Can anyone help me set up a few databases. one will be for names and passwords and the other will be for product line. I am still new to Web design so if you know how to do this or if you know something that would work better I am all ears.

It isn't just that easy bash ... you'll have to use a scripting language like for instance ASP or PHP which you can both learn at http://www.w3schools.com ... but I don't think anyone here is just going to do it for free ...

I never asked anyone to do it for me I just simply asked if anyone knew how and if so could they explain a little about how to do it. I never stated that I wanted someone to do it for me. And my other question was if someone knows how to do what would be the easiest way to learn how...

Allright well there's more to it but partially it depends on which host you have and what they support.

The hosting account I have uses plesk which allows you very easily to setup a database and create a userid / password so that you can manage that database.

Which type of database?
That too depends on the hosting account , MySQL is use by a lot of hosting companies so I'd recommend you start with MySQL. There's also MS SQL which is from Microsoft.

Now that you have a database you need to create tables with fields to store data.

You mentioned one being for names / password. So you could create a table called "NamesInfo" and create 2 fields -- one for name and one for password.

Once you've done that you'll need to use a web programming language like the one that righteous trespasser mentioned --
Php , ASP, or ColdFusion MX -- this will also depend on what your hosting account supports. Most do support PHP and ASP.

Once you select a programming language you'll also need to find out how to write SQL Query Language. This is almost same for the database -- it will allow you to write queries that read data / write data / update data / delete data on your database.

If you're interested in find out more pick up a book with title php/mysql - there are lots of them - I'm sure someone can recommend a good one for you.
