PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases
Find the main differences between Postgre SQL Databases and MySQL databases and see which is better for your site.
PostgreSQL is a sophisticated relational database management system, which you can use on many platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). Because it's open-source, it may be easily modified to fit the needs of any developer who works with it. PostgreSQL is also amongst the the most reliable and secure database systems, with far better functionality in handling sophisticated procedures in comparison with similar systems. It is suitable for large-scale apps because a single PostgreSQL database does not have a limit for the size, while an individual table may be up to 32 GB. It's not a surprise that many business, educational and governmental 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
You may use apps which need PostgreSQL databases with each Linux shared web hosting
that we offer. The number of databases that you can have at one time ranges and with some plans you will need to purchase an additional upgrade, while with others the amount is between 5 and unlimited as standard. Should you ever require more databases compared to what the package you have chosen offers, you may upgrade this feature through the Upgrades section of your CP. If you have a free slot, you may create a new PostgreSQL database with a few mouse clicks inside the Databases section of your account and in the same spot you can also access phpPgAdmin - a feature-rich software instrument which will give you complete control over all of your databases and it'll permit you to export or import an entire database or only part of it with ease.
PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you acquire a semi-dedicated server
package from our company, you shall be able to set up and control PostgreSQL databases with ease and as a part of the standard set of services, not as a paid upgrade. Virtually any script-driven application that needs this kind of a database shall run flawlessly as we use a cloud hosting platform and the databases run on another cluster of servers, not on the same machine in which you will have your website files and e-mails. This way, the overall performance of your websites will increase tremendously as only one kind of processes will run on the machines. Using our in-house built Hepsia CP, you shall be able to access any PostgreSQL database that you have inside the account with the popular phpPgAdmin admin client. The latter will enable you to export, import or change any section of the database through a web-based graphic interface.
