PostgreSQL is a sophisticated relational database administration system, that you can use on a number of platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with various scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). Due to the fact that it's open-source, it could be easily modified to fit the demands of any developer who uses it. PostgreSQL is also one of the most efficient and secure database systems, with far better performance in handling sophisticated operations when compared with similar systems. It's ideal for large-scale applications due to the fact that a single PostgreSQL database doesn't have a limit for the size, while an individual table may be up to 32 Gigabytes. It's not surprising that a number of business, educational and government organizations are already working with PostgreSQL - Skype, the University of California, Berkeley and the US Department of Labor being a few examples.
PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases in Shared Hosting
All of our shared hosting include PostgreSQL support, so you'll be able to use any script app which needs this kind of a database. When using the lower-end packages, setting up a PostgreSQL database is an optionally available upgrade, while with the higher-end ones, a specific number is provided by default, ranging from five to unlimited. Irrespective of the package which you choose during the signup procedure, you will always be able to bring up the amount of PostgreSQL databases which you can have from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with each account. Other than employing a script interface, you'll be able to handle any database in the account using the amazing phpPgAdmin tool as well. The latter could be accessed through the PostgreSQL section of the CP.
