    Hey There,

    What version of MSSQL are you offering in your Windows hosting package? (Web or standard version)

      It is the Express version of MS SQL on both 2008 and 2012.

      Hello, Currently Windows Web Hosting supports MSSQL 2012 only. Fro 2014 or 2016 we would recommend going with a Windows VPS instead.

      Currently SQL server 2012 is the default installed version on windows shared web hosting

      I`d recommend windows VPS to run custom SQL server like 2014 or 2016

    Can I choose a database name freely (if it doesn’t collide with an existing name on the server), or does it always start with a certain prefix?

      Prefix won’t be needed. You can choose a unique database name.
