If you work with a database-driven script app for your site, all of the content that you or the site users add, is kept 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-based store application, for instance, takes all prices, items, user reviews, etc, from its database and this is the same for any kind of script that enables you to build a dynamic site. The more the data you add, the larger the database gets, so if you use a script-driven website, you have to make sure that your website hosting package comes with sufficient database storage space. The latter applies regardless of what kind of databases you are using - for instance MySQL or PostgreSQL.
PostgreSQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting
In case you use our cloud hosting services, you'll be able to increase the content and the user base of your PostgreSQL-driven sites as much as you will need because a few of our packages feature unlimited database storage. Even if you acquire a lower-end plan, you can improve either the database space feature or the whole package, 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. Since no other processes run using these servers, the general performance is better and we can easily add more servers or hard disk drives when they are needed. Regardless of how many elements you include in your online store or how many comments users leave on your message board, you will never encounter any problems due to limited database storage.
PostgreSQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you'd like to use PostgreSQL for your sites, you are able to reap the benefits of our powerful semi-dedicated server packages. Based on the websites that you wish to have, you can pick between limited and unrestricted PostgreSQL storage, since a smaller website needs less system resources, thus you can pay a lower fee every month. The top-end package includes unlimited space and considering that it also contains much more computing power, you'll be able to operate heavy script applications without any problems and without worrying that your websites will expand too much. You are able to run large web shops or forums with a large number of users and irrespective of how much their PostgreSQL databases grow, there won't be any interruptions caused by getting to some limit. For your information, you will always be able to see the size of each individual database in addition to the whole size that all of the databases take, however you won't ever see any sort of restriction in the website hosting Control Panel.
