10 Largest Databases in the World. Really? Sure about that? How do you actually know if it’s true? Who is the source of information, and can we trust it in 2016? (See the Top 10 List below). Let’s explore some of this information. But first of all, what is a database related to a website? A database driven website is a website that has most of its webpage content in a database. Therefore, the website content isn’t actually sitting in files on the server, it is sitting in tables and columns in a database. A website with its content stored on the file system is often referred to as a static website, whereas a database driven website is often referred to as a dynamic. How websites work with databases: One of the most useful applications of the Web is its capability to link a website with a database so web surfers can search for information. Not only can the Web serve up data, it can also collect it. For example, many websites ask users to “register” their names, addresses, and other demographic information, which is then captured and stored in a database.
