PostgreSQL Database Storage
Learn how PostgreSQL database storage works and the reason why you need this feature inside of your hosting account.
In case you use a database-driven script application for your site, all of the content that you or the website users add, will be stored in cells and tables inside a database, not as plain text in the application files. In comparison, HTML sites are static and all of the content on such a site is a part of the actual HTML files. An online store app, for example, pulls all of the prices, items, user reviews, etc, from its database and this is valid for any kind of script which allows you to create a dynamic site. The more the data you insert, the larger the database gets, so if you employ a script-driven website, you need to make sure that your website hosting plan comes with adequate database storage space. The aforementioned applies regardless of the kind of databases you use - for instance MySQL or PostgreSQL.
PostgreSQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting
All of our shared hosting
were developed with the concept to give you the opportunity to pick the ideal characteristics based on the type of websites you need to host. If you don't need PostgreSQL databases, for instance, you can select a plan that doesn't include this system as standard. Should you change your mind at a later time or if you'd like to have PostgreSQL from the start, you can order one of the plans that feature PostgreSQL support. All of the plans feature sufficient storage space for your databases, so that even when your websites grow, you will not have any problems, since some packages come even with unrestricted space. For the lower-end packages, the PostgreSQL storage will be upgraded with just a few clicks through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
PostgreSQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you order one of our semi-dedicated servers
, you will be able to manage PostgreSQL websites without worrying that you'll reach any limit for the volume of your databases, since there isn't such a restriction. When you use our cloud website hosting platform, a dedicated group of servers handles your databases, thus when extra computing power or database storage space is required at any time, we just link extra servers or HDDs. Compared to various other companies, we do not manage everything on the very same server. All our plans are quite powerful and enable you to operate heavy, resource-demanding sites, so we've made sure that the PostgreSQL database storage feature matches the rest of the characteristics. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is included with the semi-dedicated accounts allows you to see the size of each and every PostgreSQL database which you have as well as the total size of all of the databases, and these numbers are accessible solely for your own information.
