InnoDB is a MySQL storage engine, which has been gaining in popularity lately, as it offers a better overall performance and an improved database failure recovery compared to the default engine that is used by the MySQL RDBMS – MyISAM. InnoDB is preferred by a lot of web developers that run highly scalable applications, since it works more effectively with huge data volumes, while it keeps the server load at a minimum. Moreover, it locks only one database row if any information should be edited, while many other engines lock the entire table and hence need much more time to accomplish multiple consecutive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB observes a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – if the entire data modification process cannot be completed for some reason, the action is rolled back to prevent confusion or the loss of data. Magento and the latest Joomla versions are two instances of popular script-powered software apps that have shifted over to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
InnoDB is available with all our Linux cloud hosting by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you can activate and run any PHP-powered web application which requires the MySQL database storage engine without having to deal with any impediment as soon as you open your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a given MySQL database during the app activation, regardless of whether you make use of our single-click installation tool or create the MySQL database and activate the app manually, provided that the application requires InnoDB instead of the more popular MyISAM engine. We will generate regular database backups, so you can rest assured that you’ll never lose any content in case you erase a database accidentally or you overwrite some essential info – you will simply have to contact us and we’ll restore your database the way it was.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you set up a brand-new MySQL database from the Control Panel provided with each of our semi-dedicated server accounts and you begin installing a script-based app either manually or using our one-click application installer tool, the MySQL database storage engine will be set automatically depending on the specific app’s requirements. Since InnoDB is present on the cloud hosting platform where your new account will be set up, it will be set as the default engine for each app that needs it without any manual intervention required on your end at any point. To avoid any chance of losing information if you update an application or if you erase a database by accident, we’ll perform a backup of all your MySQL databases each and every day, so if anything happens, we can retrieve your content.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB already activated, so you will be able to make use of any PHP-driven app that requires this MySQL database engine without having to install anything manually. You can pick Hepsia on the VPS order page and your brand-new Virtual Private Server will be set up within 60 minutes, so you can log in and begin creating your web sites right away. Once you create a brand-new MySQL database and start the app installation process, our system will select the engine for that database automatically. Thus, you can run different applications simultaneously without the need to update anything on the VPS server. You can set up a WordPress-driven online journal that makes use of the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-based e-shop that makes use of InnoDB, for example.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is among the options that you can pick on the order form when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. As this is the most powerful kind of hosting, it’s quite likely that you will run highly popular sites that will draw plenty of visitors, and since InnoDB is one of the best choices for such Internet sites, we will enable it along with all the other software applications that come with a Hepsia-equipped dedicated server. When you create a brand new MySQL database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any active database engine till you begin installing a PHP script, whether manually via your browser or using the automatic scripts installer tool that is included in the Control Panel. The needed engine will be detected and will be set for that database, so you can use scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require MyISAM, the default MySQL engine, without any difficulties.
