    Windows Hosting Providor - Looking for a very small package, learning databases

    I've spent quite a lot of time recently learning databases and I've currently sitted the first 4 hours to a 10 hour database exam for one of my a levels.

    I would like to put my new knowledge to good use and maybe make a basic forum script for the internet using an access database.

    Therefore I require a very small windows based hosting plan. I'd like to spend no more than about $3-6 a month. Any solid recommendations?

    Hello

    if you require a MS SQL database, you will really be wanting to increase your budget! think about it, if MS SQL 2005 costs around $300 month per CPU, for a hosting company to make that back, their not going to be able to bundle it for $3

    Well, I don't really know what the costs are...I just would like the smallest plan I can get really..for the moment. Not sure if i'd be using msSQL as I'd be using access.

    I've only currently designed databases with forms and not a web interface.

    Access is really, really terrible for web applications that will have multiple users accessing it simultaneously. You are much better off using MySQL, as it's not going to increase your hosting costs where as MSSQL will.

    When I was first learning about databases I found it worked well to set up a server on my PC and do the development there - was good experience learning how to it all up. But I guess you might have done that already...

    I'm sure it is...I only want to try and do some web form things for it and be able to modify the database online. It's just so I can learn a bit more for it really..hence my tight-arse budget .
