PostgreSQL is a powerful relational database management system (rdbms) that
is similar to Ingres. PostgreSQL is an enhancement of the original POSTGRES database management system, a next-generation
DBMS research prototype. While PostgreSQL retains the powerful data model and rich data types of POSTGRES, it replaces the
PostQuel query language with an extended subset of SQL.
PostgreSQL is currently provided free of charge to our Virtual Private Server Administrators.
While this is being provided free of charge, we recommend that you take the time to register at the PostgreSQL Web site.
