PostgreSQL Database Storage
Understand how PostgreSQL database storage operates and the reasons you need this feature within your web hosting account.
When you use a database-driven script application for your site, all the content that you or the site users add, will be kept in cells and tables within a database, not as simple text in the app files. In contrast, HTML sites are static and all the content on such a website is part of the actual HTML files. An online store app, for instance, takes all the items, prices, user reviews, etc, from its database and this is valid for any other script that allows you to create a dynamic website. The more the information you add, the larger the database will get, so in case you employ a script-driven website, you have to make sure that your website hosting plan includes adequate database storage space. The aforementioned applies no matter what type of databases you use - for instance MySQL or PostgreSQL.
PostgreSQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting
We provide a number of Linux cloud hosting packages
to provide you with a chance to get the characteristics that you actually need and never pay extra for functions that you will not use. For that reason, the PostgreSQL storage space is an optional improvement which you will be able to add using your Hepsia Control Panel for some of the plans; with others you get a pre-defined quota, while with the top packages you receive unlimited database storage space. Because you can quickly switch between the plans or upgrade specific attributes, you can start with a lower-end one and eventually upgrade in case you want to host PostgreSQL-driven sites. Of course, if you need to start such a website from the beginning, you will be able to choose the most appropriate plan that has PostgreSQL support by default.
