PostgreSQL Database Storage
Learn how PostgreSQL database storage works and the reasons you will need this feature in your web hosting account.
When you work with a database-driven script application for your website, all content that you or the site users add, is saved in cells and tables in a database, not as plain text in the app files. In contrast, HTML websites are static and all of the content on such a website is a part of the actual HTML files. A web-based store app, for instance, takes all items, prices, user reviews, and many others, from its database and this is the same for any kind of script that enables you to make a dynamic website. The more the data you add, the larger the database will get, so if you use a script-driven site, you should make sure that your hosting plan includes sufficient database storage space. The aforementioned applies regardless of what kind of databases you are using - for instance MySQL or PostgreSQL.
PostgreSQL Database Storage in Shared Website Hosting
All our Linux shared website hosting packages
were created with the notion to provide you with the option to choose the ideal characteristics based on the type of sites you'd like to host. If you do not need PostgreSQL databases, for example, you can choose a plan which doesn't feature this system as standard. If you change your opinion eventually or if you'd like to have PostgreSQL from the start, you can choose one of the plans that feature PostgreSQL support. All of the packages provide a large amount of storage space dedicated to your databases, therefore even when your sites expand, you will not encounter any problems, since some plans come even with unlimited space. For the lower-end plans, the PostgreSQL storage will be upgraded with just a few clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
PostgreSQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you buy a semi-dedicated server
through us, you can take advantage of our powerful cloud website hosting platform. Since the databases have their own cluster of servers and don't run on the same machines as the server or the e-mail addresses, any script-driven website which you host here will work much better than if it was hosted on a server where different processes run. The cloud website hosting platform is also the reason why we can offer unlimited storage for the PostgreSQL databases created in each semi-dedicated hosting account. You are able to see the size of the databases you make inside your Control Panel, both the individual for all of them and the entire, but you won't be restricted in terms of what amount of space they may take, so that your PostgreSQL-driven sites can grow without any restrictions.
