When you work with a database-driven script application for your site, all of the content that you or the site users add, is saved in cells and tables inside a database, not as plain text in the app files. In contrast, HTML websites are static and all the content on such a website is part of the actual HTML files. A web store app, for instance, pulls all of the items, prices, user reviews, and many others, from its database and this is the same for any other script that allows you to build a dynamic site. The more the data you add, the larger the database gets, so in case you use a script-driven site, you need to make sure that your website hosting plan includes sufficient database storage space. The latter applies no matter what type of databases you employ - for example MySQL or PostgreSQL.
PostgreSQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting
We supply a multitude of Linux shared packages
in order to provide you with a choice to obtain the functions that you really need and not pay extra for functions that you will not use. For this reason, the PostgreSQL storage is an optional improvement that you can add via your Hepsia Control Panel with some of the plans; with others you'll have a certain quota, while with the top packages you receive unlimited database space. Since you can easily switch between the plans or upgrade particular attributes, you may start with a lower-end one and eventually upgrade in case you need to host PostgreSQL-driven sites. Needless to say, in case you want to start such a site from the start, you'll be able to select the most appropriate plan that comes with PostgreSQL support as standard.
PostgreSQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you order one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
, you can run PostgreSQL sites without having to worry that you will get to any sort of restriction for the size of your databases, for the simple fact that there isn't such a limit. Using our cloud website hosting platform, a dedicated cluster of servers handles the databases, thus when extra computing power or database storage space is needed at any moment, we just add more servers or hard disks. Compared to other providers, we do not manage everything on the same server. All our plans are very powerful and enable you to operate heavy, multi-media sites, so we have ensured that the PostgreSQL database storage attribute matches the rest of the capabilities. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel that is included with the semi-dedicated accounts allows you to view the size of each PostgreSQL database you have as well as the overall size of all databases, but these numbers are accessible exclusively for your information.
