PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases
What's the aim of PostgreSQL databases? What are their basic advantages? What could they do for your website?
PostgreSQL is a sophisticated relational database administration system, which can be used on a variety of platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with many scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). Due to the fact that it is open-source, it could be freely modified to fit the demands of any developer who employs it. PostgreSQL is also amongst the the most trusted and stable database systems, with much better performance in handling sophisticated procedures compared to similar systems. It is suitable for large-scale applications due to the fact that a single PostgreSQL database does not have a limit for the size, while an individual table may be up to 32 GB. It isn't a surprise that many business, academic and governmental entities are already employing PostgreSQL - Skype, the University of California, Berkeley and the US Department of Labor being a few examples.
PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to employ PostgreSQL databases with any of the shared web hosting service
we offer you. Depending on the plan that you choose, this function could be available as an optional upgrade or it may be included by default. If you require more PostgreSQL databases as compared with what the plan enables you to have, you may upgrade the amount with a couple of mouse clicks via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel. Because we use a custom cloud platform, all PostgreSQL databases will be managed by their own cluster of servers and this setup will increase even more the performance of any script applications using them. The amazing phpPgAdmin tool, that is available in the Control Panel, allows you to import/export and control all of your databases.
