InnoDB is a MySQL database storage engine, which has been gaining in popularity lately, because it provides a better overall performance and an improved crash recovery in comparison to the default engine used by the MySQL database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is used by many developers that create scalable software applications, due to the fact that it works better with large amounts of data, while it keeps the server load low. Additionally, it locks only a single database row if any info should be modified, while lots of other engines lock the entire table and therefore need more time to handle multiple consecutive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB complies with the "all-or-nothing" rule – if the entire data modification cannot be completed successfully for some reason, the action is rolled back to avoid confusion or the loss of data. Magento and the newest editions of Joomla are two examples of famous script-driven apps which have shifted over to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting
You’ll be able to run any script-driven app that requires InnoDB in case you have a Linux cloud web hosting with our company, as the MySQL storage engine is present on our advanced cloud hosting platform as standard. Throughout the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will proceed flawlessly if this engine is needed. You can activate applications which need the MyISAM engine without encountering any obstacle as well and, again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you will not have to edit any setting manually at any time. In addition, we will also carry out regular backups of all the databases that you have in your shared web hosting account, so if 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 Servers
InnoDB is available with each of our Linux semi-dedicated servers by default, so once you buy a new account, you can go on and install any script-powered web application that needs this storage engine. A number of engines are pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so when you create a brand-new MySQL database and begin installing an application manually, or opt to make use of the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated application installer, the engine for the database will be chosen based on the concrete app’s requirements. This will permit you to activate and run InnoDB-specific applications without any difficulties and without the need to change any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To take no chances, we’ll always keep a one-week-old backup of all your databases, so if you erase or change any content by mistake, we can quickly recover it.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
All Linux VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-installed, so you will be able to take advantage of any open-source script-powered web app that requires this particular MySQL database engine without needing to activate anything manually. You can choose Hepsia on the VPS order form and your brand-new server will be ready within 60 minutes, so you can log in and begin building your web sites straight away. When you create a brand-new MySQL database and start the app installation process, our system will set the engine for this MySQL database automatically. In this way, you can manage various applications at the same time without having to edit anything on the server. You can have a WordPress online blog that makes use of the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-powered online store that makes use of the InnoDB engine, for example.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
Our Hepsia Control Panel is one of the options that you can pick on the order form when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. As this is the most powerful kind of web hosting, it is rather likely that you will run highly popular sites that will draw many visitors, and since InnoDB is among the very best choices for such sites, we will activate it together with all the other software applications that are available with a Hepsia-equipped server. When you create a new MySQL database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any active database engine till you start installing an open-source script, whether manually through your web browser or using the automatic scripts installer that is included in the Control Panel. The required engine will be detected and will be assigned to that database, so you can activate scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without any problem.
