InnoDB is a database engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by famous script-powered web applications like Joomla v3 and Magento. It is perfect for scalable applications, because it performs astonishingly well when processing enormous amounts of data. Rather than locking the whole database table to add new information to a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can execute a lot more operations for the same period of time. Moreover, InnoDB offers a faster database crash recovery and supports transactions and foreign key constraints – a set of rules that determine how data imports and modifications should be treated. If a given task hasn’t been fully completed for any reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the information in the database will be kept intact and won’t be partially mixed with newly inserted content.
InnoDB in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to use any open-source script-powered web app that requires InnoDB if you have a shared hosting with our company, as the database storage engine is available on our innovative cloud website hosting platform as standard. Throughout the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will continue impeccably in case this engine is required. You can install applications which need the MyISAM engine without encountering any impediment as well and, once again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you won’t have to edit anything manually at any point. On top of that, we will also perform regular backups of all the databases that you’ve got in your shared web hosting account, so if you erase or overwrite something, we can swiftly get it back to the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated servers include InnoDB and you’ll be able to take advantage of all the features of this MySQL database storage engine with any PHP-powered software app that requires it. InnoDB is one of the engines that are available on our cloud web hosting platform, so the one that will be used depends on the prerequisites of the particular application. You will not need to do anything manually in order to activate InnoDB, because it will be set as the default engine when you install an app – whether manually or using our one-click app installer tool. To be on the safe side, we’ll keep daily MySQL database backups, so if anything goes wrong following an update or if you remove some content unintentionally, we will be able to restore the database the way it was on any of the previous seven days.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
If you purchase a VPS server from our company, you’ll be able to take advantage of our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel to manage your content. A Hepsia-equipped VPS will permit you to activate any script-driven software app that requires InnoDB, as the database storage engine is an essential part of the default software bundle that will be pre-installed on your VPS server during its configuration. When you create a new MySQL database via the Control Panel, you’ll simply have to begin installing an app – manually or using our application installer tool. InnoDB will be set as the default engine if the app in question requires it, so you will not need to do anything else in your VPS account. Correspondingly, if a given app requires MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this particular database.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
Our Hepsia Control Panel is one of the options that you can select on the order form when you buy a dedicated server from us. As this is the most powerful type of hosting, it’s very likely that you will run highly popular sites that will attract a lot of individuals, and since InnoDB is among the best choices for such sites, we will install it along with all the other software applications that are available with a Hepsia-equipped dedicated server. When you create a brand-new database in your account, there won’t be any active MySQL database engine until you begin installing an open-source script, whether manually through your Internet browser or using the automatic script installation tool that is included in the hosting Control Panel. The required engine will be automatically detected and will be assigned to that database, so you can make use of scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without having to deal with any impediment.
