HostPapa operates strictly in a Linux operating system environment and does not use or support any Microsoft Windows operating systems-based servers at this time.
As a result, we do not support or offer Microsoft MSSQL-based applications or databases.
However, as an alternative, our customers find that the MySQL Open Source database product with PHP is suitable for the vast majority of their needs.
