosting provider at that price that can offer you the features you want. The features themselves are not entirely unreasonable but I would be highly suspicious of any hosting provider that would let you have those features at the price you are looking for.

    Lol, my advice is NOT to look for a VPS solution.. usually they all suck. I tried 3 different (Windows/Plesk-based) VPS providers, and all had a huge problem with CPU ressources because at least 1 other user run his gameserver on the same machine etc... you also have the same security risks as with any dedicated server..
    I think there is only 2 options for good hosting:

    1) shared webhosting (business package*) , at least $20/month
    2) paying for a real server.. even a cheap celeron/512mb server runs well if you can handle it

    In my opinion you should go for dedicated server .. However, with your budget of $500/year (50 * $10), VPS should be the second alternative..

    Its hard for you to find a host for that price. I would recommend to increase your budget to somewhat 50 - 60 USD.

    I think if you are going to have 50 accounts with a hosting company you may want to look into some reseller friendly hosts. Typically you can get 30% to 40% off the monthly fees once you get to a certain amount of plans. That may allow you to get a better plan including mssql for about the amount you are willing to pay.

    you are not really gonna get far if you wanna spend just $10 per year per account...

  11. Look at getting a solid VPS server and then you can install whatever you want on it.

    The fact that you're looking for MSSQL server already excludes you from getting something under 10$ per YEAR
