InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years, because it provides a significantly better overall performance and an improved database failure recovery in comparison to the default engine used by the MySQL DBMS – MyISAM. InnoDB is preferred by a lot of web developers that run highly scalable software apps, since it works much more efficiently with enormous volumes of data, while it keeps the server processing load low. Furthermore, it locks only one database row in case any information should be modified, while lots of other engines lock the entire database table and hence need more time to handle multiple successive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB adheres to the "all-or-nothing" rule – if the entire data modification cannot be completed successfully for some reason, the operation is rolled back to avoid scrambling or data loss. Magento and the latest Joomla versions are two instances of widespread PHP script-powered software applications which have moved to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
Any script-powered web application that needs InnoDB will function flawlessly on our leading-edge cloud platform and the MySQL database storage engine is available with all our cloud hosting packages. Each time you create a database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation process is started, the engine that the database in question will make use of will be selected on the basis of the app’s specifications without having to configure any setting in your shared hosting account. InnoDB will be picked automatically for any app that requires this particular engine and you will be able to take advantage of its full capacity. We’ll store regular content backups, so in case you unintentionally remove a MySQL database that you need or you overwrite a certain part of it, we will be able to restore your data the way it was only a few hours ago.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated hosting plans support InnoDB and you will be able to make use of all the features offered by this MySQL storage engine with any PHP script-driven web application that requires it. It’s among the engines that are available on our cloud platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the requirements of the particular application. You will not have to do anything manually in order to enable InnoDB, as it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an application – whether manually or using our single-click app installer tool. To avoid any risk, we’ll generate daily database backups, so if anything goes wrong following an update or if you erase some data by accident, we’ll be able to restore your database the way it was on any of the past 7 days.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
If you obtain a VPS server from our company, you will be able to use our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel to manage your web content. A Hepsia-managed VPS will permit you to install any open-source script-powered web app which requires InnoDB, as this particular storage engine is an essential part of the software package that will be installed on your Virtual Private Server during its setup. When you set up a brand new database using the Control Panel, you’ll just need to start installing an application – manually or using our app installer tool. InnoDB will be set as the default engine given that the app in question needs it, so you won’t have to do anything else in your account. Identically, if a certain application requires MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this specific MySQL database.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
InnoDB comes by default with all Linux dedicated web hosting plans ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It’s included in the software bundle that we install on all Hepsia-managed servers, so as soon as your machine is set up, you will be able to sign in and to install any script-based software app that needs this particular storage engine. When you set up a new MySQL database via the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine until you start installing an application. Once the app setup wizard begins entering information into the newly created database, the engine will be chosen automatically in accordance with the specific app’s prerequisites, so you can use both InnoDB and MyISAM without selecting either of them explicitly at any point. Thus, you can make use of a vast variety of apps for your websites.
