InnoDB is a very popular database storage engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got plenty of strengths that make it the preferred engine for plenty of open-source script-driven web apps, such as Magento and Joomla, which have switched over to InnoDB permanently. For example, adding huge volumes of data will be faster with InnoDB, since it locks only a single database row to accomplish a given task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is tackled. Put simply, appending new or modifying existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be annulled and the procedure will be rolled back if any issue shows up during the process, which is why the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.
InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting
While InnoDB is either not available or a paid upgrade with many other website hosting service providers, it is an integral part of the default set of features that we are offering with our cloud website hosting packages. If you wish to make use of an open-source script-powered web app that needs InnoDB particularly, in order to be activated and to work properly, you will not come across any problems since the MySQL database storage engine is available on our custom-developed cloud platform. No matter if you set up a brand-new MySQL database and install an application manually or take advantage of our one-click app installer tool, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our system as the default engine if the application needs it instead of MyISAM. Besides the remarkable database crash recovery offered by InnoDB, we also store daily backups of all databases, so that we can swiftly recover any database in your shared hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
InnoDB is included with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans by default, so as soon as you order a new account, you can go on and activate any PHP script-driven web application that requires this storage engine. Several engines are pre-installed on our cloud platform, so when you set up a brand-new MySQL database and start installing an app manually, or decide to take advantage of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated app installer, the engine for the database will be set depending on the prerequisites of the application in question. This will permit you to activate and manage InnoDB-specific applications without the need to deal with any problem and without configuring any settings in your account. To take no chances, we will always keep a 7-day-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you erase or change any content by mistake, we can easily recover it.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
All VPS plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-installed, so you will be able to run any open-source script-powered application that needs this MySQL storage engine without having to configure anything manually. You can choose Hepsia on the VPS order form and your new Virtual Private Server will be up and running within the hour, so you can sign in and start setting up your websites right away. Once you create a brand-new database and begin the app installation process, our system will pick the engine for this MySQL database automatically. In this way, you can make use of various apps simultaneously without the need to change anything on the server. You can create a WordPress-driven weblog that uses MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento online store that makes use of the InnoDB engine, for example.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
If you buy a new dedicated server, you will be able to pick any of the three Control Panels that we are offering – DirectAdmin, Hepsia and cPanel. Each server ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-activated, so you will not have to install this database storage engine manually in order to be able to use PHP script-based apps that need it. InnoDB is used for scalable applications and since a dedicated server will offer you all the system resources that you require to run large-scale websites, it is pretty possible that you will use InnoDB. You’ll be able to make use of other engines too, so if a certain app needs MyISAM instead of InnoDB, you won’t come across any impediment while managing it. The engine that will be used will be automatically recognized the moment the app installation procedure starts, so you will not have to update any setting manually whatsoever.
