PostgreSQL is a sophisticated relational database management system, which can be used on many platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). Due to the fact that it's open-source, it may be easily modified to fit the requirements of any developer who employs it. PostgreSQL is also one of the most efficient and stable database systems, with better performance in managing sophisticated procedures in comparison with similar systems. It's well suited for large-scale apps because a single PostgreSQL database doesn't have a limit for the size, while an individual table can be up to 32 Gigabytes. It isn't a surprise that lots of business, educational and government entities are already working with PostgreSQL - Skype, the University of California, Berkeley and the US Department of Labor being a few examples.
PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases in Web Hosting
You could use apps which require PostgreSQL databases with each and every Linux web hosting we offer. The amount of databases that you can have at a time ranges and with some plans you'll need to buy an additional upgrade, while with others the number is between five and unlimited by default. If you ever need more databases than the plan you've chosen includes, you may upgrade this feature through the Upgrades section of your Control Panel. When you have a free slot, you could create a new PostgreSQL database with a couple of mouse clicks inside the Databases section of your account and in the same spot you can also access phpPgAdmin - a feature-rich software instrument that will provide you with 100 % control over all of your databases and it shall permit you to export or import a whole database or just part of it without any difficulty.
