( The Hosting News ) CirtexHosting, a provider of Linux web hosting, today announced that it has added PostgreSQL Hosting, enabling its customers to create and manage PostgreSQL databases through the cPanel control panel.
The company explains that the vast majority of shared web hosts currently do not support PostgreSQL, instead supporting only the MySQL database platform. Although both platforms are loaded with an impressive array of features and boast strong performance records, it has added support for PostgreSQL to allow its customers to utilize the database the best meets their needs.
It states that customers can utilize either MySQL or PostgreSQL at no additional charge. In fact, customers are able to manage both MySQL and PostgreSQL databases when creating databases in their allotment. The company claims that this flexibility enables customers to build a web site that relies on a diverse set of applications that are powered by both platforms.
“In recent months, there has been a consistent increase in demand from our customers for more database options. Although supporting two databases increases the complexity of our hosting environment and adds marginally to our customer support load, we believe it is essential to do everything we can do help our customers succeed, especially when they ask for improvement in a specific area,” said CirtexHosting President John Xie.
