    Question Are there online services that allow "easy" database connectivity?

    Hi Everyone,

    I am wondering - are there online services that assist a person with 'easily' integrating a database into their website? For example, say I have a website, and I want to add a few hundred products to the the site. If I don't know MySQL, databases, etc., are there any online services that help you easily add products to your site? (Services that charge a monthly fee)

    Another example, would be where I could add products to an online database (or upload and import spreadsheet/csv files) and then have it where I could pull those products down to a website.

    I hope I am making sense. If not, I apologize. I know there are services like Logiforms.com for making online forms....I just wasn't sure if there were services that did the same kind of things for integrating products databases to website.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    I'll start by saying that there are some, I know because I used one for a while a few years ago (I try to keep my costs down to nil when I launch a prototype site and it was cheaper than having a db coded for me). The bad part is that I can't remember what they were called.

    I'll check through my e-mails and see what I can find.

    That sounds like you actually need a pre-written script that provides the functionality that you require. There are plenty of shopping cart scripts around that handle all the backend for you for selling products.
