InnoDB is a MySQL database storage engine, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years, because it provides a better overall performance and a faster database crash recovery in comparison to the default engine that is used by the MySQL relational database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is endorsed by numerous programmers that build highly scalable apps, as it works much more efficiently with huge data volumes, while it keeps the server load low. In addition, it locks only a single row in the database if anything should be edited, while many other engines lock the entire database table and hence need more time to execute several sequential tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB abides by a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – if the entire data modification procedure cannot be completed for some reason, the action is rolled back to avoid scrambling or the loss of data. Magento and the newest Joomla editions are two examples of popular script-powered software platforms which have moved to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Web Hosting
While InnoDB is either not available or a paid upgrade with other hosting companies, it is part of the default set of features that we offer with our web hosting plans. In case you would like to use an open-source script-based web application that needs InnoDB particularly, in order to be activated and to operate properly, you will not face any problems since the database storage engine is available on our in-house built cloud web hosting platform. No matter if you set up a brand new MySQL database and install an app manually or take advantage of our one-click application installer instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our system as the default engine if the specific app needs it rather than MyISAM. Besides the amazing database failure recovery that InnoDB offers, we also make regular database backups, so that we can quickly restore any MySQL database in your shared hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
InnoDB is available with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages by default, so the moment you obtain a new account, you can go ahead and activate any script-powered software app that needs this particular database storage engine. A couple of engines are installed on our cloud platform, so when you set up a brand-new MySQL database and start installing an application manually, or decide to take advantage of the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated application installer, the engine for the database will be chosen on the basis of the respective app’s prerequisites. This will permit you to install and manage InnoDB-specific applications without needing to deal with any impediment and without configuring any settings in your account. To be on the safe side, we will always keep a 7-day-old backup of all your databases, so if you remove or alter any content by mistake, we can easily recover it.
InnoDB in VPS Hosting
If you choose a virtual private server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, the InnoDB database storage engine will be an essential part of the standard software pack that will be installed on your server before we give it to you. You will not have to configure anything manually and you’ll be able to enable and run any PHP-based web app that requires InnoDB once your VPS server is ready, which takes no more than one hour after the order submission itself. A number of engines are available, so every time you create a MySQL database through the Hepsia Control Panel, a particular engine will be selected when the app activation process starts and our system will detect which engine is required by the application in question. In case you need MyISAM, for example, you won’t have to do anything different from installing the app of your preference, whether manually or using our app installer tool.
InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting
InnoDB comes as standard with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is included in the default software bundle that will be pre-installed on all Hepsia-managed dedicated servers, so as soon as your physical machine is up and running, you will be able to sign in and to install a various PHP-driven software app that needs this particular storage engine. When you create a new MySQL database via the Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine till you begin installing an app. Once the app activation wizard begins entering information into the database, the engine will be set automatically on the basis of the requirements of the respective app, so you can use both MyISAM and InnoDB without selecting either one explicitly at any time. Thus, you can use a huge collection of applications for your Internet sites.
