InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by widespread script-powered software applications such as Joomla 3.x and Magento. It’s ideal for scalable apps, because it excels in managing huge volumes of data. Instead of locking the entire table to insert new information in a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can complete much more operations for the same length of time. Furthermore, InnoDB offers an improved crash recovery and supports database transactions and foreign keys – a set of rules that determine how data inserts and modifications should be handled. If a specific task has not been entirely completed for whatever reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the content in the database will remain safe and sound and will not be partially mixed with newly added content.
InnoDB in Hosting
While InnoDB is either a paid upgrade or it is not available at all with other hosting companies, it’s part of the default set of services that we offer with our hosting packages. If you would like to make use of a PHP-powered web application that requires InnoDB specifically, in order to be installed and to perform correctly, you will not have any obstacles since the MySQL database storage engine is available on our custom-built cloud website hosting platform. No matter if you create a brand new database and activate an app manually or use our one-click application installer software instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our system as the default engine if the respective app requires InnoDB instead of MyISAM. Besides the outstanding crash recovery that InnoDB offers, we also store regular database backups, so that we can swiftly recover any MySQL database in your shared account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
InnoDB is included with each of our semi-dedicated hosting by default, so the moment you purchase a new account, you can go ahead and install any PHP-driven application that needs this storage engine. A couple of engines are pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so when you create a new database and begin installing an app manually, or decide to use the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated application installer tool, the engine for the database will be set on the basis of the specific app’s requirements. This will permit you to activate and manage InnoDB-specific apps without running into any complication and without having to change any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To take no chances, we’ll always have a 1-week-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you remove or change any content unintentionally, we can quickly rescue it.
InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting
When you order a virtual private server from us, you’ll be able to take full advantage of our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel to manage your content. A Hepsia-managed VPS will permit you to install any script-driven software app that needs InnoDB, as the MySQL database storage engine is an integral part of the default software package that will be pre-installed on the VPS server during its configuration. When you set up a brand-new database via the hosting Control Panel, you just need to start installing an app – manually or using our application installer. InnoDB will be set as the default engine as long as the app in question needs it, so you will not have to do anything else in your VPS account. Analogously, if a given app requires MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this concrete MySQL database.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Our Hepsia Control Panel is one of the options which you can select on the order form when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. Since this is the most powerful kind of web hosting, it is very likely that you’ll run popular Internet sites that will draw plenty of visitors, and since InnoDB is one of the best options for such Internet sites, we’ll enable it together with all the other software apps that come with a Hepsia-managed server. When you create a new database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any activated MySQL database storage engine till you start installing a script, whether manually via your Internet browser or using the automatic script installer tool that is integrated into the hosting Control Panel. The necessary engine will be recognized automatically and will be set for that database, so you can install scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without having to cope with any difficulty.
