Good morning all.

I just tried for the first time to use my SQL Server 2012 Express instance to connect to my web hosting's SQL Server. A message displays that reads: Cannot connect to 'server' Additional information. Logon failed for user theUser.

Should I be able to connect to my webhost's SQL Server with SQL Server 2012 Express?

I am a little unclear on the question. Is it that you have installed SQL 2012 Express Management Studio and you are trying to connect to a remote SQL Server using that? You should be able to, if the SQL Server is SQL 2012 or earlier version.

Are you able to connect to that remote server from anywhere using any other method?

Hello James. Yes I was trying to connect to a remote server using SQL 2012 Express Management Studio. I was able to do it. I was supplying incorrect information during login. Thanks.
