PostgreSQL is a sophisticated relational database management system, which can be used on numerous platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with various scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). Because it's open-source, it can be freely modified to fit the demands of any developer who employs it. PostgreSQL is also among the most trusted and secure database systems, with much better functionality in handling complicated procedures compared to similar systems. It's ideal for large-scale apps because a single PostgreSQL database doesn't have a limit for the size, while a single table could be up to 32 Gigabytes. It is not surprising that a number of business, academic and governmental organizations are already working with PostgreSQL - Skype, the University of California, Berkeley and the US Department of Labor being only a couple of examples.

PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases in Shared Hosting

All our shared hosting packages come with PostgreSQL support, so you will be able to employ any script app that needs such a database. When using the lower-end plans, creating a PostgreSQL database is an optional upgrade, while with the higher-end ones, a particular number is offered as standard, ranging from five to unlimited. No matter the plan you choose during the signup process, you will always be able to bring up the number of PostgreSQL databases which you can have via the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with every account. Aside from working with a script interface, you shall be able to handle any database in the account via the highly effective phpPgAdmin tool too. The latter may be accessed from the PostgreSQL section of the Control Panel.

PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you'll be able to set up and handle PostgreSQL databases effortlessly and as a part of the default set of services, not as a paid upgrade. Every script-driven application which requires this sort of a database will run properly as we use a cloud hosting platform and the databases run on another cluster of web servers, not on the same machine where you will have your website files and email messages. In this way, the performance of your sites will improve drastically as only one sort of processes will run on the web servers. Via our in-house built Hepsia CP, you'll be able to log in to any PostgreSQL database you have in the account with the popular phpPgAdmin administration client. The latter allows you to export, import or modify any part of the database using a web-based graphic interface.
