    I'm new to MySQL databases and pretty good with VB.NET. I have a hosting account with Hostgator and I'm in need to create an online database that would store my customers information whenever they fill my forms.

    I have the database setup on the Hosting account but my issue is the interface....do I need to build a web application to linkup the database to the forms or can something like Dreamweaver handle this? so confused..thanks

    It's a lot easier to code the online side in PHP then simply POST the data from the VB.NET application > PHP. Also, you would probably run into a few security flaws letting users connect directly to your database!
