When you work with a database-driven script app for your site, all content that you or the site users add, will be saved in cells and tables in a database, not as simple text in the application files. In comparison, HTML websites are static and all the content on such a website is part of the actual HTML files. A web-based store app, for instance, pulls all prices, items, user reviews, and many others, from its database and this is valid for any kind of script which allows you to make a dynamic website. The more the content you insert, the larger the database will get, so in case you use a script-driven site, you should make sure that your website hosting plan comes with enough database storage space. The aforementioned applies regardless of what kind of databases you use - for instance MySQL or PostgreSQL.
PostgreSQL Database Storage in Shared Web Hosting
All our shared web hosting plans were designed with the idea to give you the option to select the most suitable characteristics depending on the type of websites you need to host. If you don't need PostgreSQL databases, for example, you can select a package which doesn't include this system by default. Should you change your mind afterwards or if you want PostgreSQL from the very beginning, you can always order one of the packages that come with PostgreSQL support. The packages provide plenty of storage dedicated to your databases, which means that even if your sites grow, you won't encounter any kind of troubles, since some packages come even with unrestricted space. For the entry-level plans, the PostgreSQL storage will be upgraded with a few clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
PostgreSQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you get one of our Linux semi-dedicated servers, you will be able to manage PostgreSQL sites without worrying that you will reach any kind of limit for the volume of your databases, since there isn't such a restriction. With our cloud web hosting platform, a separate group of servers handles the databases, so in case additional computing power or database storage space is needed at any moment, we simply attach additional servers or hard disk drives. Compared to other companies, we don't manage everything on the very same server. All of our plans are powerful and enable you to operate heavy, resource-consuming sites, so we've ensured that the PostgreSQL database storage feature matches the rest of the attributes. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is provided with the semi-dedicated accounts allows you to see the size of any PostgreSQL database which you have and even the total size of all databases, but these numbers are available solely for your own information.
