A database is an ordered information store. The information is stored
in the form of tables, and the tables are accessed by using database
information access commands. Some common database systems are PostgreSQL,
MySQL, Oracle and MS-Access.
A database driven website is a website that uses a database backend to
gather, display, or manipulate information. A database driven website can
be a simple website with a few pages, or a complex online product store
with thousands of products.
Will it be expensive to design a database driven website?
No. It is recommended to go for a database driven website even for
small websites with static content. A database driven website allows you
to upgrade the content according to your requirements dynamically. Also,
databases like MySQL are available free of cost.
