Hi everybody,

I'm developing a personal web site , and I use a database for this web site. I have a general question on web hosting : I would want to kow if , when my web site will be hosted, the web site hosting service will itself create the database and all the tables I use or if it will let me do this.

Thanks in advance for your answers.

Shouldn't you ask the hosting company?

When you complete your web site.

How come they know your database design/requirement ? You have to make one

Be sure to get the mauve database -- it has the most RAM.

Hi,

Thanks to you Eric Pascarello, Sagar Rohankar and Bear Bibeault for your answers.
Answer to Eric Pascarello: Since I've not finished to develop my web site, I've not , for the moment ,choosen a web hosting company.
Answer to Sagar Rohankar: I have scripts to create the database and the tables in it, and I have, on my laptop where I develop my web site, created the database and the tables in it. Perhaps my question was not clear, but the thing I would want to know is : will the web site hosting company take my scripts and run it or will it let me connect to their mySQL and run the scripts myself ?

Thanks very much.

Make sure to clean the database with Ajax or Comet before you use it. We do not want any viruses laying around.

Why don't you ask them, they must have some mail id for inquiry ? And this what Eric said in very first reply

That all depends on the hosting company, and the plan you end up using. Generally, it would be unusual for them to do anything for you, so you should plan on doing it yourself. Whether you will be able to run scripts against the DB also depends on the plan; cheaper plans may not let you log into the DB directly. You may have to write JDBC code to do all that, or use some DB web interface if the host provides one.

Since this seems to be a serious question, this is the wrong forum to discuss this; I'll move it to a more appropriate one.
