InnoDB is a database engine for MySQL databases, which is used by famous open-source script-based software apps such as Magento and Joomla 3. It is ideal for scalable applications, since it works astonishingly well when handling enormous data volumes. Rather than locking the whole database table to import new information into a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can process a lot more tasks for the same period of time. Also, InnoDB offers a faster database failure recovery and supports database transactions and foreign key constraints – a set of rules that determine how data imports and updates should be handled. In case a given task hasn’t been entirely completed for any reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the information in the database will stay intact and won’t be partially mixed with newly inserted content.
InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting
You’ll be able to make use of any script-powered app that needs InnoDB in case you’ve got a Linux cloud web hosting package with us, as the MySQL database storage engine is available on our advanced cloud hosting platform by default. Throughout the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will proceed flawlessly in case this engine is needed. You can activate applications which require the MyISAM engine without encountering any difficulty as well and, once again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you won’t need to edit any setting manually at any time. On top of that, we will also create daily backups of all the MySQL databases that you’ve got in your shared web hosting account, so in case you erase or overwrite something, we can easily get it back to the way it was on any of the previous seven days.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
InnoDB comes with all our Linux semi-dedicated packages by default, so the moment you buy a new account, you can go on and activate any PHP script-based software application that needs this particular MySQL database storage engine. A number of engines are pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so when you create a new MySQL database and begin installing an app manually, or opt to take advantage of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated application installer, the engine for the database will be chosen based on the prerequisites of the specific app. This will permit you to activate and manage InnoDB-specific applications without any difficulties and without having to change any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To take no chances, we’ll always keep a 1-week-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you erase or change any content by accident, we can swiftly recover it.
InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting
All Linux VPS web hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB already installed, so you will be able to run any PHP-driven software app that requires the MySQL storage engine without having to set up anything manually. You can pick Hepsia on the VPS order form and your brand-new Virtual Private Server will be ready within 1 hour, so you can log in and start building your sites right away. Once you set up a new MySQL database and start the app installation process, our system will choose the engine for this database automatically. In this way, you can activate different apps at the same time without modifying anything on the Virtual Private Server. You can have a WordPress-driven personal journal that uses MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento-based e-commerce website that uses the InnoDB engine, for example.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you buy a new dedicated server, you will be able to select one of the three hosting Control Panels offered by our company – DirectAdmin, cPanel and Hepsia. Each dedicated server ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-activated, so you will not need to enable this MySQL database storage engine manually so as to be able to manage script-powered software apps that require it. InnoDB is used by scalable applications and since a dedicated server will give you all the resources that you require to manage large-size websites, it’s quite likely that you will resort to InnoDB. You’ll be able to make use of other engines too, so if a given application requires MyISAM instead of InnoDB, you will not encounter any problem while running it. The engine that will be used will be automatically recognized the moment the app installation process starts, so you won’t need to alter any settings manually at any time.
