InnoDB is a popular storage engine for the MySQL database management system. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got a lot of strengths which have made it the engine of choice for plenty of PHP script-driven web applications, such as Joomla and Magento, which have moved to InnoDB permanently. For instance, adding enormous data volumes will be much faster with InnoDB, because it locks only a single database row to carry out a given operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is handled. In simpler words, appending new or modifying existent data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be annulled and the procedure will be rolled back if a certain problem occurs in the meantime, which is why the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.
InnoDB in Shared Hosting
While InnoDB is either a paid upgrade or it is not available at all with many other hosting service providers, it’s part of the standard set of features that we’re offering with our shared hosting packages. In case you wish to use an open-source script-driven web app that requires InnoDB specifically, in order to be installed and to function properly, you will not have any impediments as the storage engine is available on our custom-developed cloud website hosting platform. Irrespective of whether you set up a new MySQL database and activate an application manually or take advantage of our 1-click application installer software tool, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our system as the default engine if the given app needs InnoDB instead of MyISAM. In addition to the amazing database crash recovery offered by InnoDB, we also store regular database backups, so that we can easily recover any MySQL database in your shared web hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
InnoDB is included with each of our Linux semi-dedicated services by default, so the moment you buy a new account, you can go ahead and install any open-source script-powered application that needs this MySQL database storage engine. Several engines are installed on our cloud platform, so when you create a new database and begin installing an app manually, or opt to take advantage of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated app installer tool, the engine for the database will be set based on the requirements of the respective app. This will permit you to install and manage InnoDB-specific applications without running into any difficulty and without needing to edit any settings in your account. To avoid any risk, we’ll always keep a 7-day-old backup of all your databases, so if you remove or edit any content accidentally, we can easily retrieve it.
InnoDB in VPS Hosting
When you obtain a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to make use of our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel to manage your content. A Hepsia-managed VPS will permit you to activate any open-source script-powered web app which requires InnoDB, as this database storage engine is part of the default software package that will be pre-installed on the Virtual Private Server during its creation. When you create a new MySQL database through the Control Panel, you just have to start installing an application – manually or using our application installer tool. InnoDB will be set as the default engine in case the application in question requires it, so you will not need to do anything else in your account. Similarly, if a given app requires MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this concrete database.
InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you order a new dedicated server, you’ll be able to select one of the 3 Control Panels offered by our company – Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel. Any dedicated server ordered with Hepsia comes with InnoDB pre-installed, so you will not need to install this MySQL database engine manually to be able to run open-source script-driven web apps that need it. InnoDB is used by scalable apps and since a dedicated server will offer you all the system resources that you require to manage very large sites, it is pretty likely that you’ll use InnoDB. You’ll be able to use other engines too, so if a given application needs MyISAM instead of InnoDB, you won’t have to deal with any obstacle while running it. The engine that will be used will be automatically detected once the app installation commences, so you will not need to modify any settings manually whatsoever.
