InnoDB is a database storage engine for MySQL databases, which is used by popular PHP-powered web apps such as Magento and Joomla v3. It’s perfect for scalable applications, as it works very well when handling immense amounts of data. Rather than locking the entire table to import new information into a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can perform much more operations for the same period of time. In addition, InnoDB offers a much faster database crash recovery and supports transactions and foreign keys – a set of rules that specify how data inserts and updates should be handled. In case a certain task hasn’t been thoroughly completed for whatever reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the content in the database will remain undamaged and will not be partially mixed with newly entered content.
InnoDB in Website Hosting
While InnoDB is either not available or a paid upgrade with many other hosting providers, it’s an essential part of the standard set of services offered with our website hosting packages. If you wish to use a PHP script-powered application that needs InnoDB in particular, in order to be activated and to operate correctly, you won’t face any problems as the InnoDB database engine is available on our in-house built cloud Internet hosting platform. Regardless of whether you create a new MySQL database and install an app manually or make use of our 1-click app installer tool, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the given app needs it instead of MyISAM. Besides the incredible database crash recovery that InnoDB is offering, we also make daily database backups, so that we can easily restore any MySQL database in your shared web hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated hosting plans support InnoDB and you can use all the features of this MySQL database engine with any PHP-driven web app that requires it. It is among the engines that are available on our cloud hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the particular app’s requirements. You won’t have to do anything manually in order to enable InnoDB, because it will be set as the default engine when you install an application – whether manually or using our one-click application installer. To avoid any risk, we will store regular MySQL database backups, so if anything goes wrong after some update or if you delete some content unintentionally, we’ll be able to get the database back to the way it was on any of the past 7 days.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
If you choose a VPS server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, the InnoDB storage engine will be an essential part of the standard software pack that will be pre-installed on your VPS server before we give it to you. You will not need to activate anything manually and you’ll be able to install and run any script-powered web app that requires InnoDB when your VPS is up and running, which takes no more than sixty minutes after the order process itself. A few engines are available, so whenever you create a MySQL database via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a specific engine will be selected once the app installation process commences and our system will automatically recognize the engine that is required by the app in question. If you need MyISAM, for example, you will not have to do anything different from installing the preferred app, whether manually or using our app installer.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is one of the options which you can select on the order page when you buy a dedicated server from us. As this is the most powerful kind of hosting, it’s very likely that you will run very popular Internet sites that will draw plenty of individuals, and since InnoDB is among the best options for such Internet sites, we will activate it along with all the other software applications that are offered with a Hepsia-managed server. If you set up a brand new database in your account, there won’t be any active MySQL database storage engine until you start installing a script, whether manually via your Internet browser or using the automatic scripts installer that is included in the hosting Control Panel. The necessary engine will be detected and will be set for that database, so you can use scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without running into any impediment.
