InnoDB is a popular storage engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has many upsides that make it the preferred engine for a lot of script-powered apps, such as Magento and Joomla™, which have moved to InnoDB for good. For example, adding huge amounts of data will be much faster with InnoDB, as it locks only one database row to accomplish a particular operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable applications. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is tackled. To put it simply, appending new or modifying existing data will either be fully completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back if any problem shows up in the meantime, therefore the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
While InnoDB is either a paid upgrade or it is not available at all with other web hosting providers, it is part of the standard set of features that we offer with our cloud hosting
packages. If you’d like to use an open-source script-based web application that requires InnoDB particularly, in order to be installed and to function properly, you will not experience any difficulties as the InnoDB database storage engine is available on our custom-built cloud website hosting platform. Irrespective of whether you set up a new database and activate an app manually or take advantage of our single-click app installer instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the particular application needs it instead of MyISAM. Besides the incredible crash recovery that InnoDB is offering, we also perform daily backups of all databases, so we can easily restore any database in your shared account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
InnoDB is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans
by default, so as soon as you create a new account, you can go on and activate any PHP script-powered web application that needs the MySQL storage engine. A few engines are installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so when you create a new MySQL database and begin installing an application manually, or decide to make use of the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated application installer tool, the engine for the database will be picked on the basis of the prerequisites of the given app. This will permit you to install and run InnoDB-specific apps without having to cope with any complication and without needing to configure any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To avoid any risk, we’ll always have a 1-week-old backup of all your databases, so if you remove or alter any content by accident, we can quickly retrieve it.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
If you purchase a VPS server
from us, you will be able to take advantage of our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel to manage your web content. A Hepsia-equipped VPS will allow you to install any PHP script-driven app that needs InnoDB, as the MySQL database storage engine is included in the default software package that will be pre-installed on your server during its configuration. When you set up a brand new MySQL database using the hosting Control Panel, you’ll just need to start installing an application – manually or using our app installer. InnoDB will be set as the default engine as long as the app in question requires it, so you won’t need to do anything else in your account. Analogously, if a certain application needs MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this concrete database.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
InnoDB is available by default with all dedicated web hosting plans
that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It is part of the standard software bundle that we install on all Hepsia-equipped servers, so as soon as your physical machine is up and running, you’ll be able to sign in and to activate a various PHP script-driven software app that needs this database engine. When you create a new database through the Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine till you begin installing an application. Once the app configuration wizard begins inserting information into the newly created database, the engine will be set automatically on the basis of the prerequisites of the specific application, so you can use both MyISAM and InnoDB without having to select either one of them explicitly at any point. Therefore, you can use a huge collection of apps for your websites.
