Well, personally having used both PostgreSQL and MySQL I find very
little difference between them unless you're using some of the more
advanced functions, which gives PostgreSQL the upper hand. If you're
planning on spending a lot of time developing a high-volume website
then developing it in house and investing time and money into those
skills/personnel would make sense. If on the other hand it's only a
small website then sticking with what you have, or continuing to use
another company for development would make more sense.

Could you not use another domain/subdomain, or even an IP for this?
