Installing MSSQL - showing errors on database setup when trying to connect



We are trying to install a MSSQL Database server on our VPS package through cPanel. We've tried entering the host as "localhost", "localhost, 1433" and the server IP - all of which return a network connection error after approx 30 seconds of submitting to setup.


Has anyone come across this issue in the past and can offer guidance on how we can setup MSSQL on our VPS. Licenses are enabled and everything points to the fact that we can have MSSQL running on this VM (including the order form with GoDaddy specifying we needed MSSQL as part of this application/server)


We are seeing these errors:Screen Shot 2017-11-09 at 11.11.14.png
