Below we cover makes PostgreSQL such an effective foundation for hosting data-driven websites.

The benefits of using PostgreSQL hosting align with some very common concerns that small business owners have. Here’s a list of seven compelling reasons why PostgreSQL hosting may be the right choice for your website.
PostgreSQL is easy to configure for blazing speed. It can handle millions of queries and function as a high-speed transactional processing system for online stores.
Installation and configuration of PostgreSQL is easy because you can use cPanel, an industry-leading control panel. You can also choose from a wide collection of tools that make it easy to add, delete and manage PostgreSQL databases.
PostgreSQL provides convenient access to commonly known SQL functions that make adding, retrieving, and managing data easy.
Enhanced transaction processing capabilities, innovative indexing techniques, and support for a range of replication methods make PostgreSQL one of the most powerful and flexible databases available for web development.
PostgreSQL doesn't cost a lot because it's open-source, which means that it's developed and supported in a collaborative way. That often leads to higher quality software than when systems are created using standard commercial software development practices.
PostgreSQL can grow with your business. It has a small server footprint regardless of how much data you're working with. Its scalable framework and broad customizability make it a database solution that your business will never outgrow.
If your website collects visitors' personal data or processes e-commerce transactions, you can rely on PostgreSQL to keep that data safe. It provides native support for using SSL connections, which will encrypt information between the user's browser and the webserver.
While PostgreSQL is instrumental in publishing dynamic web content, another component, PHP also plays a major role.
PHP is a widely-used programming language that's mostly for web development. Using PHP is how a developer can insert instructions into web pages so that web server software can retrieve content from a database for display on the page.
As an e-commerce site, for example, if you’d need to create 500 individual HTML pages, one for each product, the alternative would be to go for a generic product page template containing instructions about which content to display.
These instructions can be included in a web page using PHP.
With just a few lines of code, you can instruct the server to return content dynamically, based on what the user has clicked.

Websites with static HTML pages are hard to find these days. Most sites use a database to store content and employ scripts and applications to automate the process of serving up that content dynamically.
PostgreSQL hosting is web hosting that's built around the extremely popular open-source database, PostgreSQL. A very efficient database management system, PostgreSQL stores data in table format, with metadata (data about the data) also being stored in tables.
When you store your web content in a database, you'll be able to better manage your content and give users a more fulfilling, interactive experience when they visit your site.
That's simply not possible with a site that's based on static content.
For example, an e-commerce site that sells 500 products could have a custom web page for each product, but that would be hard to manage. Using PostgreSQL, all the product information would be loaded into the database. Then, with a single generic page containing minimal instructions, the product page can be rendered differently based on the user's selection.
That's a simplified example of how publishing dynamic, data-driven web content is better than trying to manage a large set of static pages, but it should clarify the difference between the two approaches.
