PostgreSQL is a high level relational database control system, which can be used on numerous platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with many scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). Because it is open-source, it can be easily modified to suit the demands of any developer who works with it. PostgreSQL is also amongst the the most trusted and secure database systems, with significantly better performance in managing complex procedures compared with similar systems. It is suitable for large-scale apps since a single PostgreSQL database doesn't have a limit for the size, while an individual table can be up to 32 GB. It's not a surprise that a number of business, academic and government organizations are already using PostgreSQL - Skype, the University of California, Berkeley and the US Department of Labor being just a few examples.
PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases in Shared Web Hosting
You can use applications that require PostgreSQL databases with each and every shared web hosting service
that we offer. The number of databases that you may have at the same time varies and with some plans you'll have to buy an additional upgrade, while with others the number is between 5 and unlimited as standard. If you ever need more databases than the package you have selected offers, you may upgrade this feature from 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 from the same location you can also access phpPgAdmin - a feature-rich software tool that will provide you with 100 % control over all your databases and it shall permit you to export or import an entire database or just a part of it without any difficulty.
PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server
account through our company, you'll be able to set up and handle PostgreSQL databases with ease and as a part of the standard set of services, not as a paid upgrade. Every script-driven application that needs this type of a database shall run properly as we use a cloud hosting platform and the databases run on another cluster of machines, not on the same machine where you will have your site files and e-mail messages. This way, the efficiency of your sites will increase drastically as only one kind of processes shall run on the web servers. Via our in-house made Hepsia CP, you shall be able to sign in to any PostgreSQL database that you have in the account with the popular phpPgAdmin administration client. The latter allows you to export, import or modify any section of the database through a web-based graphic interface.
