InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining popularity lately, as it provides a better overall performance and a faster database crash recovery compared to the default engine that is used by the MySQL database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is preferred by many programmers that run scalable web apps, because it works much more efficiently with large amounts of data, while it keeps the server processing load low. Additionally, it locks only one database row if any information should be modified, whereas lots of other engines lock the entire table and hence need much more time to accomplish multiple successive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB complies with a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – if the entire data modification process cannot be completed successfully for whatever reason, the operation is rolled back to prevent confusion or losing data. Magento and the latest Joomla versions are two instances of famous PHP script-based applications which have switched to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting
You’ll be able to make use of any PHP script-powered web app that needs InnoDB if you’ve got a Linux cloud website hosting with us, as the MySQL storage engine is present on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform as standard. During the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will continue flawlessly in case this engine is needed. You can activate apps which need the MyISAM engine without the need to deal with any problem as well and, again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you will not need to update any setting manually at any moment. In addition, we will also perform daily backups of all the MySQL databases that you’ve got in the shared hosting account, so in case you erase or overwrite anything, we can easily get it back to the way it was on any of the previous seven days.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can run a script-powered application that requires InnoDB with any of our semi-dedicated server packages, due to the fact that all the accounts are set up on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform where the storage engine is installed. A new MySQL database can be set up in two different ways – manually from the Database Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, or automatically – in case you take advantage of our one-click application installer tool. In either case, the required engine will be picked automatically the moment the activation of the application starts, so you will not need to change anything manually, irrespective of whether the app needs InnoDB or the more commonly used MyISAM. On top of that, we’ll always be able to recover any of your databases if you unintentionally remove one, as we perform a few database backups every day, each of which is preserved for 7 days.
InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting
All Linux VPS web hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-installed, so you’ll be able to make use of any script-based software app that needs the storage engine without needing to activate anything manually. You can select Hepsia on the VPS order form and your new VPS server will be up and running within 1 hour, so you can sign in and start building your websites straight away. Once you create a new MySQL database and begin the app activation process, our system will choose the engine for that MySQL database automatically. Thus, you can activate different apps at the same time without the need to change anything on the Virtual Private Server. You can create a WordPress-powered weblog that uses MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento-based e-store that makes use of InnoDB, for example.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is among the options that you can pick on the order form when you buy a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful kind of hosting, it’s very likely that you will run very popular websites that will draw a lot of people, and since InnoDB is among the very best options for such Internet sites, we will activate it together with all the other software applications that are offered with a Hepsia-managed dedicated server. When you create a brand-new MySQL database in your account, there won’t be any active MySQL storage engine till you begin installing an open-source PHP script, whether manually via your browser or using the automatic script installer tool that is integrated into the Control Panel. The needed engine will be recognized automatically and will be assigned to that database, so you can use scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without experiencing any complication.
