PostgreSQL is a high level relational database control 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). As it is open-source, it could be easily modified to fit the needs of any developer who uses it. PostgreSQL is also amongst the the most trusted and stable database systems, with superior functionality in handling complicated operations compared with similar systems. It's ideal for large-scale applications since a single PostgreSQL database doesn't have a limit for the size, while one table can be up to 32 GB. It's not surprising 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 our shared plans come with PostgreSQL support, so you will be able to use every script application which needs this type of a database. When using the lower-end plans, setting up a PostgreSQL database is an optional upgrade, while with the higher-end ones, a specific number is offered by default, ranging from 5 to unlimited. Irrespective of the plan you choose during the signup procedure, you will always be able to bring up the number of PostgreSQL databases you could have from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with every account. Aside from working with a script interface, you'll be able to manage any database in the account using the powerful phpPgAdmin tool as well. The latter may be accessed via the PostgreSQL section of the Control Panel.
