GoDaddy changed the way the connection is made to MS SQL database only a few days ago. They are no help to me to get connected with my ASP.NET site. Here is the old connection string.
<add name="DbConnStr" connectionstring="Data Source=; Database=DB98067;User ID=DB98067;Password=*******;" providername="System.Data.SqlClient">
And here is the information they provide for connecting to the database:

"You can use these database connection details, for example, when you are asked to specify ones during installation of a web app."
Database name
User name

But I don't know how to modify my connection string with this new information. I tried to replace the IP address with the host name with no success. Can someone guide me to useful information to change the connection string?
I searched without success.

What I have tried:

I tried to insert the host name for the IP address without success.

Thanks. But they just changed it 2 days ago.

GoDaddy support fixed it with a second call. I included the port in the server name which they corrected. I'm sure there are lots of unhappy clients that got no notice of the change. Years ago they deleted my database and I had to reconstruct it. I keep an old backup now.
