InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by popular open-source script-driven software apps like Magento and Joomla v3. It’s ideal for scalable applications, because it performs remarkably well when managing large volumes of data. Rather than locking the entire table to add new information to a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can carry out a lot more operations for the same length of time. Furthermore, InnoDB offers a faster database crash recovery and supports database transactions and foreign keys – rules that define how data inserts and updates should be handled. If a certain operation has not been thoroughly completed for whatever reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the information in the database will stay intact and won’t be partially merged with newly added content.
InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting
You’ll be able to make use of any script-driven software app that needs InnoDB in case you’ve got a Linux cloud web hosting service with us, as the database storage engine is present on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform by default. During the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will proceed flawlessly if this engine is needed. You can run apps that require the MyISAM engine without any problems as well and, once again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you will not have to modify anything manually at any time. On top of that, we’ll also create daily backups of all the MySQL databases that you’ve got in your shared hosting account, so in case you delete or overwrite something, we can quickly get it back to the way it was on any of the previous seven days.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can run a script-driven software app that needs InnoDB with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, because all the accounts are created on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform where the MySQL database storage engine is installed. A new MySQL database can be created in two different ways – manually through the Database Manager section of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, or automatically – if you take advantage of our 1-click application installer. Either way, the needed engine will be chosen automatically once the installation of the application starts, so you will not have to configure anything manually, no matter if the application needs InnoDB or the more frequently used MyISAM. Furthermore, we will always be able to restore any of your databases if you remove one by accident, as we generate a couple of database backups every day, each of which is saved for 1 whole week.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
If you select a VPS server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, the InnoDB database engine will be an integral part of the standard software bundle that will be pre-installed on your Virtual Private Server before we give it to you. You will not need to configure anything manually and you’ll be able to enable and run any PHP-driven software app that requires InnoDB once your Virtual Private Server is up and running, which takes no more than 60 minutes after the order process itself. A few engines are available, so whenever you create a MySQL database through the Hepsia Control Panel, a particular engine will be selected once the app installation process begins and our system will detect the engine that is required by the application in question. If you need MyISAM, for instance, you won’t have to do anything different than installing the desired application, whether manually or using our app installer tool.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the features which you can choose on the order form when you buy a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful kind of website hosting, it is quite likely that you will run very popular sites that will draw plenty of visitors, and since InnoDB is one of the very best choices for such websites, we’ll enable it together with all the other software apps that are available with a Hepsia-managed server. When you create a brand new database in your account, there won’t be any activated MySQL database engine until you begin installing an open-source script, whether manually via your web browser or using the automatic scripts installer that is available in the hosting Control Panel. The needed engine will be detected automatically and will be assigned to that database, so you can use scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that need MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without any difficulty.
