Hi There,

I would like to explain the scenario, we want to use the Cloud dedicated hosting. We want to create a database online then push and pull data from it via MSSQL. There will be users logging into a web interface also hosted on the same server, then submitting data that will be saved on the cloud hosted MSSQL.

There could be up to a 100 users signed into the web interface at any moment.

* What would be the best and cheapest cloud hosting package that will work for this scenario?

* What will the MSSQL Licensing costs be, and will it be per user logged in?

* It should be a windows server, as there will not be development done for linux.

* Extra development might be done after, will the server cater for this?

Kind Regards,

For what you want to do;

Afrihost will only supply you with the cloud server and any operating system that you pick for installation. There is a license fee for any of the Windows OSs that you pick. As for the MSSQL license, you will need to get that on your own from any other third party website that supplies these.

Connections to the server will be dependant on your server and app settings. Your server resources and CPU will also determine if your app will hold.
