Thanks for your response. I meant a web hosting company. For example, Network Solutions has a number of web hosting packages.

They specifically mention My SQl and MS Access, not sure why. Suppose I had a web page on a server hosted by a web hosting company, and that this web page accessed my Oracle database. Would generic web space such as that described above be ok?

The reason I ask is that I currently only have the 10 MB of space that comes with my Verizon FIOS. I'm considering getting some more web space such as that hosted by Network Solutions. I might not bother if I thought that it wouldn't work with an Oracle application. I could host the web space on my own computer, but I've heard that that's not recommended, as it attracts attention from crackers. Received on Tue Mar 24 2009 - 17:44:57 CDT
