InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining popularity in recent years, as it offers a significantly better overall performance and a faster database crash recovery in comparison with the default engine that is used by the MySQL relational database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is preferred by lots of devs that create scalable software apps, because it works more effectively with immense data volumes, while it keeps the server processing load low. In addition, it locks only a single row in the database in case any information should be modified, whereas lots of other engines lock the entire database table and therefore need more time to execute multiple consecutive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB follows a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – if the entire data modification cannot be completed successfully for any reason, the operation is rolled back to avoid scrambling or losing data. Magento and the latest versions of Joomla are two instances of widely used PHP script-driven web applications that have shifted over to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting
While InnoDB is either not available or a paid upgrade with many website hosting service providers, it is an integral part of the standard set of features that we offer with our cloud website hosting plans. If you would like to use an open-source script-based web app that requires InnoDB specifically, in order to be installed and to work correctly, you won’t come across any obstacles as the database storage engine is available on our in-house developed cloud platform. Regardless of whether you create a brand new database and install an app manually or use our 1-click app installer software instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our system as the default engine if the given application needs it instead of MyISAM. In addition to the remarkable crash recovery that InnoDB offers, we also make daily backups of all databases, so that we can swiftly recover any MySQL database in your shared web hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
InnoDB is available with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting by default, so the moment you create a new account, you can go ahead and activate any script-driven app that requires this particular MySQL database engine. A few engines are pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so when you create a brand-new MySQL database and start installing an application manually, or opt to take advantage of the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated app installer tool, the engine for the database will be selected on the basis of the requirements of the specific application. This will allow you to install and run InnoDB-specific apps without needing to deal with any impediment and without the need to change any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To avoid any risk, we will always keep a one-week-old backup of all your databases, so if you remove or change any content unintentionally, we can easily retrieve it.
InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting
All VPS web hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB already installed, so you’ll be able to make use of any open-source script-powered web application that needs the MySQL database engine without the need to set up anything manually. You can select Hepsia on the VPS order form and your new server will be ready within 60 minutes, so you can sign in and start building your websites straight away. When you create a new database and start the app activation process, our system will choose the engine for this database automatically. Thus, you can use various applications at the same time without having to update anything on the Virtual Private Server. You can set up a WordPress-powered online journal that uses the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-driven online store that uses InnoDB, for example.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the options that you can choose on the order form when you buy a dedicated server from our company. As this is the most powerful type of website hosting, it is rather likely that you will manage highly popular sites that will draw lots of people, and since InnoDB is one of the very best options for such sites, we’ll enable it along with all the other software applications that are offered with a Hepsia-equipped server. If you create a new database in your account, there won’t be any active MySQL storage engine till you start installing an open-source PHP script, whether manually via your browser or using the automatic scripts installation tool that is included in the hosting Control Panel. The required 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 the need to deal with any obstacle.
