InnoDB is a MySQL database storage engine, which has been gaining popularity in recent years, as it offers a better overall performance and a faster database failure recovery in comparison with the default engine that is used by the MySQL RDBMS – MyISAM. InnoDB is preferred by numerous developers that write highly scalable software apps, due to the fact that it works much more efficiently with enormous volumes of data, while it keeps the server load low. Additionally, it uses row-level locking if any info should be modified, while many other engines lock the entire database table and hence require more time to process multiple successive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB complies with the "all-or-nothing" rule – if the entire data modification process cannot be completed for some reason, the operation is rolled back to prevent confusion or losing data. Magento and the newest Joomla releases are two instances of widely used PHP script-based software applications that have switched over to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Shared Website Hosting
While InnoDB is either a paid upgrade or it is not available at all with other website hosting service providers, it is an essential part of the standard set of features that we offer with our shared website hosting plans. If you’d like to make use of a script-driven application that requires InnoDB specifically, in order to be installed and to operate properly, you will not encounter any problems because the database engine is available on our in-house developed cloud web hosting platform. Irrespective of whether you set up a brand new MySQL database and install an app manually or make use of our 1-click application installer software instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the given application requires it rather than MyISAM. Besides the exceptional database failure recovery offered by InnoDB, we also carry out regular database backups, so that we can swiftly recover any database in your shared hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
InnoDB comes with each of our Linux semi-dedicated servers by default, so as soon as you get a new account, you can move on and activate any PHP-based software app that needs this database storage engine. A couple of engines are pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so when you create a brand-new database and start installing an application manually, or opt to use the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated app installer, the engine for the database will be picked depending on the prerequisites of the particular application. This will allow you to activate and run InnoDB-specific apps without any difficulty and without the need to edit any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To avoid any risk, we’ll always have a 1-week-old backup of all your databases, so if you remove or change any content by mistake, we can easily recover it.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
If you get a VPS server from us, you will be able to use our custom Hepsia Control Panel to manage your content. A Hepsia-managed Virtual Private Server will permit you to use any PHP-based software app that needs InnoDB, as this database engine is part of the software package that will be pre-installed on your Virtual Private Server during its configuration. When you create a brand-new database using the Control Panel, you’ll simply need to begin installing an app – manually or using our app installer tool. InnoDB will be set as the default engine given that the app in question needs it, so you won’t have to do anything else in your account. Identically, if a certain app requires MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this particular MySQL database.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
InnoDB is included as standard with all Linux dedicated service ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It’s an essential part of the default software package that will be pre-installed on all Hepsia-equipped dedicated servers, so as soon as your machine is set up, you’ll be able to log in and to install a various open-source script-based application that needs this database storage engine. If you set up a new database via the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine till you begin installing an app. As soon as the app activation wizard begins entering data into the database, the engine will be picked automatically on the basis of the requirements of the given app, so you can run both MyISAM and InnoDB without selecting either one specifically at any time. In this way, you can use a vast range of apps for your websites.
