Indexes are special lookup tables that can be used by the database search engine to speed up data retrieval. An index is just a reference to data in a table. A database index is analogous to the index in the back of a book.

Indexes are used to get data from a database faster than would otherwise be possible. The indexes are hidden from the users and are only used to speed up searches and queries. It's worth noting that updating a table with indexes takes longer than updating a table without them (because the indexes also need an update).

Individual lookup tables, known as indexes in SQL, are employed by the database search engine to speed up total data retrieval. An index in the table is used to speed up the total time it takes to search the database for specific data.

A SQL index is a quick lookup table for locating records that are often searched. An index is a data structure that is tiny, fast, and optimised for speedy lookups. It's great for linking relational tables and searching huge databases. It's worth noting that generating a primary key does not automatically result in the creation of a unique SQL index.

By generating pointers to where data is kept within a database, indexing makes it easier to query columns. Assume you need to locate a specific piece of data in a vast database. To retrieve this data from the database, the computer will search every row until it finds it.
