PostgreSQL is an advanced relational database control system, which can be used on many different platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). Due to the fact that it is open-source, it may be easily modified to fit the requirements of any developer who uses it. PostgreSQL is also among the most trusted and stable database systems, with a lot better efficiency in handling sophisticated operations compared to similar systems. It is ideal for large-scale apps since a single PostgreSQL database doesn't have a limit for the size, while an individual table could be up to 32 GB. It isn't surprising that a number of business, educational and government entities 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 Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting include PostgreSQL support, so you'll be able to work with any script application that needs such a database. With all the lower-end plans, creating a PostgreSQL database is an optionally available upgrade, while with the higher-end ones, a certain number is provided as standard, ranging from five to unlimited. Whatever the plan you select through the signup process, you will always be able to increase the amount of PostgreSQL databases you could have via the Upgrades section of the Hepsia CP, integrated with each account. Other than using a script interface, you will be able to control any database inside the account via the powerful phpPgAdmin tool as well. The latter may be accessed through the PostgreSQL section of the Control Panel.
