SQL Database

I have a question re databases for small businesses.

I'm learning HTML and CSS. I'm not sure whats the process with database storage once someone subscribe to receive the newsletter.

I take I can build in the form with HTML. But then do I use SQL to store and manage data?

If so what are the best SQL databases for small businesses, ideally free ones.

Thank you

If I get your question right you want to be able to store the details of your users when they subscribe. Ideally you cannot store data on an HTML website.

It is either you are collecting the users information via an Email marketer like aweber etc or your website is database-driven and by that your website can be in PHP and databases like Sqlite, PhpmyAdmin will work fine
