If you like to make a kind of stand alone app with a database, SQLite a
good choice. It is easy to embed into your app. If you keep to ANSI SQL
there should be no trouble changing databases at a later date.
I use SQLite for my WebSite http://IvoNet.nl and it performs great.
The whole database is less than 1Mb including the SQLite module for
python. No 50Mb install needed if you just want a simple database.
It makes my website very portable and easy to install.
MySQL works great to. I have used it a lot and it is very available.
Just about every provider can provide you one.
