If you want your web site to be able to store and display data from a database, your web server should have access to a database system that uses the SQL language. If your web server will be hosted by an Internet Service Provider (ISP), you will have to look for SQL hosting plans. The most common SQL hosting databases are MySQL, MS SQL Server, and MS Access.
You can have SQL databases on both Windows and Linux/UNIX operating systems.SQL hosting is a kind of professional web hosting.

SQL Server Compact shares a common API with the other Microsoft SQL Server editions. It also includes ADO.NET providers for data access using ADO.NET APIs, and built-in synchronization capabilities, as well as support for LINQ and Entity Framework. Future releases will unify the synchronization capabilities with Microsoft Synchronization Services. Unlike other editions of Microsoft SQL Server, SQL CE runs in-process with the application which is hosting it; while having a memory footprint of less than 2 MB; however, all SQL CE instances share the same memory pool.
With the help of SQL hosting you can make a large database and setting a password for the database file is optional. The database can be compressed and repaired with the option of the compacted/repaired database to be placed into a new database file.
