InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for the MySQL DBMS. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has numerous advantages that have made it the preferred engine for plenty of open-source script-based software applications, including Magento and Joomla, which have shifted over to InnoDB for good. For example, adding immense amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, as it locks only one row to accomplish a particular operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is handled. To put it simply, appending new or modifying existent data will either be entirely completed, or will be annulled and the operation will be rolled back in case a certain issue occurs in the meantime, which means that the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.
InnoDB in Web Hosting
While InnoDB is either a paid upgrade or it is not available at all with many other hosting service providers, it is an essential part of the default set of features offered with our web hosting plans. If you’d like to make use of a script-driven application that needs InnoDB specifically, in order to be activated and to perform correctly, you won’t come across any difficulties since the MySQL database storage engine is available on our in-house developed cloud hosting platform. No matter if you create a new MySQL database and activate an application manually or take advantage of our 1-click application installer software tool, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the given application needs InnoDB instead of MyISAM. Besides the incredible crash recovery that InnoDB offers, we also carry out regular database backups, so we can quickly recover any database in your shared web hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you set up a brand-new MySQL database from the Control Panel included with all our semi-dedicated server accounts and you begin installing a script-powered app either manually or using our 1-click app installer tool, the database storage engine will be set automatically based on the requirements of the specific app. Since InnoDB is available on the cloud website hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated server account will be created, it will be set as the default engine for each app that needs it without the need for any manual intervention on your end at any point. To prevent any risk of losing information if you update an app or if you erase a database by mistake, we will make backups of all your MySQL databases every day, so if anything goes wrong, we can restore your data.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
All Linux VPS web hosting service that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB already activated, so you will be able to use any PHP script-driven application that needs the storage engine without needing to activate anything manually. You can pick Hepsia on the VPS configuration page and your brand-new Virtual Private Server will be set up within 1 hour, so you can log in and start setting up your websites straight away. Once you set up a new database and start the app installation process, our system will set the engine for that MySQL database automatically. In this way, you can install different apps at the same time without changing anything on the server. You can set up a WordPress-based weblog that uses the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento e-commerce site that uses the InnoDB engine, for example.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
If you get a new dedicated server, you will be able to choose any of the 3 Control Panels that we’re offering – DirectAdmin, Hepsia and cPanel. Each dedicated server ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-installed, so you won’t have to install this MySQL database engine manually so as to be able to use script-powered software applications that need it. InnoDB is used by scalable applications and since a dedicated server will provide you with all the server resources that you require to manage very large Internet sites, it is rather likely that you will use InnoDB. You’ll be able to use other engines too, so if a particular app needs MyISAM rather than InnoDB, you won’t have any impediment while managing it. The engine that will be used will be automatically detected the moment the app installation begins, so you won’t have to configure any settings manually at any moment.
