InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years, as it offers a much better overall performance and a faster crash recovery in comparison with the default engine used by the MySQL RDBMS – MyISAM. InnoDB is endorsed by many developers that run scalable web applications, because it works much more effectively with huge volumes of data, while it keeps the server load low. Moreover, it locks only a single row in the database if any information should be modified, while lots of other engines lock the entire database table and therefore require much more time to fulfill several successive 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 the loss of data. Magento and the newest Joomla releases are two instances of widespread PHP-based applications which have switched to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting
While InnoDB is either not offered or it is a paid upgrade with many hosting service providers, it’s part of the standard set of features that we offer with our cloud web hosting plans. If you’d like to use a script-powered software app that needs InnoDB specifically, in order to be activated and to function properly, you will not experience any difficulties as the MySQL database engine is available on our custom-built cloud hosting platform. Irrespective of whether you create a brand new database and install an app manually or take advantage of our 1-click app installer tool, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our system as the default engine if the respective app requires it rather than MyISAM. Besides the remarkable database failure recovery offered by InnoDB, we also keep daily backups of all databases, so that we can swiftly recover any MySQL database in your shared website hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you set up a brand-new MySQL database from the hosting Control Panel offered with each of our semi-dedicated server packages and you start installing a PHP script-driven software application either manually or using our one-click app installer tool, the storage engine for the database will be selected automatically depending on the given app’s requirements. Since InnoDB is present on the cloud website hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated server account will be created, it will be set as the default engine for any app that requires it without any manual intervention needed on your end at any point. To prevent any risk of losing info if you update an app or if you erase a database accidentally, we will carry out backups of all your databases every day, so if anything goes wrong, we can rescue your content.
InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting
If you obtain a virtual private server from us, you’ll be able to take full advantage of our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel to manage your content. A Hepsia-managed VPS will allow you to use any PHP script-powered software application that needs InnoDB, as this MySQL database engine is part of the default software bundle that will be pre-installed on your VPS server during its creation. When you set up a brand new MySQL database via the Control Panel, you simply have to start installing an app – manually or using our application installer. InnoDB will be set as the default engine if the app in question requires it, so you won’t need to do anything else in your VPS account. Identically, if an application requires MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this concrete database.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All Linux dedicated servers hosting that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel come with a software package that’s pre-activated and among everything else, you will get the InnoDB database storage engine, so you won’t need to activate it manually in case you wish to run scripts that need it. All it takes to install such a script is to create a new database and to begin the installation process – once the installer wizard acquires access to the database and begins importing content into it, InnoDB will be set as the default MySQL engine for this database as long as it is the one required by the particular script. You’ll also be able to activate scripts that need MyISAM – the other very popular MySQL engine, so you will not need to update any settings on the dedicated server. This will permit you to activate a variety of scripts on one single physical machine and to use it to its full capacity.
