  • Sorry, hosting companies are in the business of making money.  What you are asking for simply does not exist.  If you are developing a business, then you are going to have to spend something.  Hosting plans that have SQL Server backends are not that expensive.  I've seen plans that range as low as $20 - $30 per quarter.  You don't get a lot of space and you aren't going to have access to all of the capabilities, because all you are going to have is a database on someone else's instance.  If you are unwilling to spend anything to develop your business, then you aren't ever going to have a business, it is that simple.  Every business ever started had to spend something to get going.

  • It will be very dangerous to let your database server to be accessed through internet directly. Most case, database server is in an intranet and protected by firewall.

  • I don't know of anyone with a "demo" plan.  You either have a hosting plan or you don't.  If you aren't paying someone for the hosting, they aren't going to provide SQL Server or any other space to you.
