I am wanting to create a form with field for 30 items we are tracking at 3,000 locations. I currently have an windows application in Visual Studio 2010 running on a Dev Sql server. I can click thru them currently but can not search.

I will like to eventually host the have this info stored to a SQL 1and1 database. does anyone see any problems with this?

    Other than never ever using 1and1 hosting, no...  You say windows application, don't you mean web application?

    I was thinking more like an console application.

    If it is a console app, the first thing is to make sure that the database, wherever you put it, is accessible remotely.  Many web hosts do not allow remote access to databases as a security measure to minimize break-ins.

    Making it a web application with a login can work also plus you can easily post updates or information on the web site.  Also gets around the need to make the database remotely accessible.
