InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining popularity in recent years, because it offers a significantly better overall performance and a faster database failure recovery compared to the default engine that is used by MySQL – MyISAM. InnoDB is used by many devs that write scalable apps, due to the fact that it works more effectively with large data volumes, while it keeps the server load at a minimum. In addition, it locks only one database row if any information should be edited, whereas many other engines lock the entire database table and thus need more time to process multiple sequential tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB observes a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – in case the entire data modification cannot be completed for any reason, the action is rolled back to prevent confusion or losing data. Magento and the latest Joomla versions are two instances of famous open-source script-driven software platforms which have switched over to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Hosting
Every script-based software app that requires InnoDB will function impeccably on our innovative cloud hosting platform and the MySQL database engine is available with all our hosting packages. Whenever you create a MySQL database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation process is initiated, the engine that the database will make use of will be selected in accordance with the app’s prerequisites without having to configure any setting in your shared hosting account. InnoDB will be picked automatically for any application that requires this specific engine and you will be able to make the most of its full capacity. We’ll maintain daily content backups, so if you unintentionally remove a MySQL database that is important to you or you overwrite certain parts of it, we’ll be able to restore everything the way it was only a couple of hours earlier.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can run a script-based application that requires InnoDB with any of our semi-dedicated server packages, due to the fact that all the accounts are created on our leading-edge cloud platform where the MySQL database storage engine is installed. A new MySQL database can be set up in two ways – manually through the Database Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, or automatically – in case you take advantage of our one-click app installer. In either case, the required engine will be picked automatically as soon as the installation of the app begins, so you won’t need to modify anything manually, irrespective of whether the application requires InnoDB or the more regularly used MyISAM. Furthermore, we’ll always be able to restore any of your databases in case you accidentally delete one, as we make a few database backups every day, each of which is kept for seven days.
InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting
All Linux VPS web hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-activated, so you will be able to take advantage of any script-based software application that needs the database storage engine without needing to install anything manually. You can pick Hepsia on the VPS configuration page and your brand new VPS server will be up and running within one hour, so you can log in and start building your websites straight away. When you create a brand new database and start the app installation process, our system will select the engine for this database automatically. Thus, you can make use of various applications simultaneously without the need to configure anything on the Virtual Private Server. You can create a WordPress-powered personal weblog that uses the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-based web shop that uses the InnoDB engine, for example.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you purchase a new dedicated server, you will be able to select any of the 3 hosting Control Panels offered by us – cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin. Any server ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-activated, so you will not need to install this database engine manually to be able to manage PHP-based web apps that require it. InnoDB is used for scalable apps and since a dedicated server will supply you with all the resources that you need to manage very large websites, it’s rather likely that you will resort to InnoDB. You will be able to make use of other engines as well, so in case a particular application needs MyISAM instead of InnoDB, you will not have to deal with any difficulty while running it. The engine that will be used will be recognized automatically once the app installation procedure begins, so you will not need to fine-tune any setting manually at any moment.
