PostgreSQL is a feature-rich object-relational database control system, which is famous for being among the most stable and reliable systems out there. It is cross-platform (Linux, UNIX, Windows, FreeBSD) and cross-language (PHP, Ruby, Java, Perl, Python), that makes it universal and numerous organizations and corporations are already using it for their products or their own web sites - just a few examples are Apple, the US Department of Labor, IMDB.com and Skype. The system is open-source and very customizable, not mentioning that it's far better than other control systems when it comes to handling sophisticated operations. In addition, the fact that 1 table may be up to 32 GB in size, while the database size is unlimited, makes PostgreSQL an incredible option for scalable applications.
PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases in Shared Hosting
You may use apps which require PostgreSQL databases with every single Linux shared hosting service that we offer. The number of databases you can have at the same time ranges and with some packages you will have to get an additional upgrade, while with others the number is between 5 and unlimited as standard. Should you ever need more databases compared to what the plan you have chosen includes, you could upgrade this feature via the Upgrades part of your Control Panel. Provided you have a free slot, you can create a new PostgreSQL database with a couple of mouse clicks inside the Databases section of your account and in the same spot you can also access phpPgAdmin - a feature-rich software instrument that will offer you complete control over all your databases and it'll allow you to export or import a whole database or only part of it effortlessly.
PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you acquire a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to create and control PostgreSQL databases without difficulty and as a part of the default set of services, not as a paid upgrade. Any sort of script-driven application that needs such a database will run properly as we use a cloud hosting platform and the databases run on a different cluster of web servers, not on the same machine where you will have your website files and e-mail messages. This way, the efficiency of your sites will increase considerably as only one sort of processes shall run on the machines. Using our in-house built Hepsia CP, you'll be able to access any PostgreSQL database which you have inside the account with the popular phpPgAdmin administration client. The latter allows you to export, import or change any part of the database via a web-based graphic interface.
