You may use a wide range of databases with your Windows 2000 web hosting account. Databases can be used to store almost any type of data, including product information, membership records and customer details.
You can connect your web or WAP site to these databases using Perl/CGI or Active Server Pages. LWD Internet recommend you use Active Server Pages (ASP) where possible.
The following databases are currently supported:
- Microsoft Access
- Plain Text
- Visual FoxPro
You may connect to these using DSN-less connections at no extra cost, or with a system DSN for an extra £10.00 + VAT per year. LWD Internet recommend that you use DSN-less connections, as this allows you to use multiple databases at no additional charge, and allows you to change database names more easily than with a system DSN.
