InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL databases, which is used by well known script-driven software apps such as Magento and Joomla 3. It is perfect for scalable applications, since it performs astonishingly well when managing large data volumes. Instead of locking the entire table to import new information into a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can perform much more tasks for the same length of time. In addition, InnoDB offers a much better database crash recovery and supports transactions and foreign key constraints – a set of rules that determine how data imports and modifications should be treated. If a certain operation hasn’t been entirely completed for some reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the content in the database will be preserved undamaged and will not be partially merged with newly imported content.
InnoDB in Shared Website Hosting
While InnoDB is either not offered or it is a paid upgrade with many web hosts, it’s an essential part of the standard set of features that we’re offering with our shared website hosting plans. In case you want to use a PHP-powered app that needs InnoDB specifically, in order to be activated and to function correctly, you will not have to deal with any difficulties as the InnoDB database storage engine is available on our custom cloud hosting platform. No matter if you create a brand new database and activate an application manually or make use of our 1-click app installer instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our system as the default engine if the respective application needs it instead of MyISAM. In addition to the exceptional crash recovery offered by InnoDB, we also generate regular backups of all databases, so we can swiftly recover any MySQL database in your shared account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
InnoDB is included with all our semi-dedicated packages by default, so once you get a new account, you can go on and activate any PHP script-based web app that needs this particular MySQL database engine. Several engines are pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so when you set up a new database and begin installing an app manually, or opt to take advantage of the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated app installer tool, the engine for the database will be set on the basis of the concrete app’s requirements. This will allow you to activate and manage InnoDB-specific applications without encountering any complication and without having to configure any settings in your account. To be on the safe side, we will always have a one-week-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you erase or edit any content unintentionally, we can easily retrieve it.
InnoDB in VPS Hosting
If you buy a virtual private server from us, you’ll be able to make use of our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel to manage your web content. A Hepsia-managed Virtual Private Server will permit you to use any open-source script-driven application that needs InnoDB, as this database engine is an integral part of the software package that will be installed on your VPS server during its creation. When you set up a brand new database via the Control Panel, you’ll just need to begin installing an application – manually or using our application installer. InnoDB will be set as the default engine on the condition that the app in question requires it, so you won’t have to do anything else in your VPS account. Likewise, if an app needs MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this particular MySQL database.
InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting
Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is one of the options that you can pick on the order form when you purchase a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful type of web hosting, it is pretty likely that you will manage highly popular sites that will attract lots of visitors, and since InnoDB is one of the very best choices for such websites, we’ll enable it along with all the other software apps that come with a Hepsia-managed dedicated server. If you create a brand new MySQL database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any active MySQL database storage engine until you start installing a script, whether manually via your web browser or using the automatic scripts installer that is integrated into the hosting Control Panel. The required engine will be recognized automatically and will be assigned to that database, so you can activate scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need MyISAM, the default MySQL engine, without experiencing any difficulty.
