PostgreSQL is an advanced relational database management system, that you can use on a number of platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with many scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). Because it is open-source, it may be freely modified to fit the demands of any developer who employs it. PostgreSQL is also among the most trusted and secure database systems, with much better efficiency in handling complicated procedures compared with similar systems. It's appropriate for large-scale applications because a single PostgreSQL database does not have a limit for the size, while a single table could be up to 32 GB. It's not a surprise that many business, academic and government organizations are already employing PostgreSQL - Skype, the University of California, Berkeley and the US Department of Labor being just a few examples.
PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases in Shared Web Hosting
All our Linux shared web hosting feature PostgreSQL support, so you'll be able to use every script app which requires this kind of a database. When using the lower-end packages, creating a PostgreSQL database is an optionally available upgrade, while with the higher-end ones, a certain number is provided by default, varying from five to unlimited. Whatever the package which you pick during the signup process, you'll always be able to bring up the amount of PostgreSQL databases that you can have via the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel, included with each account. Besides working with a script interface, you'll be able to handle any database inside the account using the powerful phpPgAdmin tool as well. The latter could be accessed via the PostgreSQL section of the Control Panel.
