I'd like to find out what's the best route to take. I want to build a website for a small company that allows online bookings on vehicles. What's the best database to use and what storage medium may i use as backup?

Most websites use MySQL databases, and most hosting companies have it included in the package you buy.

you can use joomla or wordpress also

AFAIK wordpress is not a database -- it requires MySQL

As for backups -- the hosting company I used had an option to backup the MySQL database onto my local computer's hard drive. From there you can do whatever you want with it. I do not recommend backing up to cloud because of lack of security.

You will find that MySQL and MSSQL are the most common options.

Are you hosting this within the local network or on the Internet?
