InnoDB is a very popular database storage engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got plenty of strengths that have made it the preferred engine for plenty of PHP-powered web applications, including Magento and Joomla, which have switched to InnoDB permanently. For instance, adding immense amounts of data will be much faster with InnoDB, as it locks only a single database row to complete a particular task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the data is tackled. Put simply, adding new or modifying existent data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be annulled and the procedure will be rolled back in case a certain problem occurs in the meantime, which is why the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.
InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting
While InnoDB is either a paid upgrade or it is not available at all with many hosting providers, it’s an integral part of the default set of services that we’re offering with our cloud web hosting packages. If you want to use a script-powered app that needs InnoDB in particular, in order to be activated and to operate correctly, you won’t face any problems as the InnoDB database storage engine is available on our in-house built cloud hosting platform. Irrespective of whether you create a new MySQL database and activate an app manually or take advantage of our single-click application installer software instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the given application needs it rather than MyISAM. Besides the exceptional database crash recovery that InnoDB is offering, we also keep daily database backups, so we can swiftly recover any database in your shared web hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated servers include InnoDB and you can take full advantage of all the options offered by this database engine with any PHP-driven software application that needs it. It’s among the engines that are available on our cloud web hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the prerequisites of the application in question. You won’t have to do anything manually in order to activate InnoDB, as it will be set as the default engine when you install an app – whether manually or using our 1-click app installer. To avoid any risk, we will keep regular backups of all your databases, so if something goes wrong following an upgrade or if you delete some data unintentionally, we will be able to restore the database the way it was on any of the past seven days.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
If you acquire a VPS server from our company, 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 activate any PHP-driven software application which requires InnoDB, as this particular database engine is part of the software bundle that will be installed on the server during its setup. When you set up a brand-new MySQL database using the Control Panel, you’ll just have to begin installing an application – manually or using our application installer. InnoDB will be set as the default engine given that the app in question needs it, so you won’t need to do anything else in your account. In the same manner, if a certain app needs MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this particular MySQL database.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the options which you can select on the server configuration page when you purchase a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful type of web hosting, it is quite likely that you will manage highly popular Internet sites that will draw many people, and since InnoDB is one of the very best options for such sites, we’ll install it along with all the other software apps that come with a Hepsia-equipped dedicated server. If you create a brand-new database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any activated MySQL storage engine until you begin installing a script, whether manually via your web browser or using the automatic script installer that is available in the hosting Control Panel. The necessary engine will be automatically detected and will be set for the database in question, so you can activate scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without coming across any complication.
