You may want to consider a professional hosting provider, such as ourselves:
This would gain you the added benefit of being on FileMaker Server Advanced, on true server-class hardware, 24/7 monitored and maintained by an experienced company. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions here or off-list to jmay(at)pointinspace.com
I am currently trying to publish my database over the web. It works fine but only if the host has the database open.
Is there away to access the database over the web, while the database is not open on any other computer?
Any help would be greatly appreciated
No. The database has to be opened. Either on your computer or a hosting service's computer.
