I have been asked whether Homestead can have a database embedded on a page. I don't really know what a SQL server is. What can you tell me?

We can not host a database, but if the database is hosted elsewhere, you should be able to use HTML on your site to access the database.

If it was hosted elsewhere, wouldn't it just be a link? Why would I need to use HtML?

You could link to it. Typically with a database, you need to have some interface where you can enter the search criteria you want. If that is already built on the host, you can link to it. If not, then you can use HTML on your site to create the options for you to search.
