InnoDB is a MySQL database storage engine, which has been gaining popularity in recent years, because it provides a significantly better overall performance and a faster database failure recovery in comparison to the default engine that is used by the MySQL database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is used by many programmers that create highly scalable apps, due to the fact that it works much better with enormous amounts of data, while it keeps the server load at a minimum. Moreover, it locks only a single row in the database if any information should be modified, whereas lots of other engines lock the entire database table and therefore require more time to complete multiple consecutive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB abides by a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – if the entire data modification procedure cannot be completed for some reason, the operation is rolled back to avoid scrambling or the loss of data. Magento and the latest versions of Joomla™ are two instances of famous open-source script-powered applications that have shifted over to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
While InnoDB is either a paid upgrade or it is not available at all with other web hosting companies, it is included in the standard set of services that we’re offering with our cloud hosting
packages. If you wish to make use of a PHP script-powered software application that requires InnoDB particularly, in order to be activated and to operate properly, you won’t have any impediments since the database engine is available on our in-house built cloud platform. Regardless of whether you set up a brand-new MySQL database and install 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 app needs it rather than MyISAM. Besides the amazing database failure recovery that InnoDB is offering, we also perform regular database backups, so that we can easily restore any MySQL database in your shared web hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you create a brand new MySQL database through the hosting Control Panel offered with all our semi-dedicated server
accounts and you begin installing a PHP-based web application either manually or using our 1-click application installer, the MySQL database storage engine will be selected automatically depending on the requirements of the given 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 any application that requires it without any manual action required on your end at any point. To prevent any risk of losing info if you update an app or if you erase a database accidentally, we will make a backup of all your databases each day, so if something happens, we can retrieve your content.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
If you pick a VPS server
with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, the InnoDB database engine will be included in the default software package that will be pre-installed on your Virtual Private Server before we give it to you. You won’t need to set up anything manually and you will be able to enable and use any script-powered application that requires InnoDB once your VPS server is ready, which takes no more than 60 minutes after the order submission process itself. A number of engines are offered, so anytime you create a MySQL database through the Hepsia Control Panel, a particular engine will be selected when the app activation begins and our system will automatically detect the engine that is required by the app in question. If you need MyISAM, for example, you won’t need to do anything different from installing the chosen application, whether manually or using our application installer tool.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
InnoDB is available by default with all dedicated servers
ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It’s an essential part of the standard software bundle that we install on all Hepsia-equipped servers, so once your machine is assembled, you will be able to sign in and to activate any type of PHP script-driven software app that needs this storage engine. If you create a new database through the Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine until you start installing an app. As soon as the app installation wizard begins dumping information in the database, the engine will be chosen automatically based on the requirements of the application in question, so you can run both MyISAM and InnoDB without selecting either one explicitly at any time. In this way, you can make use of a wide variety of apps for your websites.
