Any server that supports the minimum requirements (see documentation) is fine: from the cheap, shared, hosting solution to the most powerful dedicated server, or even your own laptop.
The applications you build with DaDaBIK are Web applications so you can use them from anywhere, with any modern Web browser, even on a mobile device.

- Users and User Groups
- Secure password storage Users' passwords are encrypted; three password hashing methods (CRYPT_BLOWFISH, CRYPT_EXT_DES and an md5-based method) are available and the system chooses the best one according to what the current environment can provide. All three employ salting, stretching, and variable iteration counts.
- Granular permissions manager For each group you can choose a differnet permissions policy, both at table and field level. For example you can decide that the group "Agents" can view the table "Customers" but can't delete or edit its records; futhermore, you can decide that the group "Agents" can see all the fields of the table while the group "Marketing" just a few.
- Records Ownership The ownership of a record (the user who created a record is considered its owner) can be used as a parameter to authorize some operations: for example you can set that a record can be deleted/modified only by the user (or group) who created it.
- External users list integration DaDaBIK uses by default the table dadabik_users and dadabik_groups to store users information, but you can also use existing user and group tables, even if your users table doesn't use the same password encryption which DaDaBIK uses. This help the integration of DaDaBIK with existing applications, for example with a CMS.
- LDAP authentication Both Open LDAP and Microsoft Active Directory supported. LDAP users are also imported in DaDaBIK to allow permissions setting.
- Permission copy Copy permissions from one users group to another in one click.
- DATA INTEGRITY/SECURITY
- Duplication checking During records insertion, DaDaBIK can be set for checking the similarity of one or more fields with existing records fields, to prevent record duplication. The similarity threshold can be set according to your needs (e.g. 80%).
- Operations logging Insert, Update and Delete SQL queries are optionally logged in a log table. This can help a data recovery procedure in case of data loss.
- Access logging Successful login are logged into a log table, storing username and timestamp
- Records Locking A record which is being edited by a user is not available for editing operation by other users, to prevent data loss.
- HTML sanitization See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTML_sanitization for details about HTML sanitization
