    Unanswered: shared hosting sql server liscence

    i am getting ready to build the back end for a client server application, using a shared sql server as a back end. microsoft's white pages don't mention shared hosting. i need to know if anyone else has had problems with lisencing in a shared hosting environment. my web host told me i don't need to liscence my users (who will have read write priveledges), but microsoft gave me the impression that i did. anyone know a clear answer?

    No your host is right you don't need to licence
    Sorry to be terse
    some say it's a curse
    I know it's worse
    I'm just diverse

    Based on my understanding of Microsoft licensing and the assumption that your web host has purchased a CPU based "enterprise" or "isp" license from Microsoft, any site that they host can do whatever the host will permit with their SQL Server, without any need for further licensing.
