I need some help i am working on a project and need to deploy my application which currently has a database running on SQL Server 2008 and my software is developed in VB.Net, The client needs to deploy the application to various regions and inter-connect the application. I found it tricky how can i inter-connect my application over the internet or rather place SQL Server online on the internet as the client is NOT interested with SQl Azure or any of those kind of services.
As per my application i know i can play with a few setting and get it connected online i have tested it and it worked! But how to make SQL Server online? Do i need to get a domain? and how to configure it?
I have researched online and didn't get much help so thought to put up this post in case someone would help me.
