PostgreSQL is a feature-rich object-relational database administration system, that is famous for being one of the most secure and reliable systems available. It is cross-platform (Linux, UNIX, Windows, FreeBSD) and cross-language (PHP, Ruby, Java, Perl, Python), that makes it universal and a lot of organizations and corporations are already employing it for their products or their own Internet sites - just a few examples are Apple, the US Department of Labor, and Skype. The system is open-source and extremely customizable, not mentioning that it is more advanced than other management systems with regards to handling complicated operations. Moreover, the fact that a single table may be up to 32 Gigabytes in size, while the database size is unlimited, makes PostgreSQL an excellent option for scalable apps.

PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases in Hosting

You can use applications that require PostgreSQL databases with each Linux hosting package that we provide. The amount of databases that you can have at one time varies and with some packages you'll need to purchase an optional upgrade, while with others the number is between 5 and unlimited as standard. If you ever need more databases than the package you've selected features, you may upgrade this feature through the Upgrades part of your Control Panel. Provided you have a free slot, you could create a new PostgreSQL database with a few clicks in the Databases section of your account and in the same location you can also access phpPgAdmin - a feature-rich software tool that will give you full control over all of your databases and it'll permit you to export or import a whole database or only a part of it easily.
