PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases
What's the purpose of PostgreSQL databases? What are their advantages? What can they do for your web site?
PostgreSQL is a sophisticated 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). Due to the fact that it is open-source, it could be freely modified to suit the demands of any developer who uses it. PostgreSQL is also one of the most efficient and secure database systems, with significantly better performance in handling sophisticated operations when compared with similar systems. It's well suited for large-scale apps since a single PostgreSQL database doesn't have a limit for the size, while a single table can be up to 32 Gigabytes. It is not a surprise that lots of business, educational and governmental entities are already using PostgreSQL - Skype, the University of California, Berkeley and the US Department of Labor being a few examples.

We shall also offer you the feature-rich phpPgAdmin tool, used to handle the content of PostgreSQL databases.

PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server
plan from our company, you'll be able to set up and handle PostgreSQL databases easily and as a part of the standard set of services, not as a paid upgrade. Any kind of script-driven application that needs this type of a database will run properly as we use a cloud hosting platform and the databases run on a separate cluster of machines, not on the same machine in which you will have your site files and e-mails. That way, the efficiency of your websites shall improve tremendously as only one kind of processes will run on the servers. Through our custom Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to sign in to any PostgreSQL database that you have inside the account with the popular phpPgAdmin admin client. The latter will allow you to export, import or modify any section of the database through a web-based graphic interface.
