All websites that contain a lot of data would benefit from a database to store that data. Some websites require many databases to store lots of different types of data. Knowledge of programming is necessary to set up website databases. We offer that expertise so contact your Hertfordshire web designer.
All websites that are using a database require database design to run and maintain the database. One popular database language is MySQL.
The main thing you need to consider when designing a database is what data is going to be used. Then you need to determine the relationship between the data in the database. This can be arranged in a flat file system or a hierarchical system.
If the database is really well designed, then not only will it cater for the current requirements, but it will be easy to adapt to cater for future, unforseen requirements too.
Dynamic websites use server side scripting language like PHP and are database driven. So if the data or content in the database is altered then the relevant webpage will also be updated. For instance if prices of products change, they can be updated in the database and automatically update wherever they feature on the website.
