InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by famous open-source script-driven applications such as Magento and Joomla v3. It is perfect for scalable apps, because it works remarkably well when managing large amounts of data. Instead of locking the whole table to enter new information into a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can handle much more tasks for the same period of time. Plus, InnoDB offers a much better database failure recovery and supports transactions and foreign keys – a set of rules that determine how data inserts and updates should be treated. If a particular operation has not been thoroughly completed for some reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the content in the database will be kept undamaged and won’t be partially mixed with newly entered content.
InnoDB in Shared Website Hosting
You’ll be able to run any script-powered application that requires InnoDB in case you’ve got a Linux shared website hosting service with our company, as the MySQL database engine is available on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform as standard. During the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will continue flawlessly if this engine is required. You can run apps which require the MyISAM engine without encountering any obstacle as well and, again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you won’t need to modify any setting manually at any point. In addition, we’ll also make daily backups of all the databases that you’ve got in your shared account, so if you delete or overwrite anything, we can quickly get it back to the way it was on any of the past 7 days.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
InnoDB is available with each of our Linux semi-dedicated services by default, so once you obtain a new semi-dedicated account, you can go on and install any PHP-based web application that requires the storage engine. A few engines are pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so when you create a brand-new MySQL database and start installing an app manually, or opt to use the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated app installer tool, the engine for the database will be selected depending on the requirements of the app in question. This will allow you to install and run InnoDB-specific applications without any problem and without the need to modify any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To take no chances, we’ll always keep a one-week-old backup of all your databases, so if you remove or edit any content by mistake, we can swiftly retrieve it.
InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting
If you order a virtual private server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, the InnoDB database engine will be an integral part of the default software bundle that will be installed on your server before we hand it over to you. You won’t have to set up anything manually and you’ll be able to enable and use any open-source script-driven application that needs InnoDB when your Virtual Private Server is set up, which takes no more than 1 hour after the order procedure itself. A couple of engines are offered, so every time you create a database via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a specific engine will be activated when the app installation begins and our system will recognize which engine is required by the app in question. If you need to use MyISAM, for example, you will not need to do anything different from installing the preferred application, whether manually or using our app installer.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you order a new dedicated server, you’ll be able to choose any of the 3 Control Panels that we offer – Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel. Each server ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-activated, so you will not have to activate this MySQL database engine manually in order to be able to run PHP-powered apps that require it. InnoDB is used for scalable apps and since a dedicated server will offer you all the resources that you need in order to run large-size Internet sites, it’s quite likely that you’ll use InnoDB. You’ll be able to use other engines as well, so if a given app needs MyISAM instead of InnoDB, you won’t have to deal with any difficulty while using it. The engine that will be used will be detected automatically the moment the app installation procedure commences, so you won’t need to tweak any settings manually at any time.
