I have VPS MS SQL Server 2008 hosting on GoDaddy.com and I want to open access to a website that is on another VPS and that is hosting on GoDaddy.com as well. What is the best way and how can I do it?

BEST OPTION is using a VPN ipsec between the two.
opening it up to the public is not advisable.
If the VPS are on the same network(IP segment).........

They are not same
arnoldCommented:
What if any control do you have it might be open by default if they provide firewall, you would need to use port forwarding to allow access to the port on which you configured ms sql tcp/ip to listen on.

opening an SQL server to the outside is not advisable, since your VPS is from the same vendor see whether they have and option or can manage the access from one VPS to the other without opening SQL to everyone on the net.
