PostgreSQL is an advanced relational database management system, which can be used on many platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with many scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). As it is open-source, it can be easily modified to suit the requirements of any developer who works with it. PostgreSQL is also amongst the the most reliable and secure database systems, with much better efficiency in managing sophisticated procedures when compared with similar systems. It is ideal for large-scale apps due to the fact that a single PostgreSQL database doesn't have a limit for the size, while one table can be up to 32 GB. It is not a surprise that a number 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
All of our Linux shared plans come with PostgreSQL support, so you will be able to work with every script application that needs this type of a database. With the lower-end packages, setting up a PostgreSQL database is an optionally available upgrade, while with the higher-end ones, a particular number is offered as standard, varying from 5 to unlimited. Whatever the plan which you choose during the signup process, you'll always be able to raise the amount of PostgreSQL databases which you can have through the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel, integrated with each account. Apart from employing a script interface, you shall be able to manage any database in the account using the powerful phpPgAdmin tool as well. The latter may be accessed through the PostgreSQL section of the Control Panel.
PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
Considering the computing power that our Linux semi-dedicated servers offer, you'll have no problem to run large apps which require a PostgreSQL database to save their information. The PostgreSQL support is available by default for every account, not by demand or as a paid upgrade, so the instant your account is active, you can create a new database with 2 mouse clicks inside the PostgreSQL section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Except for working with a script application to control the content in this kind of a database, you shall also be able to employ phpPgAdmin - a sophisticated online tool that'll give you full control over all of your databases. With it, you will be able to export or import any section of your content and run SQL queries through an intuitive graphic web interface.
