InnoDB is a database storage engine for MySQL databases, which is used by widespread PHP script-based software apps such as Joomla 3 and Magento. It is excellent for scalable apps, because it works amazingly well when handling huge data volumes. Instead of locking the whole database table to insert new information in a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can perform a lot more operations for the same length of time. Besides, InnoDB offers a faster crash recovery and supports transactions and foreign keys – a set of rules that indicate how data inserts and modifications should be handled. If a particular task hasn’t been fully completed for any reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the database content will stay safe and sound and won’t be partially mixed with newly inserted content.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
Any open-source script-based web application that requires InnoDB will function impeccably on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform and the storage engine comes with all our cloud hosting packages. Each time you create a database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation process is initiated, the engine that the database will use will be selected on the basis of the app’s requirements without having to change any setting in your shared hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically for any app that requires this particular engine and you’ll be able to make the most of its full capacity. We will perform daily backups of your content, so if you unintentionally delete a MySQL database that is important to you or you overwrite certain parts of it, we will be able to restore the database the way it was only several hours earlier.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
InnoDB is available with all our Linux semi-dedicated plans by default, so as soon as you create a new account, you can move on and activate any PHP-based web application that requires this particular database engine. A few engines are installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so when you set up a new database and start installing an application manually, or opt to take advantage of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated application installer tool, the engine for the database will be set on the basis of the given app’s prerequisites. This will allow you to install and run InnoDB-specific apps without the need to deal with any complication and without needing to modify any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To be on the safe side, we’ll always have a seven-day-old backup of all your databases, so if you remove or change any content by mistake, we can easily restore it.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
If you pick a VPS server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, the InnoDB database storage engine will be an integral part of the default software bundle that will be pre-installed on your VPS server before we hand it over to you. You won’t have to configure anything manually and you’ll be able to enable and manage any script-driven application that needs InnoDB when your VPS is ready, which takes no more than 1 hour after the order submission procedure itself. A few engines are available, so every time you set up a database using the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a specific engine will be selected when the app installation begins and our system will automatically recognize which engine is required by the app in question. In case you need to use MyISAM, for example, you won’t need to do anything different from installing the desired app, whether manually or using our application installer.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the options that you can choose on the server configuration page when you buy a dedicated server from our company. As this is the most powerful kind of website hosting, it’s quite likely that you will run highly popular sites that will draw plenty of people, and since InnoDB is one of the very best options for such Internet sites, we will enable it along with all the other software applications that come with a Hepsia-managed dedicated server. When you set up a brand-new database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any activated MySQL database storage engine till you begin installing a script, whether manually through your web browser or using the automatic scripts installer tool that is available in the Control Panel. The needed engine will be detected and will be assigned to that database, so you can run scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without coming across any impediment.
