InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining popularity lately, because it offers a much better overall performance and an improved database failure recovery compared to the default engine that’s used by the MySQL database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is preferred by numerous devs that run highly scalable applications, because it works much more effectively with enormous amounts of data, while it keeps the server processing load low. Furthermore, it it locks only one row in the database if any info should be updated, while lots of other engines lock the entire table and thus require more time to process multiple sequential tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB follows a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – in case the entire data modification cannot be completed for whatever reason, the operation is rolled back to avoid confusion or losing data. Magento and the latest Joomla releases are two instances of popular script-driven software applications that have switched to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting
While InnoDB is either not offered or it is a paid upgrade with other hosting service providers, it is an integral part of the default set of features that we are offering with our cloud website hosting plans. In case you would like to use a script-based software app that requires InnoDB particularly, in order to be activated and to work correctly, you won’t have any obstacles since the database engine is available on our custom cloud web hosting platform. No matter if you create a brand new MySQL database and install an app manually or take advantage of our single-click app installer tool, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the specific app needs it rather than MyISAM. In addition to the exceptional database failure recovery that InnoDB is offering, we also perform daily backups of all databases, so that we can quickly recover any MySQL database in your shared web hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
InnoDB comes with each of our Linux semi-dedicated packages by default, so the moment you obtain a new semi-dedicated account, you can move on and activate any script-based application that requires the MySQL database storage engine. A few engines are pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so when you set up a brand-new MySQL database and begin installing an application manually, or opt to take advantage of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated app installer, the engine for the database will be set based on the prerequisites of the respective application. This will allow you to activate and run InnoDB-specific applications without having to deal with any difficulty and without the need to configure any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To avoid any risk, we’ll always keep a one-week-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you erase or change any content by mistake, we can quickly retrieve it.
InnoDB in VPS
If you order a virtual private server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB database storage engine will be an indivisible part of the default software package that will be pre-installed on your Virtual Private Server before we give it to you. You will not need to activate anything manually and you’ll be able to enable and run any PHP-driven app that needs InnoDB once your VPS server is ready, which takes no more than sixty minutes after the order submission process itself. A couple of engines are available, so every time you set up a MySQL database via the Hepsia Control Panel, a specific engine will be picked when the app installation starts and our system will automatically detect which engine is required by the application in question. If you need MyISAM, for instance, you will not have to do anything different from installing the chosen application, whether manually or using our application installer tool.
InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting
When you obtain a new dedicated server, you’ll be able to select one of the 3 hosting Control Panels that we offer – Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Any dedicated server ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-installed, so you won’t need to add this storage engine manually in order to be able to manage PHP script-based web applications that require it. InnoDB is used for scalable apps and since a dedicated server will supply you with all the resources that you require to run very large websites, it is very possible that you will use InnoDB. You will be able to use other engines too, so in case a certain application needs MyISAM rather than InnoDB, you will not experience any problem while using it. The engine that will be used will be automatically recognized as soon as the app installation begins, so you won’t need to tweak any setting manually at any time.
