Is it possible to use ACCESS databases on my webhosting account?

Microsoft does not recommend using Access-databases on homepages with a lot of traffic. See the following article for more details about why Microsoft chose not to recommend this:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/299973

Because of the complications mentioned in the article mentioned above, Surftown has chosen not to actively support issues related to the ODBC driver for Access. When the ODCB-driver fails for some reason, it will not be possible to solve this issue, without restarting the server and cause major problems for all other customers on this particular server.

Access-databases do work on our servers, but we strongly recommend to not use them for homepages.

Instead we recommend storing your data in a MSSQL-database, which is included in every Windows webhosting account.
