In case you use a database-driven script app for your site, all the content that you or the site users add, will be stored in cells and tables in a database, not as ordinary text in the app files. In contrast, HTML sites are static and all of the content on such a website is a part of the actual HTML files. A web-based store application, for instance, pulls all of the items, prices, user reviews, etc, from its database and this is valid for any other script that allows you to build a dynamic website. The more the info you include, the larger the database will get, so in case you employ a script-driven site, you need to make sure that your hosting package features sufficient database storage space. The latter applies regardless of the type of databases you use - 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 as well as the user base of your PostgreSQL-driven websites as much as you would like as some of our plans are provided with unlimited database storage. Even if you buy a lower-end package, you can always update either the database space feature or the whole plan, so as to have sufficient resources for your sites. We use a custom-built cloud platform and we have an entire cluster for the database storage. Because no other processes run on these servers, the general performance is much better and we can easily add more servers or HDDs if they are needed. No matter how many items you add to your web store or the number of comments users leave on your message board, you'll never encounter any issues due to deficiency of database storage space.
PostgreSQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you would like to use PostgreSQL for your websites, you can benefit from our powerful semi-dedicated server
packages. Based on the websites that you intend to have, you can select between restricted and unrestricted PostgreSQL storage, because a smaller website calls for less resources, thus you can pay a lower fee every month. The top-end plan includes unrestricted storage space and because it also comes with a lot more computing power, you'll be able to operate heavy script apps without a problem and without having to worry that your websites will grow too much. You can manage huge online stores or discussion boards with thousands of users and no matter how much their PostgreSQL databases expand, there won't be any disorders as a result of hitting some limit. For your convenience, you will always be able to see the size of each database plus the entire size that all databases take, however you will never see any sort of restriction in the hosting Control Panel.
