InnoDB is a MySQL storage engine, which has been gaining popularity lately, as it provides a better overall performance and an improved database crash recovery compared to the default engine that’s used by MySQL – MyISAM. InnoDB is endorsed by lots of devs that write highly scalable applications, as it works more effectively with large amounts of data, while it keeps the server load low. Additionally, it uses row-level locking if any information should be edited, while lots of other engines lock the entire database table and thus need more time to accomplish several successive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB abides by a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – in case the modification of the entire data cannot be completed for whatever reason, the operation is rolled back to avoid confusion or data loss. Magento and the latest editions of Joomla are two instances of famous PHP-powered software applications that have shifted over to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting
InnoDB is available with all our Linux cloud web hosting service by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you can activate and run any script-driven web app which requires the MySQL storage engine without any problem once you order your account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a given database during the app activation process, regardless of whether you use our 1-click installer or create the MySQL database and install the app manually, as long as the application requires it instead of the more famous MyISAM engine. We will create regular backups of all your databases, so you can be certain that you won’t ever lose any content if you delete a database by accident or you overwrite some essential information – you will simply need to inform us and we’ll restore your data back to normal.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can make use of a PHP-driven web application that requires InnoDB with any of our semi-dedicated server packages, as all the accounts are created on our avant-garde cloud platform where the MySQL database engine is installed. A new MySQL database can be created in two ways – manually from the Database Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, or automatically – when you use our single-click application installer. In either case, the required engine will be picked automatically as soon as the activation of the app starts, so you will not have to change anything manually, no matter if the app requires InnoDB or the more widely used MyISAM. On top of that, we’ll always be able to retrieve any of your databases if you accidentally erase one, as we generate a couple of backups every day, each of which is saved for 1 week.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
If you select a VPS server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB database storage engine will be an essential part of the standard software package that will be pre-installed on your server before we hand it over to you. You won’t need to activate anything manually and you will be able to install and use any open-source script-driven software app that needs InnoDB once your VPS is set up, which takes no more than 1 hour after the order process itself. Several engines are available, so anytime you create a MySQL database through the Hepsia Control Panel, a particular engine will be activated once the app installation commences and our system will detect the engine that is required by the app in question. In case you have to use MyISAM, for instance, you will not have to do anything different from installing the desired application, whether manually or using our app installer tool.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is one of the features that you can select on the order form when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. Since this is the most powerful type of website hosting, it’s very likely that you’ll run highly popular Internet sites that will draw a lot of individuals, and since InnoDB is one of the best choices for such websites, we will activate it along with all the other software apps that are available with a Hepsia-managed server. When you set up a brand new MySQL database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any active MySQL database storage engine till you start installing an open-source script, whether manually via your browser or using the automatic script installation tool that is available in the Control Panel. The needed engine will be recognized automatically and will be set for the database in question, so you can make use of scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without running into any difficulty.
