PostgreSQL is a feature-rich object-relational database administration system, that's recognized for being amongst the most secure and dependable systems on the market. It's cross-platform (Linux, UNIX, Windows, FreeBSD) and cross-language (PHP, Ruby, Java, Perl, Python), that makes it universal and numerous organizations and firms are already employing it for their products or their own Internet sites - a few examples are Apple, the US Department of Labor, and Skype. The system is open-source and highly customizable, not mentioning that it is better than other control systems in terms of handling sophisticated operations. Moreover, the fact that 1 table can be up to 32 Gigabytes in size, while the database size is unlimited, makes PostgreSQL an excellent option for scalable applications.
PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases in Shared Hosting
Our Linux shared hosting packages include PostgreSQL support, so you shall be able to employ virtually any script application that needs this kind of a database. With the lower-end plans, setting up a PostgreSQL database is an optional upgrade, while with the higher-end ones, a certain number is offered by default, ranging from 5 to unlimited. Irrespective of the plan you pick through the signup process, you will always be able to increase the number of PostgreSQL databases that you may have via the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel, integrated with every account. Besides working with a script interface, you will be able to manage any database in the account through the efficient phpPgAdmin tool as well. The latter may be accessed via the PostgreSQL section of the Control Panel.
PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you shall be able to set up and control PostgreSQL databases with ease and as part of the standard set of services, not as a paid upgrade. Virtually any script-driven application that requires such a database will run perfectly as we use a cloud hosting platform and the databases run on a separate cluster of web servers, not on the same server where you will have your site files and e-mails. In this way, the overall performance of your websites will improve tremendously as only one type of processes will run on the web servers. Via our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to log in to any PostgreSQL database that you have in the account with the popular phpPgAdmin admin client. The latter allows you to export, import or modify any portion of the database via a web-based graphic interface.
