InnoDB is a database engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by well known PHP-based applications like Magento and Joomla 3.x. It is excellent for scalable applications, since it performs stunningly well when processing immense data volumes. Rather than locking the entire database table to append new information to a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can process much more operations for the same length of time. Moreover, InnoDB offers a faster crash recovery and supports database transactions and foreign keys – a set of rules that specify how data inserts and modifications should be treated. In case a specific operation has not been thoroughly completed for any reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the content in the database will remain undamaged and will not be partially merged with newly entered content.
InnoDB in Web Hosting
InnoDB is available with all our Linux web hosting by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you can activate and manage any PHP-driven web application that needs the MySQL database storage engine without encountering any difficulty as soon as you open your shared website hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a certain MySQL database during the app activation, regardless of whether you use our single-click installer or create the MySQL database and activate the app manually, as long as the app requires InnoDB instead of the more famous MyISAM engine. We’ll maintain daily backups of all your databases, so you can rest assured that you will never lose any content if you erase a database accidentally or you overwrite some crucial information – you’ll simply have to touch base with us and we will restore the database back to normal.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you create a brand new MySQL database through the hosting Control Panel included with all our semi-dedicated server accounts and you begin installing a script-driven web application either manually or using our single-click application installer, the MySQL database storage engine will be selected automatically based on the prerequisites of the specific app. As InnoDB is present on the cloud platform where your new semi-dedicated server account will be created, it will be set as the default engine for each application that requires it without any manual action required on your end at any point. To avoid any risk of losing data if you update an app or if you remove a database accidentally, we’ll perform backups of all your databases every day, so if anything goes wrong, we can retrieve your content.
InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting
If you buy a virtual private server from our company, you will be able to make use of our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel to manage your web content. A Hepsia-managed Virtual Private Server will allow you to manage any script-driven web app that needs InnoDB, as this particular MySQL database engine is included in the default software package that will be pre-installed on your server during its setup. When you create a brand-new MySQL database through the hosting Control Panel, you simply have to begin installing an application – manually or using our app installer. InnoDB will be set as the default engine if the application in question requires it, so you won’t need to do anything else in your VPS account. Likewise, if a certain app needs MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this concrete MySQL database.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you acquire a new dedicated server, you’ll be able to choose any of the 3 hosting Control Panels that we are offering – DirectAdmin, cPanel and Hepsia. Any dedicated server ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-installed, so you won’t need to install this database engine manually to be able to manage open-source script-powered applications that need it. InnoDB is used by scalable apps and since a dedicated server will supply you with all the system resources that you need to manage large-size sites, it is quite possible that you’ll use InnoDB. You will be able to make use of other engines as well, so in case a given app requires MyISAM instead of InnoDB, you won’t have to deal with any predicament while using it. The engine that will be used will be automatically recognized when the app installation begins, so you will not have to tweak any settings manually at any moment.
