When you use a database-driven script app for your website, all content that you or the website users add, is saved in cells and tables in a database, not as plain text in the application files. In contrast, HTML websites are static and all the content on such a site is part of the actual HTML files. A web store app, for example, takes all the prices, items, 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 information you insert, the larger the database becomes, so if you employ a script-driven website, you have to make sure that your website hosting package includes a sufficient amount of database storage space. The latter applies regardless of what kind of databases you are using - for example MySQL or PostgreSQL.
PostgreSQL Database Storage in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you choose our cloud web hosting services, you'll be able to increase the content as well as the user base of your PostgreSQL-driven websites as much as you will need as a part of our plans include unlimited database storage. Even if you acquire a lower-end package, you can upgrade either the database storage space feature or the whole package, in order to have sufficient resources for your sites. We use a custom-built cloud platform and we've got a whole cluster for the database storage. Because no other processes run on these servers, the general performance is better and we can easily add more servers or HDDs when they're needed. Regardless of how many items you include in your web store or how many comments users leave on your community forum, you will never encounter any problems resulting from limited database storage space.
PostgreSQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you'd like to use PostgreSQL for your sites, you'll be able to reap the benefits of our powerful semi-dedicated server packages. Based on the websites that you intend to have, you can choose between limited and unlimited PostgreSQL storage, because a smaller website needs much less resources, and as a result you can pay a smaller monthly fee. The top-end package includes unlimited storage space and due to the fact that it also contains much more processing power, you will be able to run heavy script apps without any problems and without having to worry that your sites will grow way too much. You're able to run large web stores or message boards with thousands of users and irrespective of how much their PostgreSQL databases grow, there will be no interruptions as a result of getting to some limit. For your information, you'll always be able to see the size of every single database as well as the whole size that all of the databases take, but you'll never see any sort of limit in the web hosting Control Panel.
