InnoDB is a MySQL storage engine, which has been gaining in popularity lately, because it offers a better overall performance and a faster database failure recovery in comparison with the default engine that is used by MySQL – MyISAM. InnoDB is preferred by plenty of developers that build scalable web apps, because it works better with huge amounts of data, while it keeps the server load low. Additionally, it locks only a single row in the database in case any information should be edited, whereas lots of other engines lock the entire database table and thus need much more time to perform several consecutive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB follows the "all-or-nothing" rule – in case the entire data modification process cannot be completed successfully for some reason, the operation is rolled back to prevent confusion or the loss of data. Magento and the newest Joomla versions are two instances of famous PHP script-driven software applications which have switched to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
While InnoDB is either not available or a paid upgrade with many web hosting providers, it’s an integral part of the default set of features offered with our cloud hosting packages. In case you’d like to make use of a script-powered software app that requires InnoDB specifically, in order to be installed and to perform correctly, you won’t encounter any difficulties because the MySQL storage engine is available on our in-house built cloud Internet hosting platform. Regardless of whether you create a brand new database and install an app manually or take advantage of our 1-click app installer instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the respective app needs it rather than MyISAM. Besides the remarkable database failure recovery that InnoDB is offering, we also make daily database backups, so that we can easily recover any MySQL database in your shared website hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
InnoDB comes with each of our semi-dedicated hosting by default, so as soon as you obtain a new account, you can go on and activate any PHP-powered application that needs this MySQL database engine. A few engines are pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so when you set up a brand-new database and start 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 selected on the basis of the particular app’s prerequisites. This will permit you to install and manage InnoDB-specific apps without any difficulties and without modifying any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To take no chances, we’ll always keep a 7-day-old backup of all your databases, so if you erase or edit any content accidentally, we can swiftly restore it.
InnoDB in VPS Hosting
All Linux VPS hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-installed, so you will be able to take advantage of any open-source script-powered app that needs the storage engine without having to set up anything manually. You can choose Hepsia on the VPS order page and your new VPS server will be up and running within one hour, so you can log in and begin building your Internet sites right away. Once you create a brand new database and begin the app activation process, our system will choose the engine for that MySQL database automatically. In this way, you can manage different applications at the same time without the need to update anything on the Virtual Private Server. You can set up a WordPress-based online journal that uses MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento-based e-commerce portal that uses the InnoDB engine, for example.
InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting
All dedicated servers hosting packages ordered with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel include a software bundle that’s pre-activated and among everything else, you’ll get the InnoDB storage engine, so you won’t need to install it manually in case you’d like to use PHP scripts that need it. All it takes to use such a script is to set up a new MySQL database and to begin the installation – as soon as the setup wizard acquires access to the database and starts importing content into it, InnoDB will be set as the default MySQL engine for this database provided that it is the one needed by the script. You’ll also be able to activate scripts that need the other very popular MySQL engine – MyISAM, so you won’t need to configure any settings on the dedicated server. This will allow you to activate different scripts on one single physical machine and to use the latter to its fullest capabilities.
