InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL databases, which is used by well known PHP-driven software applications such as Magento and Joomla 3. It is perfect for scalable applications, as it works stunningly well when managing large data volumes. Instead of locking the whole database table to append new information to a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can carry out much more operations for the same length of time. Additionally, InnoDB offers a faster database crash recovery and supports database transactions and foreign keys – a set of rules that specify how data imports and modifications should be treated. In case a particular task hasn’t been fully completed for any reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the content in the database will be retained safe and sound and won’t be partially mixed with newly entered content.
InnoDB in Website Hosting
You can run any open-source script-powered web app that needs InnoDB in case you’ve got a Linux website hosting package with our company, as the MySQL database engine is present on our innovative cloud hosting platform by default. During the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will proceed impeccably in case this engine is needed. You can run applications that use the MyISAM engine without encountering any problem as well and, again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you won’t have to modify anything manually at any point. Furthermore, we will also carry out regular backups of all the databases that you’ve got in the shared account, so if you delete or overwrite something, we can swiftly get it back to the way it was on any of the past seven days.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you create a brand-new MySQL database through the Control Panel provided with each of our semi-dedicated server accounts and you start installing a PHP script-powered software application either manually or using our 1-click application installer, the MySQL database storage engine will be picked automatically depending on the requirements of the particular application. Since InnoDB is present on the cloud website hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated hosting account will be set up, it will be set as the default engine for any app that needs it without any manual intervention required on your end at any time. To avoid any risk of losing data if you update an application or if you delete a database by mistake, we’ll make backups of all your MySQL databases each and every day, so if anything happens, we can rescue your content.
InnoDB in VPS
All Linux VPS packages that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-installed, so you will be able to make use of any open-source script-based web app that needs this MySQL database engine without needing to configure anything manually. You can select Hepsia on the VPS order form and your brand-new server will be set up within 1 hour, so you can log in and start building your Internet sites straight away. When you create a new database and start the app activation process, our system will select the engine for that database automatically. In this way, you can run various applications simultaneously without the need to configure anything on the VPS server. You can set up a WordPress-powered blog that uses the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-based online shopping portal that makes use of InnoDB, for example.
InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a new dedicated server, you will be able to pick one of the 3 Control Panels offered by us – cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. Any server ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-installed, so you will not have to install this MySQL database engine manually to be able to manage script-powered apps that require it. InnoDB is used for scalable applications and since a dedicated server will supply you with all the system resources that you need in order to run large-scale sites, it’s pretty likely that you will use InnoDB. You’ll be able to use other engines as well, so if a specific app needs MyISAM instead of InnoDB, you will not encounter any problem while using it. The engine that will be used will be automatically recognized the moment the app installation commences, so you will not need to change any settings manually at any time.
