Using SqlConnection class, you can connect your application with database server. This class is exist in System.Data.SqlClient namespace. ConnectionString is the property of that class, in which you should pass some parameter which is mentioned below in web.config file.

In Web.Config file


<add name="ConnectionString" connectionString="Data Source= (LocalDB)\v11.0;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\Database.mdf;Integrated Security=True;MultipleActiveResultSets=True;Application Name=EntityFramework"
providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />

You can pass the ConnnectionString directly in the .cs file, but here we use web.config file for security purpose because this file is not rendered on the browser.

You can use Initial Catalog for database file name also username and password in place of  Integrated Security.
