Hi,

Can we use Windows hosting of one Hosting provider and MS SQL database from other hosting provider?
If yes, is it OK to have such an arrangement?

Really appreciate your response!

Yes, you can have it but cons will outway the pros.

If you are thinking in terms of security then it would be advisable to buy a security certificate for your website.

AsishRaj,

I have a security certificate. But the thing is, I have ended up buying two web hosting packages (dont ask me why). The new webhosting package requires me to pay seperately for ms sql database.

Hence I was thinking of using ms sql database which I had from my previous web host.

Keeping above situation in mind, what according to you, would be the problems that I need to be aware of?

Thanks!

The web hosting packages are from two different web hosting companies...

if thats the case you can ask for money back as i am sure they should have given you a money back option.

meetpd,

the biggest issue would be speed.  your queries will be faster if they are with the same hosting companies.  Dpending on your application, it might not be an issue.
