PostgreSQL Database Storage
Understand how PostgreSQL database storage operates and the reasons why you need this feature in your web hosting account.
In case you work with a database-driven script application for your site, all of the content that you or the website users add, is stored in cells and tables in a database, not as simple text in the application files. In comparison, HTML sites are static and all of the content on such a website is a part of the actual HTML files. An online store application, for instance, takes all of the items, prices, user reviews, and many others, from its database and this is the same for any other script which allows you to create a dynamic site. The more the content you add, the larger the database gets, so if you use a script-driven site, you need to make sure that your website hosting package includes a sufficient amount of database storage space. The aforementioned applies regardless of what type of databases you employ - for example MySQL or PostgreSQL.
PostgreSQL Database Storage in Website Hosting
We offer a number of Linux website hosting packages
to give you a chance to pick the attributes that you really need and not pay extra for attributes that you won't use. That is why, the PostgreSQL storage space is an optional enhancement that you'll be able to add using your Hepsia Control Panel for some of the packages; with others you'll have a pre-defined quota, while with the top plans you receive unlimited database space. Since you can quickly switch among the plans or upgrade certain features, you can start with a lower-end one then upgrade in case you wish to host PostgreSQL-driven websites. Of course, in case you would like to start this kind of a website from the start, you're able to select the most appropriate plan which features PostgreSQL support by default.
PostgreSQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you choose one of our Linux semi-dedicated packages
, you will be able to manage PostgreSQL websites without having to worry that you can reach any kind of restriction for the size of your databases, as there isn't such a limit. Using our cloud hosting platform, a dedicated group of servers takes care of the databases, which means that if extra processing power or database storage is necessary at any time, we simply add more servers or hard disks. In contrast to many other suppliers, we don't manage everything on a single server. All our plans are powerful and allow you to operate heavy, multi-media sites, so we've made sure that the PostgreSQL database storage space attribute matches all the rest of the capabilities. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel which is included with the semi-dedicated accounts allows you to check out the size of each and every PostgreSQL database which you have along with the full size of all the databases, but these numbers will be accessible solely for your own information.
