InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by widely used open-source script-driven web apps like Magento and Joomla 3.x. It is perfect for scalable applications, as it performs remarkably well when managing immense data volumes. Rather than locking the whole database table to import new information into a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can carry out a lot more tasks for the same period of time. Besides, InnoDB offers a much faster crash recovery and supports transactions and foreign key constraints – a set of rules that define how data imports and modifications should be handled. If a certain operation has not been thoroughly completed for whatever reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the content in the database will stay undamaged and will not be partially mixed with newly appended content.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
While InnoDB is either not available or a paid upgrade with other web hosts, it is part of the default set of services that we’re offering with our cloud hosting packages. In case you’d like to use a PHP script-driven software app that needs InnoDB in particular, in order to be installed and to perform properly, you will not encounter any obstacles since the InnoDB storage engine is available on our custom-developed cloud Internet hosting platform. Irrespective of whether you set up a new database and install an app manually or take advantage of our 1-click application installer software tool, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the specific application needs InnoDB rather than MyISAM. Besides the amazing crash recovery that InnoDB is offering, we also store regular backups of all databases, so that we can easily restore any database in your shared website hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you create a new MySQL database through the Control Panel offered with each of our semi-dedicated server accounts and you begin installing an open-source script-driven software app either manually or using our single-click application installer tool, the storage engine for the MySQL database will be set automatically on the basis of the prerequisites of the app in question. As InnoDB is present on the cloud website hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated server account will be created, it will be set as the default engine for any application that needs it without any manual intervention required on your end at any point. To prevent any risk of losing information if you update an app or if you remove a database unintentionally, we will carry out backups of all your databases each and every day, so if something happens, we can retrieve your data.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
When you get a VPS server from our company, you will be able to take full advantage of our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel to manage your web content. A Hepsia-managed Virtual Private Server will allow you to manage any PHP script-based software app which needs InnoDB, as this particular storage engine is an essential part of the default software bundle that will be pre-installed on your VPS server during its creation. When you set up a brand-new MySQL database using the Control Panel, you just have to begin installing an app – manually or using our app installer. InnoDB will be set as the default engine on the condition that the application in question needs it, so you will not have to do anything else in your account. Analogously, if a given application requires MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this concrete MySQL database.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is among the features which you can pick on the server configuration page when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. Since this is the most powerful type of hosting, it’s rather likely that you’ll manage very popular sites that will draw a lot of visitors, and since InnoDB is one of the best options for such websites, we will enable it along with all the other software applications that come with a Hepsia-equipped dedicated server. If you create a new database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any activated storage engine till you begin installing a PHP script, whether manually via your browser or using the automatic scripts installation tool that is included in the Control Panel. The needed engine will be recognized automatically and will be assigned to that database, so you can make use of scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that need MyISAM, the default MySQL engine, without the need to cope with any complication.
