Philippine web hosting packages offer one or more databases. Literally, a database stores data but the most important thing about database is it allows data to be easily accessed. There are many forms of data, it can be sales records, customer names and addresses, product details or even the little information that appears on web pages. By using a database, it aids in retrieving all the information to better assists your visitors. It will also provide a more interactive experience.
The basic use of databases in the Internet world is to handle information vigorously as it is requested by visitors. For instance, in a large eCommerce site, the database maintains all the actual product information so when it comes to updating the site it is just a matter of changing the data. Without this system, it would be a hassle to the website managers for they have to produce static pages for every product. And if your dealing with hundreds of products, surely this task would be almost impossible to handle in an effective process.
