PostgreSQL is a feature-rich object-relational database administration system, that is known for being among the most secure and reliable systems available on the market. It's cross-platform (Linux, UNIX, Windows, FreeBSD) and cross-language (PHP, Ruby, Java, Perl, Python), which makes it universal and a lot of organizations and firms are already using it for their products or their own Internet sites - a few examples are Apple, the US Department of Labor, and Skype. The system is open-source and very customizable, not mentioning that it's far better than other management systems with regards to handling sophisticated operations. Also, the fact that one table can be up to 32 Gigabytes in size, while the database size is unlimited, makes PostgreSQL a fantastic option for scalable apps.
PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases in Shared Hosting
You can use applications that require PostgreSQL databases with every single Linux shared hosting that we offer you. The number of databases you can have at the same time ranges and with some plans you will need to get an additional upgrade, while with others the amount is between 5 and unlimited as standard. Should you ever need more databases compared to what the plan you've chosen includes, you could upgrade this feature from the Upgrades section of your CP. Provided you have a free slot, you could create a new PostgreSQL database with a couple of clicks inside the Databases section of your account and from the same place you could also access phpPgAdmin - a feature-rich software instrument that'll give you 100 % control over all your databases and it'll permit you to export or import an entire database or only a part of it with ease.
