PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases
What's the purpose of PostgreSQL databases? What are their advantages? What can they make for your web site?
PostgreSQL is an innovative relational database administration system, which can be used on many platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with many scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). Because it's open-source, it could be freely modified to suit the demands of any developer who works with it. PostgreSQL is also among the most trusted and secure database systems, with significantly better functionality in managing complicated procedures in comparison with similar systems. It is appropriate for large-scale apps since a single PostgreSQL database does not have a limit for the size, while one table can be up to 32 Gigabytes. It is not a surprise that many business, academic and governmental organizations 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 applications that require PostgreSQL databases with each web hosting plan that we offer. The number of databases that you may have at the same time varies and with some plans you'll need to get an extra upgrade, while with others the amount is between 5 and unlimited by default. Should you ever need more databases than the package you've chosen offers, you could upgrade this feature via the Upgrades part of your CP. If you have a free slot, you can create a new PostgreSQL database with several clicks inside the Databases section of your account and in the same location you could also access phpPgAdmin - a feature-rich software tool that will offer you total control over all your databases and it'll permit you to export or import an entire database or only part of it easily.
