I want to set up a web server with database.  What does Oracle database really cost?  The Oracle Store at Oracle.com lists different prices for users, enterprise, etc..

All i want to do is set up a website that can be accessed by many people.

Do you really need Oracle?  It's quite expensive but worth it if you need a high powered and sophisticated database system.  There are a number of alternatives that might be less expensive and more in keeping with your needs (although you haven't said what your requirements are, I'm assuming that since you are asking about price, that a high-end DB is not what you need).

Some other high-end systems that might be less expensive are:

Microsoft SQL Server

Some lower end tools which might serve you well at a lower price:

Microsoft Access
Mircosoft FoxPro

Of course, this is not an exhaustive list by any means and there are many others.
