PostgreSQL Database Storage
Understand how PostgreSQL database storage functions and the reason why you will need this feature in your own hosting account.
In case you use a database-driven script app for your website, all of the content that you or the site users add, is saved in cells and tables inside a database, not as simple text in the application files. In comparison, HTML sites are static and all the content on such a website is a part of the actual HTML files. An online store app, for instance, takes all items, prices, user reviews, etc, from its database and this is the same for any other script that enables you to build a dynamic website. The more the content you put, the larger the database gets, so if you employ a script-driven site, you need to make sure that your hosting package comes with enough database storage space. The aforementioned applies regardless of what kind of databases you use - for example MySQL or PostgreSQL.
PostgreSQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting
If you choose our shared hosting
services, you will be able to increase the content along with the user base of your PostgreSQL-driven sites as much as you like as some of our plans are provided with unrestricted database storage space. Even if you purchase a lower-end plan, you can update either the database storage feature or the whole package, in order to have sufficient resources for your sites. We employ a custom-made cloud platform and we have an entire cluster dedicated to the database storage. Because no other processes run on these servers, the overall performance is much better and we'll add additional servers or harddisks when they are needed. No matter how many objects you add to your web shop or the number of comments people leave on your forum, you will never encounter any issues as a result of deficiency of database storage space.
PostgreSQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server
from our company, you will take advantage of our powerful cloud hosting platform. As the databases have their separate cluster of servers and do not run on the same machines as the web server or the emails, any script-driven website that you host here will work much better than if it was hosted on a server where a number of processes run. The cloud platform is also the reason why we can afford to offer unrestricted storage for the PostgreSQL databases set up in each semi-dedicated hosting account. You can see the size of the databases you create inside your Control Panel, both the individual for each of them as well as the whole, but you won't be restricted in terms of what amount of space they may take, therefore your PostgreSQL-driven sites can expand without restriction.
