InnoDB is a MySQL database storage engine, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years, as it provides a better overall performance and an improved crash recovery in comparison with the default engine used by the MySQL relational database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is preferred by lots of programmers that build highly scalable applications, because it works much more efficiently with immense amounts of data, while it keeps the server processing load low. Also, it it locks only one row in the database if any information should be modified, while many other engines lock the entire table and hence need much more time to fulfill several successive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB observes the "all-or-nothing" rule – if the entire data modification cannot be completed successfully for whatever reason, the operation is rolled back to prevent scrambling or the loss of data. Magento and the newest releases of Joomla™ are two examples of widespread open-source script-based software platforms which have switched over to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to install any script-powered application that requires InnoDB in case you have a Linux shared website hosting
with our company, as the database engine is present on our innovative cloud hosting platform by default. Throughout 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 applications that use the MyISAM engine without encountering any difficulty as well and, again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you will not need to modify anything manually at any time. On top of that, we’ll also make regular backups of all the databases that you have in your shared web hosting account, so in case you delete or overwrite something, we can easily get it back to the way it was on any of the past 7 days.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
InnoDB comes with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans
by default, so the moment you purchase a new semi-dedicated account, you can go on and activate any PHP script-based software app that requires this particular MySQL database 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 app manually, or opt to use the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated application installer tool, the engine for the database will be set based on the prerequisites of the application in question. This will allow you to install and manage InnoDB-specific apps without the need to deal with any impediment and without configuring any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To be on the safe side, we’ll always have a 7-day-old backup of all your databases, so if you delete or alter any content accidentally, we can easily recover it.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
In case our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is picked during the signup process for your new VPS plans
, InnoDB will be installed on the server along with other needed pieces of software, so you will not need to do anything if you decide to make use of PHP-based software applications that need this MySQL database engine. The default MySQL engine – MyISAM, will be activated too. You can set up a new MySQL database and start installing the app manually or through our single-click installer tool. The system will recognize the engine that the app in question requires and will assign it to the specific database, so the installation process will continue flawlessly and the application can dump its content in that database. Thus, you can run applications with various requirements with regard to the MySQL engine without having to make any changes on your VPS.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is one of the options which you can pick on the server configuration page when you buy a dedicated server
from our company. Since this is the most powerful type of web hosting, it’s quite likely that you will run very popular websites that will draw lots of visitors, and since InnoDB is one of the best options for such websites, we’ll activate it along with all the other software applications that are available with a Hepsia-managed server. When you create a brand-new database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any activated database engine till you begin installing a script, whether manually via your browser or using the automatic scripts installation tool that is integrated into the Control Panel. The necessary engine will be automatically detected and will be set for the database in question, so you can use scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without any difficulty.
