InnoDB is a MySQL database storage engine, which has been gaining popularity in recent years, as it offers a significantly better overall performance and a faster crash recovery compared to the default engine used by the MySQL DBMS – MyISAM. InnoDB is endorsed by a lot of developers that create highly scalable applications, because it works more efficiently with enormous volumes of data, while it keeps the server processing load at a minimum. In addition, it locks only a single row in the database if any information should be edited, whereas many other engines lock the entire table and hence require more time to fulfill 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 action is rolled back to avoid scrambling or losing data. Magento and the newest releases of Joomla are two instances of famous PHP-based software platforms that have switched over to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to install any open-source script-based software application that needs InnoDB in case you have a cloud hosting with our company, as the storage engine is present on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform as standard. Throughout the app activation – 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 run apps which use the MyISAM engine without any problems as well and, once again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you won’t need to modify any setting manually at any time. On top of that, we’ll also carry out daily backups of all the MySQL databases that you have in your account, so in case you erase or overwrite anything, we can swiftly restore it the way it was on any of the previous seven days.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
InnoDB comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting by default, so the moment you order a new semi-dedicated account, you can move on and activate any script-driven application that requires the database engine. A number of engines are installed on our cloud platform, so when you create a new database and begin installing an app manually, or decide to make use of the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated application installer, the engine for the database will be set on the basis of the given app’s requirements. This will allow you to install and manage InnoDB-specific apps without needing to cope with any difficulty and without needing to configure any settings in your account. To be on the safe side, we’ll always have a one-week-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you remove or edit any content unintentionally, we can swiftly retrieve it.
InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting
All Linux VPS web hosting services that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB already activated, so you will be able to use any open-source script-driven app that requires this particular MySQL database engine without setting up anything manually. You can choose Hepsia on the VPS order form and your new server will be set up within 1 hour, so you can log in and start building your Internet sites straight away. When you set up a brand new database and start the app activation process, our system will set the engine for this MySQL database automatically. In this way, you can run different apps simultaneously without updating anything on the Virtual Private Server. You can set up a WordPress personal weblog that uses MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento online shop that uses InnoDB, for example.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the features that you can select on the server order page when you buy a dedicated server from our company. As this is the most powerful type of website hosting, it is rather likely that you’ll manage popular sites that will attract many people, and since InnoDB is among the best options for such websites, we’ll enable it along with all the other software applications that come with a Hepsia-equipped server. If you create a brand new database in your account, there won’t be any active MySQL database engine until you start installing a PHP script, whether manually via your web browser or using the automatic scripts installer that is integrated into the Control Panel. The required engine will be detected and will be assigned to that database, so you can activate scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without having any problem.
