InnoDB is a MySQL database storage engine, which has been gaining popularity in recent years, because it provides a much better overall performance and a faster crash recovery compared with the default engine that’s used by the MySQL database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is endorsed by many developers that run highly scalable apps, since it works much more efficiently with enormous volumes of data, while it keeps the server processing load low. Additionally, it uses row-level locking if any information should be modified, while many other engines lock the entire table and therefore need much more time to carry out several consecutive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB follows the "all-or-nothing" rule – if the entire data modification procedure cannot be completed successfully for some reason, the action is rolled back to avoid confusion or data loss. Magento and the latest releases of Joomla are two instances of popular script-powered web applications that have shifted over to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Website Hosting
While InnoDB is either not available or a paid upgrade with many hosting companies, it’s part of the default set of features that we offer with our website hosting plans. If you would like to use a PHP-based software application that requires InnoDB in particular, in order to be installed and to operate properly, you won’t experience any difficulties because the InnoDB storage engine is available on our custom cloud Internet hosting platform. Irrespective of whether you set up a brand new database and activate an app manually or take advantage of our one-click application installer instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the specific app needs InnoDB instead of MyISAM. Besides the excellent database failure recovery that InnoDB is offering, we also keep regular database backups, so we can swiftly restore any MySQL database in your shared web hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can install a PHP-based web app that requires InnoDB with any of our semi-dedicated server packages, since all the accounts are set up on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform where the MySQL storage engine is installed. A new MySQL database can be created in two different ways – manually through the Database Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, or automatically – if you use our single-click app installer tool. In either case, the needed engine will be selected automatically once the app’s activation starts, so you won’t have to configure anything manually, regardless of whether the application requires InnoDB or the more widely used MyISAM. On top of that, we’ll always be able to recover any of your databases in case you unintentionally remove one, as we generate several backups every day, each of which is saved for 1 week.
InnoDB in VPS
If you purchase a virtual private server from us, you’ll be able to take advantage of our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel to manage your web content. A Hepsia-equipped VPS will allow you to manage any PHP script-based software app that needs InnoDB, as this MySQL database engine is an essential part of the standard software package that will be pre-installed on the Virtual Private Server during its configuration. When you set up a brand-new MySQL database via the hosting Control Panel, you will simply need to begin installing an app – manually or using our application installer tool. InnoDB will be set as the default engine as long as the app in question requires it, so you won’t have to do anything else in your VPS account. Equivalently, if a given app needs MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this particular database.
InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting
InnoDB is included by default with all Linux dedicated hosting services ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It is an essential part of the software bundle that we install on all Hepsia-equipped servers, so once your physical machine is set up, you will be able to sign in and to install any script-based software application that requires this particular MySQL storage engine. When you create a new database via the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine till you begin installing an application. As soon as the app setup wizard begins entering data into the newly created database, the engine will be selected automatically in accordance with the requirements of the respective application, so you can use both MyISAM and InnoDB without having to select either of them explicitly at any moment. Therefore, you can make use of a large variety of apps for your Internet sites.
