Hi ...

It's SQL :) ... all you need is one of
the common SQL server products,
and you need to make sure the machine
is open to the outside world on the

Go to and search
for SQL Server ... you'll most likely come
across MySQL and PostgreSQL. MySQL
is more far spread, Postgres is more mature
and has more features, but puts safety before

If you don't want to hand out client applications
you might want to integrate either with apache,
your web-server :)
