    i have a .net project that requires this.

    requirements:
    - windows 2003
    - mssql 2005
    - least 5 gigs of db space

    i need to go the shared route only because the project im currently working on doesn't generate that much traffic.
    thanks

    Ive been using ourinternet.us for almost a decade now.
    They have been great for all my hosting needs and service is awesome.
    I can vouch for their linux vps, windows dedicated and linux shared, but cant say Ive used their windows shared before.
    Give em a try.

    it seems like there is a limitation as to how much db space there is on a share windows server?
    i'm seeing packages running with very low db space under 100megs.
    is this so? why?

    i chatted with sales and they are telling me that they "think" it's unlimited.

    o'rly, unlimited db space? :hsugh:
    i told them, if you can get that to me in writing and on a company letterhead then i'll sign up for their service.
    i'm still waiting to hear back from them.

    ive never seen shared hosting quote size limits on DB space, but what do i know.
    I am sure if its for development work and the load on the server isnt an issue, i dont see why they would raise a stink.
    If you have any problems with them let me know, I can contact the owner personally and give you and edge.

    pick up a decent windows 2003 server for like $250/month and just toss on an 'acquired' version of mssql.
