Do You Need a Web Database?

Does My Web Site Require A Web Database?

If your web site require constant updates and feeding of information, a web database is the solution. In short, this applies to web sites that handle online products, news feed, members- based subscription and other functions as well. Not only can a database provide easier access to information, it also automates most of your daily tasks. For example, running an book store requires massive amount of efforts in inventory and updating. However, if you have a database to play around with, you can actually hook up your online book store with your existing brick-and-mortar shop. Get a couple of scanning equipment and PC, updating your online book store can never be easier than scanning the barcodes!

Building Your Own Database

Sure, you can make your own web database if you know a little about programming. It is mostly hard work with tons of programming to do and not difficult as long as you have an adequate level of programming background. One thing to note is: your database requires robust database security measures to be set up. For those who are determined to give it a shot, there are many online forums that offer helpful tips and support in database building.

Choosing Your Database Language

There are many web database languages to choose from for your web site- SQL server, Access and MySql are the more popular ones. Each web language has its own strengths and limitations.

A popular choice of database language is MySql which is also an open source language.
