It all depends on what the needs for your site(s) are.
Typically, you use database driven web sites as a means of storing data
separate from the layout and style of your web site. The advantage of this
is that you can just update your data in the database without affecting the
layout and style of your web site. Many developers dynamically serve the
content from a database into the websites using PHP. This is extremely
powerful if you have content which needs to be represented within a table or
if content changes on a regular basis.
There are many books and web articles on this subject.
I hope this helps... my 2 cents...
