Do you allow remote MSSQL access?

Yes. We do allow remote access to the MSSQL. It is offered on the regular port 1433.

What address should we use to connect to MS SQL ???

RESPONSE: Please use your domain name if it is already propagating to your site or the server address ( where server_name is the name of the server outlined inside your setup email)

You can simply do so through the control panel under MSSQL Databases -> Restore.

What about securing the remote connections to MSSQL? Are queries made from my local machine to Arvixe's servers encrypted? If not, how can this be activated? Are there any relatively simple workarounds?

The purpose of running connections over SSL is to prevent outside users who are on your same network from sniffing, capturing and then reading transmissions that have been sent in plain text across a large distance, several routers for example or by an unsecured wireless network. The database connection occurs directly on the server, it is made from the server to the server so the only person who would be able to accomplish that type of activity would be one of our Administrators who was actively logged into the server, and they would have access to read your data regardless so using SSL over database connections is usually unnecessary. Our shared accounts do not provide SSL enabled SQL connections at all, but with a VPS or dedicated server you could set that up.

Has the status of SSL enabled remote connections to SQL Server changed for shared hosting since the reply from Sept 2012? (E.g. support for including the Encrypt=True argument in the connection string.)

No, our polices have not changed. If you are having a particular problem that you would like me to look at, feel free to email qa [at]

Hi, I need to securely host a SQL Server database for remote connection across the internet. Normally, I would look to a VPN or SSL connection to do this. Since I am hosting a database on, how do I insure that my remote connection to the database is done in a secure fashion? Also, since your servers use the default of 1433 for SQL Server connections, this is a known attraction to hackers who constantly scan for this port, attempting to break into databases exposed on this port. Can you tell me how insures my remote connections to my database stay secure, unhacked and unharassed by malevolent entities on the internet? Thanks for a great service, by the way!

Anyone who attempts to break into a service on the server by brute forcing passwords is permanently blocked by the servers firewall. The best thing you can do to secure your data is to use a random username and password for access via port 1433.
