It’s not the best but I can get what I need with Linode. It is not a paid article. So, in this article, I will guide you how to create a PostgreSQL server in the cloud with Linode.
If you are planning to build a PostgreSQL Server in the cloud, Linode offers an powerful at an affordable pricing options. First, login to Linode web, or create a new account if you don’t have it already. You can use this link to create your new account.
or Login with your account.
From your Linode dashboard page, go to Marketplace and click One-Click page to see all available applications. Click PostgreSQL from the list.
Next, scroll down to select the region. Pick the region from the list. In this example, I use Singapore. Then, choose the plan. You can start from as low as $5 per month with 1 CPU, 25 GB storage and 1 GB of RAM.
You can upgrade the plan anytime in the future. Give the new server a name and create a new root password.
Finally, click Create button to create the server. Wait for a few moments until the provisioning process completes.
Now click Launch Console to open the server console where we can start configuring our PostgreSQL Server.
We can also connect to the server from Terminal.
