In case you use a database-driven script app for your site, all content that you or the website users add, will be kept in cells and tables within a database, not as plain 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. An online store app, for instance, pulls all of the prices, items, user reviews, etc, from its database and this is valid for any kind of script that allows you to make a dynamic site. The more the content you insert, the larger the database becomes, so when you use a script-driven website, you have to make sure that your web hosting package comes with enough database storage space. The latter applies regardless of what kind of databases you are using - for example MySQL or PostgreSQL.
PostgreSQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting
When you select our shared hosting services, you will be able to expand the content and the user base of your PostgreSQL-driven websites as much as you would like since a part of our packages come with unlimited database storage space. Even if you start with a lower-end plan, you can always update either the database space feature or the whole package, so as to have sufficient resources for your sites. We use a custom-made cloud platform and we have an entire cluster dedicated to the database storage. Since no other processes run using these servers, the general performance is much better and we can easily put extra servers or hard drives when they're needed. No matter how many objects you add to your online shop or the number of comments people leave on your forum, you will never experience any issues caused by insufficient database storage.
PostgreSQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you would like to use PostgreSQL for your websites, you'll be able to benefit from our powerful semi-dedicated server packages. Based upon the websites that you wish to have, you can choose between limited and unrestricted PostgreSQL storage space, since a smaller website needs a reduced amount of resources, and as a result you can pay a lower fee every month. The top-end package has unlimited storage space and because it also features significantly more processing power, you'll be able to operate heavy script applications without a problem and without having to worry that your websites can expand past an acceptable limit. You're able to run huge virtual stores or discussion boards with lots of users and irrespective of how much their PostgreSQL databases grow, there will be no interruptions caused by reaching some limit. For your convenience, you'll always be able to view the size of every single database and the whole size that all databases take, however you'll never see a limit in the hosting Control Panel.
