Hi everyone.
I am making an application that you need to sign up and login to.
I want to use an online SQL database to store the login information.
I know how to use a local SQL database, but I want to use an online database.
Please help :)

BTW, this is my first post on Daniweb.

Part of any database connection string is the location of the database. If you are using an online or remote database you simply specify the IP address and port number instead of the server name. E.g.

Data Source=190.123.36.12:4333;Initial Catalog=myDataBase;User Id=myUsername;Password=myPassword;
