PostgreSQL is an advanced relational database control system, which can be used on a number of platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with various scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). As it is open-source, it could be easily modified to fit the needs of any developer who uses it. PostgreSQL is also among the most trusted and secure database systems, with a lot better efficiency in handling complex procedures when compared with similar systems. It's appropriate for large-scale apps because a single PostgreSQL database does not have a limit for the size, while a single table may be up to 32 Gigabytes. It's not a surprise that lots of business, academic and government 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

You may use apps that require PostgreSQL databases with each and every Linux shared hosting that we offer you. The number of databases that you can have at the same time varies and with some packages you will need 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 chosen offers, you may upgrade this feature through the Upgrades section of your Control Panel. Provided you have a free slot, you may create a new PostgreSQL database with a few mouse clicks inside the Databases section of your account and in the same spot you may also access phpPgAdmin - a feature-rich software tool that'll offer you full control over your databases and it'll enable you to export or import a whole database or only part of it easily.

PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you shall be able to set up and manage PostgreSQL databases easily and as part of the default set of services, not as a paid upgrade. Any script-driven application which requires such a database will run perfectly as we use a cloud hosting platform and the databases run on a different cluster of machines, not on the same server in which you will have your website files and email messages. This way, the performance of your sites shall improve tremendously as only one sort of processes will run on the web servers. Through our custom Hepsia CP, you will be able to log in to any PostgreSQL database that you have in the account with the popular phpPgAdmin administration client. The latter will allow you to export, import or modify any part of the database using a web-based graphic interface.
