PostgreSQL is a sophisticated relational database management system, which can be used on many platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with many different scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). Because it's open-source, it can be easily modified to fit the needs of any developer who works with it. PostgreSQL is also among the most reliable and stable database systems, with a lot better efficiency in managing complicated operations compared to similar systems. It is ideal for large-scale apps due to the fact that a single PostgreSQL database does not have a limit for the size, while one table may be up to 32 Gigabytes. It isn't surprising that a number of business, educational and government organizations are already using 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 Web Hosting
You can use apps that require PostgreSQL databases with each and every shared web hosting that we provide. The number of databases that you may have at a time varies and with some packages you will have to acquire an optional upgrade, while with others the number is between 5 and unlimited by default. In case you ever require more databases than the package you've chosen comes with, you may upgrade this feature through the Upgrades part of your CP. Provided 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 from the same place you can also access phpPgAdmin - a feature-rich software instrument that'll provide you with complete control over all of your databases and it will permit you to export or import an entire database or just part of it without any difficulty.
