Hello All;

I am in the process of looking for a new Windows Hosting Provider.
I have looked around and checked several Windows hosting providers
And found out that it would cost me well over $1,600.00 + (Shared Server) to host my 2 domains with multiple sub-domains. (on the cloud and not)

GoDaddy seems to offer a really good plan and they have IIS7 for what I have heard
(I sent them an email, to get all the information that I need and this is one of the questions that I asked was about the IIS version)

What my questions is to those that are currently with GoDaddy.

#1: The SQL Server Management interface
I read that you cannot use SQL Server Management studio, that it is a web interface now for security, which is fine. My question is this.
Does the web interface work similar to SQL Management Studio (or) how different are the 2, and if possible, could someone provide some screenshots of the management system?
And uploading my current sql server database, how hard is this to do using their interface?

          #1b: What version of SQL Server does GoDaddy use?

#2: I read in another thread on here that it is hard to setup new domains and new sub-domains within the management tools, can anyone shed some light on this, as to the difficult level that is contains?

#3: Is there a traffic limit to the hosting package? As in:
Lets say that 1,000 (or) 100,000 people connect to the site at a single time, would they all be able to view the site, or will it error out with a limit issue error?
(I DO NOT need no errors on my site because the con-current use limits are reached)
I read that SQL Server and MySQL server both have different concurrent connections.
SQL Server with ASP and ASP.NET have more than say MySQL does for concurrent connection.
(I do not need no limits) (Information on GoDaddy concurrent connections)
(I close my ASP Recordset connections when I am done and I close my database connection at the footer of my page, so it clears everything once the page is loaded)

(To go with #3)
Lets look at sites that get extreme heavy traffic like: MySpace, Facebook, YouTube and other high profile sites. You are looking at times, these sites getting upwards of 100,000 to as many as it stated in the news last years, of MySpace having 1.5 million users online at a single time.

How are sites like this run so that they can handle this type of traffic (I know it is dedicated servers, but what else is involved) My future plans are going to be hosting inhouse, but just need for funds for that to happen.

If there is anything else that you all would like to add in, I would really appreciate it,

Have a good one.
