When Is A Database Website Appropriate?

You are here:

Database websites are highly suitable for directories and catalogues, where a large number of items all have similar elements.

Take, for example, a modelling agency with hundreds of models on their books.

Each model has the same types of attribute – namely, sex; height; weight; chest size; waist; eye colour; hair colour; shoe size etc.

By putting all the model data into a database, it makes it much easier to extract selected data.

Searching the database enables users to easily quickly and easily find what they are looking for – e.g. show a list of all models who are six foot tall, have blonde hair and blue eyes.
