InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining popularity in recent years, because it provides a better overall performance and an improved crash recovery in comparison with the default engine that’s used by the MySQL database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is preferred by many programmers that write highly scalable applications, because it works much more efficiently with huge amounts of data, while it keeps the server load low. Also, it locks only a single database row in case any information should be edited, whereas many other engines lock the entire database table and thus need more time to handle multiple consecutive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB observes the "all-or-nothing" rule – in case the entire data modification process cannot be completed successfully for whatever reason, the action is rolled back to prevent scrambling or data loss. Magento and the newest editions of Joomla are two examples of popular PHP-driven software platforms which have shifted over to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting
While InnoDB is either a paid upgrade or it is not available at all with other web hosting providers, it’s an integral part of the standard set of features offered with our cloud website hosting packages. In case you want to make use of a script-based web application that needs InnoDB in particular, in order to be installed and to work correctly, you won’t have to deal with any obstacles because the InnoDB database engine is available on our in-house built cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of whether you create a new database and install an app manually or make use of our 1-click application installer software instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the app requires InnoDB rather than MyISAM. Besides the excellent database crash recovery that InnoDB offers, we also carry out daily backups of all databases, so we can quickly restore any MySQL database in your shared hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you set up a new MySQL database through the Control Panel included with each of our semi-dedicated server packages and you begin installing a script-based web application either manually or using our one-click application installer, the MySQL database storage engine will be set automatically on the basis of the requirements of the specific application. Since InnoDB is available on the cloud website hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated hosting account will be created, it will be set as the default engine for any application that requires it without any manual intervention needed on your end at any time. To avoid any risk of losing info if you update an application or if you remove a database accidentally, we’ll make a backup of all your MySQL databases every day, so if anything happens, we can restore your data.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-activated, so you will be able to take advantage of any PHP-powered web application that needs this particular MySQL database engine without the need to install anything manually. You can pick Hepsia on the VPS order page and your brand-new Virtual Private Server will be set up within sixty minutes, so you can sign in and start building your Internet sites straight away. When you create a new database and start the app installation process, our system will pick the engine for that MySQL database automatically. In this way, you can install various applications simultaneously without having to modify anything on the Virtual Private Server. You can have a WordPress-driven weblog that makes use of the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-driven web store that makes use of the InnoDB engine, for instance.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated servers ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel come with a software package that’s pre-installed and besides everything else, you’ll get the InnoDB storage engine, so you will not have to activate it manually if you would like to activate scripts that need it. All it takes to use such a script is to create a new MySQL database and to start the installation process – once the script setup wizard accesses the database in question and begins importing content into it, InnoDB will be set as the default engine for this database as long as it is the one needed by the particular script. You’ll also be able to use scripts that need the other popular MySQL engine – MyISAM, so you will not have to update any settings on the dedicated server. This will permit you to activate different scripts on one single physical server and to use it to its maximum potential.
