    What do you mean by "database service"? Python comes with SQLite support to create SQL databases locally. You can also use a more advanced database manager like Postgres. To actually interact with the database though, for SQLite, you can use the built-in SQLite module. You also need to know basic SQL though.

  • Django

    The Web framework for perfectionists with deadlines.

    maybe a python based web framework, such as Django, would be a suitable next step for you. It's all open source, free, very well maintained and documented. It comes with a sqlite database as default, but is fully customisable. Follow the tutorial and - judging from your question - you'd probably have your own site, database and web server running within a day. there's a good r/django subreddit too
