InnoDB is a database storage engine for MySQL databases, which is used by popular PHP script-driven software applications like Magento and Joomla 3.x. It is excellent for scalable applications, since it works remarkably well when managing large data volumes. Rather than locking the entire database table to import new information into a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can process a lot more operations for the same length of time. What’s more, InnoDB offers a better database crash recovery and supports database transactions and foreign keys – a set of rules that determine how data imports and modifications should be handled. If a given task has not been entirely completed for some reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the information in the database will be kept safe and sound and won’t be partially mixed with newly appended content.
InnoDB in Web Hosting
While InnoDB is either not offered or it is a paid upgrade with many hosting companies, it’s an integral part of the standard set of features that we’re offering with our web hosting packages. In case you would like to use a PHP-powered web application that needs InnoDB particularly, in order to be activated and to perform properly, you will not have any impediments since the database storage engine is available on our custom cloud Internet hosting platform. Irrespective of whether you set up a brand new database and install an app manually or take advantage of our 1-click application installer instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the respective app needs InnoDB rather than MyISAM. In addition to the outstanding crash recovery that InnoDB is offering, we also generate daily database backups, so we can easily restore any MySQL database in your shared web hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
InnoDB comes with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages by default, so the moment you obtain a new account, you can go ahead and activate any open-source script-based app that requires this storage engine. A number of engines are installed on our cloud hosting platform, so when you create a brand-new database and start installing an app manually, or opt to take advantage of the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated application installer tool, the engine for the database will be selected depending on the requirements of the given application. This will permit you to activate and run InnoDB-specific applications without running into any difficulty and without the need to change any settings in your account. To avoid any risk, we will always keep a 7-day-old backup of all your databases, so if you erase or edit any content accidentally, we can easily restore it.
InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting
All Linux VPS web hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB already installed, so you will be able to use any script-driven software app that needs this particular MySQL database storage engine without the need to set up anything manually. You can select Hepsia on the VPS order form and your new server will be set up within one hour, so you can log in and start building your sites straight away. When you set up a new database and start the app installation process, our system will set the engine for that database automatically. Thus, you can activate various applications simultaneously without modifying anything on the Virtual Private Server. You can have a WordPress-based weblog that uses MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento web store that makes use of InnoDB, for instance.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Our Hepsia Control Panel is one of the options that you can choose on the server configuration page when you purchase a dedicated server from us. As this is the most powerful type of website hosting, it’s pretty likely that you’ll run highly popular Internet sites that will draw lots of individuals, and since InnoDB is one of the best choices for such sites, we’ll activate it together with all the other software applications that are offered with a Hepsia-equipped server. When you create a new MySQL database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any active MySQL database engine until you start installing a PHP script, whether manually via your browser or using the automatic script installer that is integrated into the hosting Control Panel. The necessary engine will be detected automatically and will be assigned to that database, so you can activate scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without having any obstacle.
