    How to Connect to sql server with management studio

    I would like to know how to create a subdomain that is a link to an SQL Server database. I have Windows Server 2008 R2 and SQL Server 2008. I have a static IP on the Windows server, and I have a domain at with the A host record pointing to the static IP.
    I can successfully establish a remote connection to the SQL Server instance through SQL Server Management Studio. But I have to use the instead of something like, which is what I would prefer to use.

    For another example, if I create a SQL database at some web host like they give me an external link to my DB like That is what I'm trying to replicate.

    I would get with bestcloudhosting (I think I understand that these guys are hosing your virtual network) and ask them if they can associate a CNAME to your Server's static IP/Endpoint. I am going to guess you will need to create a CNAME with asphostportal (I guess these guys are the Domain Name registrar).

    Talk to the folks hosting the virtual network and let them know who you registrar is. It is likely they will know if the registrar offers the ability to create a CNAME. They will probably even have a little tutorial.

    That is how I have done it. The people hosting the hardware use the CNAME that is generated by the registrar.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
