I've already tried to search the web for the best manner to use a database in a hosted website but did not found anything concrete of relevance.
I developed a website using HTML and CSS and I am planning to connect to a database using classic ASP or .NET C#
My plan is to have a multiple connection base to a database hosted in a website for consultation ONLY. No updates nor adds or deletes.
My question is to know which database system would be the best fit for a website front-end and its requesites. The database will contain at least 3000 records and will not grow. I was also, initially, planning to have 4 distinct databases according to various themes instead of having a full database with all the records but I don't know if this is rather dull or efficient...
I thought about: MS Acess (But then, this is most suitable for distribution and local access) Microsoft SQL Server (But then I read the database must be attached to a MS SQL Server host and many doesn't use it or allow it) XML Database schema (But then I am really not comfortable with it and need to study more about it)
