Can you be more specific, are you logging onto a domain or a website? If it's a website and it's not throwing errors and it's external, it'll be SHA2

Which password?  The SQL Server password? the contents of the password table? Your user password when you login to a web service?

Most websites do not save the user password but save a salted hash of the password. This way only the user knows the password and if you only have the password hash table then you're done. You'd have to brute force the username and password combination.

If you are talking about the connection between you and a web server then look at the certificate that is presented to your web client (browser)
if you then test the site using ssl labs you will find out the protocols that the server is presenting your web client and the order that they are presented, the first match between the servers list of encryption protocols AND what your client accepts will be used.
