When you use a database-driven script application for your website, all content that you or the website users add, is kept in cells and tables inside a database, not as simple text in the app files. In comparison, HTML sites 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, etc, from its database and this is the same for any other script that enables you to build a dynamic site. The more the data you insert, the larger the database gets, so when you use a script-driven site, you need to make sure that your hosting plan features adequate 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
When you select our shared hosting services, you'll be able to expand the content along with the user base of your PostgreSQL-driven sites as much as you will need as a part of our plans are provided with unrestricted database storage space. Even if you purchase a lower-end package, you'll be able to upgrade either the database storage space feature or the entire plan, to have sufficient resources for your websites. We employ a custom-built cloud platform and we've got a whole cluster for the database storage. As no other processes run using these servers, the general performance is way better and we'll add additional servers or hard disks when they're needed. Regardless of how many products you include in your online store or the number of comments users leave on your discussion forum, you'll never experience any issues resulting from lack of database storage space.
PostgreSQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you would like to use PostgreSQL for your websites, you are able to take advantage of our powerful semi-dedicated server packages. Depending on the sites that you wish to have, you can choose between restricted and unrestricted PostgreSQL storage, because a smaller site calls for much less resources, this way you can pay a lower monthly fee. The top-notch plan contains unrestricted storage space and due to the fact that it also features a lot more processing power, you will be able to operate heavy script applications without a problem and without worrying that your sites can grow too much. You are able to manage huge web shops or community forums with thousands of users and regardless of how much their PostgreSQL databases grow, there will be no disorders as a result of getting to some limit. For your information, you can always view the size of each database plus the overall size that all the databases take, yet you will never see any kind of limit in the website hosting Control Panel.
