PostgreSQL Database Storage
Learn how PostgreSQL database storage works and the reasons you need this feature with your hosting account.
In case you use a database-driven script app for your website, all the content that you or the website users add, is kept in cells and tables within a database, not as ordinary text in the application files. In contrast, HTML websites are static and all the content on such a website is a part of the actual HTML files. A web-based store app, for example, pulls all of the prices, items, user reviews, and many others, from its database and this is the same for any other script that enables you to make a dynamic website. The more the content you insert, the larger the database will get, so when you employ a script-driven site, you need to make sure that your hosting plan comes with sufficient database storage space. The aforementioned applies regardless of what type of databases you are using - for example MySQL or PostgreSQL.
PostgreSQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting
If you choose our cloud hosting
services, you will be able to increase the content and the user base of your PostgreSQL-driven sites as much as you need as some of our plans include unrestricted database storage space. Even if you get a lower-end plan, you'll be able to improve either the database storage space feature or the entire plan, to have enough resources for your sites. We use a custom-built cloud platform and we've got a whole cluster for the database storage. Since no other processes run using these servers, the general performance is much better and we will put extra servers or hard disk drives when they're needed. Regardless of how many elements you add to your online shop or the number of comments users leave on your community forum, you will never encounter any problems because of a shortage of database storage.
PostgreSQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated hosting plans
are ideal to host any kind of PostgreSQL-driven script application. One of the differences between the packages is in the number of databases and the storage for them which you receive, to provide you with an option to select the features that you truly need. For a smaller-sized website, for example, you will not need that many system resources, while for a major portal, a forum with a large number of visitors or an online store with a lot of products you could take advantage of our top-end plan which contains unlimited PostgreSQL database storage space. As the accounts are created on a cloud web hosting platform, all databases run using an independent cluster and they do not share the system resources with the rest of the files. Thus, we achieve two things - much better performance of script sites and virtually limitless database storage.
