PostgreSQL is an advanced relational database management system, that you can use on a number of platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). As it's open-source, it can be freely modified to suit the demands of any developer who employs it. PostgreSQL is also one of the most trusted and secure database systems, with far better functionality in managing sophisticated procedures compared with similar systems. It is suitable for large-scale applications since a single PostgreSQL database does not have a limit for the size, while an individual table could be up to 32 GB. It isn't surprising that many business, educational and government entities are already employing PostgreSQL - Skype, the University of California, Berkeley and the US Department of Labor being just a couple of examples.

PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases in Cloud Website Hosting

All our cloud website hosting include PostgreSQL support, so you will be able to employ virtually any script app which requires such a database. With all the lower-end plans, creating a PostgreSQL database is an optionally available upgrade, while with the higher-end ones, a specific number is provided by default, ranging from five to unlimited. Whatever the plan you select during the signup process, you'll always be able to raise the number of PostgreSQL databases you can have from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with every single account. Apart from working with a script interface, you will be able to control any database in the account through the powerful phpPgAdmin tool as well. The latter could be accessed from the PostgreSQL section of the CP.
