PostgreSQL is a feature-rich object-relational database management system, that's recognized for being amongst the most secure and reliable systems available. It's cross-platform (Linux, UNIX, Windows, FreeBSD) and cross-language (PHP, Ruby, Java, Perl, Python), that makes it universal and numerous organizations and corporations are already working with it for their products or their own sites - just a few examples are Apple, the US Department of Labor, IMDB.com and Skype. The system is open-source and exceptionally customizable, not mentioning that it is better than other control systems in terms of handling complex operations. Also, the fact that 1 table may be up to 32 GB in size, while the database size is unlimited, makes PostgreSQL an excellent solution for scalable applications.
PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases in Shared Hosting
You can use apps that require PostgreSQL databases with each Linux shared hosting package we provide. The number of databases you can have at a time ranges and with some plans you will need to purchase an optional upgrade, while with others the number is between five and unlimited by default. Provided you ever need more databases than the package you have selected comes with, you can upgrade this feature from the Upgrades part of your CP. Provided you have a free slot, you could create a new PostgreSQL database with a couple of clicks inside the Databases section of your account and from the same place you could also access phpPgAdmin - a feature-rich software instrument which will give you 100 % control over all of your databases and it'll enable you to export or import a whole database or just a part of it without any difficulty.
PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages we provide support PostgreSQL databases, so if you opt for this kind of hosting, you'll be able to set up and run any script-driven platform that requires this type of a database. Different from other hosting Control Panels, the Hepsia tool that is used to manage the semi-dedicated accounts on our end makes it a piece of cake to set up a new PostgreSQL database - all it takes is to input the name and the password, so you'll not need to go through different menus, add users etc. Using the PostgreSQL section of Hepsia you shall also be able to access phpPgAdmin - one of the most efficient and most popular administration tools for this type of databases. It will enable you to export/import a database, modify any content or run SQL statements via a very simple web-based interface.
