Go Daddy VDS MSSQL Setup

Help. I have just setup my go daddy VDS and isntalled MMSQL Express. I have also installed the management tools. I am unable to connect to localhost, SQLEXPRESS, IP address from within my tools. When i browse for a server, under local servers, I don't see any installed. However when i go to services. I see the SQL services running.

When connecting, try using your server name + the instance name eg suppose the instance name is SQLEXPRESS
