InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining in popularity lately, as it offers a much better overall performance and an improved database crash recovery compared with the default engine that’s used by the MySQL RDBMS – MyISAM. InnoDB is endorsed by lots of devs that build highly scalable applications, since it works better with immense amounts of data, while it keeps the server load at a minimum. Additionally, it uses row-level locking if any information should be edited, while lots of other engines lock the entire table and therefore require more time to perform multiple successive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB abides by a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – if the modification of the entire data cannot be completed successfully for whatever reason, the action is rolled back to avoid confusion or the loss of data. Magento and the newest releases of Joomla are two instances of widespread PHP script-driven web apps which have switched to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Website Hosting
You’ll be able to use any open-source script-based software app that requires InnoDB if you’ve got a Linux website hosting with our company, as the MySQL database engine is available on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform as standard. Throughout the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will proceed impeccably in case this engine is required. You can activate apps that need the MyISAM engine without encountering any obstacle as well and, once again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you won’t have to update anything manually at any point. What’s more, we’ll also make daily backups of all the MySQL databases that you have in your shared hosting account, so in case you delete or overwrite anything, we can easily 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 from the Control Panel offered with each of our semi-dedicated server accounts and you start installing a PHP script-based web application either manually or using our single-click app installer, the database storage engine will be picked automatically based on the prerequisites of the specific app. Since InnoDB is present on the cloud website hosting platform where your new account will be created, it will be set as the default engine for any application that needs it without any manual action required on your end at any point. To prevent any risk of losing information if you update an application or if you delete a database unintentionally, we will make a backup of all your databases each day, so if something goes wrong, we can rescue your data.
InnoDB in VPS
When you acquire a virtual private server from our company, you will be able to take advantage of our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel to manage your web content. A Hepsia-managed Virtual Private Server will permit you to manage any script-based application which needs InnoDB, as this particular MySQL storage engine is included in the default software package that will be installed on your server during its configuration. When you create a brand new database through the hosting Control Panel, you will just need to begin installing an app – manually or using our app installer tool. InnoDB will be set as the default engine as long as the app in question needs it, so you won’t need to do anything else in your VPS account. In the same manner, if a given application needs MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this specific MySQL database.
InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting
InnoDB is included by default with all Linux dedicated hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It’s part of the software package that will be pre-installed on all Hepsia-managed servers, so as soon as your physical machine is ready, you will be able to sign in and to activate any PHP-powered web application that requires this MySQL database engine. If you set up a new MySQL database through the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine until you begin installing an app. As soon as the app setup wizard begins inserting content into the newly created database, the engine will be selected automatically on the basis of the requirements of the respective app, so you can use both MyISAM and InnoDB without selecting either of them specifically at any time. In this way, you can use an immense variety of apps for your websites.
