InnoDB is a database storage engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by popular open-source script-powered web applications such as Joomla v3 and Magento. It’s excellent for scalable apps, because it works astonishingly well when managing enormous amounts of data. Rather than locking the entire table to insert new information in a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can carry out a lot more tasks for the same period of time. Furthermore, InnoDB offers a much faster database crash recovery and supports transactions and foreign keys – rules that define how data imports and modifications should be treated. If a certain task hasn’t been entirely completed for whatever reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the database content will remain safe and sound and won’t be partially mixed with newly entered content.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
While InnoDB is either not available or a paid upgrade with other website hosting service providers, it is an essential part of the standard set of services that we’re offering with our cloud hosting packages. In case you wish to make use of a PHP script-powered application that needs InnoDB particularly, in order to be installed and to work properly, you will not face any difficulties because the database storage engine is available on our custom-built cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of whether you set up a new MySQL database and activate an app manually or take advantage of our 1-click application installer tool, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the respective app needs it rather than MyISAM. In addition to the outstanding database failure recovery that InnoDB is offering, we also keep daily database backups, so that we can quickly recover any database in your shared website hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated servers include InnoDB and you will be able to make use of all the options offered by this MySQL database engine with any open-source script-powered web application that needs it. It’s among the engines that are available on our cloud website hosting platform, so the one that will be selected depends on the requirements of the particular application. You will not have to do anything manually to enable InnoDB, because it will be set as the default engine when you install an application – whether manually or using our 1-click app installer. To avoid any risk, we will maintain daily database backups, so if something goes wrong after an update or if you delete some content by accident, we will be able to get the database back to the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB already installed, so you will be able to run any script-powered web application that requires this database storage engine without needing to set up anything manually. You can choose Hepsia on the VPS order form and your new Virtual Private Server will be set up within one hour, so you can log in and begin creating your websites right away. When you create a new database and start the app activation process, our system will choose the engine for that MySQL database automatically. In this way, you can use various applications at the same time without the need to update anything on the VPS server. You can create a WordPress-powered personal blog that makes use of the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-driven web shop that uses InnoDB, for instance.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
When you buy a new dedicated server, you’ll be able to pick any of the three hosting Control Panels offered by us – Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Any server ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-activated, so you won’t have to install this database engine manually so as to be able to manage script-powered apps that need it. InnoDB is used for scalable apps and since a dedicated server will supply you with all the resources that you need in order to manage very large websites, it’s pretty possible that you will resort to InnoDB. You will be able to make use of other engines as well, so if a particular application needs MyISAM instead of InnoDB, you will not have any impediment while using it. The engine that will be used will be recognized automatically the moment the app installation starts, so you won’t have to change any settings manually at any time.
