PostgreSQL is a high level relational database management system, that you can use on many different platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). Due to the fact that it is open-source, it can be easily modified to fit the requirements of any developer who employs it. PostgreSQL is also amongst the the most efficient and stable database systems, with significantly better functionality in managing complicated operations compared with similar systems. It's ideal for large-scale apps as a single PostgreSQL database doesn't have a limit for the size, while an individual table could be up to 32 Gigabytes. It is not a surprise that lots of business, academic and government entities are already employing PostgreSQL - Skype, the University of California, Berkeley and the US Department of Labor being a few examples.

PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases in Cloud Website Hosting

You could use apps that need PostgreSQL databases with every single Linux cloud website hosting we offer. The amount of databases that you may have at a time varies and with some plans you'll need to buy an extra upgrade, while with others the number is between five and unlimited as standard. In case you ever require more databases than the plan you have selected comes with, you can upgrade this feature from the Upgrades part of your CP. When you have a free slot, you could create a new PostgreSQL database with a couple of mouse clicks in the Databases section of your account and in the same spot you may also access phpPgAdmin - a feature-rich software instrument that'll provide you with total control over all your databases and it will allow you to export or import an entire database or just part of it with ease.
