Starting a data-driven site...
I am planning a data-driven site but money is a huge issue (i.e. dedicated server, etc is out of the question) . It's going to be a .org so you can imagine the money that is flowing in, right? What's the cheapest option? This isn't mission critical stuff we are talking about here, a little down time here and there is no big deal.
So under this "cheap" option, where would the database reside? Could like a MySQL file just sit on your site in a folder. I am opening myself up here...sorry. Don't know these back-end things.
There are a million companies that you can pay like $15 to $40 a month for hosting and get yourself a pretty kick-*** static site. So now you want to bring a database (let's say MySQL) into play, do those prices still generally apply?
What do most people do in this situation? Low traffic, data-driven, etc...
I am lost...Sorry to be so vague, but I have to start somewhere...
