PostgreSQL is a high level relational database management system, which you can use on many different platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with many scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). As it's open-source, it could be freely modified to match the requirements of any developer who employs it. PostgreSQL is also one of the most trusted and stable database systems, with better performance in handling complicated operations compared to similar systems. It is suitable for large-scale applications as a single PostgreSQL database does not have a limit for the size, while one table can be up to 32 Gigabytes. It's not surprising that many 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 Hosting

You may use apps that require PostgreSQL databases with each and every shared plan that we offer you. The amount of databases that you can have at the same time ranges and with some packages you'll have to buy an extra upgrade, while with others the amount is between 5 and unlimited by default. In case you ever need more databases compared to what the package you have chosen includes, you can upgrade this feature via the Upgrades section of your CP. When you have a free slot, you can create a new PostgreSQL database with a few mouse clicks inside the Databases section of your account and in the same place you could also access phpPgAdmin - a feature-rich tool which will provide you with full control over all of your databases and it'll permit you to export or import a whole database or only a part of it easily.
