InnoDB is a database storage engine for MySQL databases, which is used by widely used script-powered web applications such as Joomla 3 and Magento. It’s excellent for scalable apps, since it works exceptionally well when managing enormous data volumes. Rather than locking the whole database table to enter new information into a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can handle a lot more tasks for the same period of time. Moreover, InnoDB offers a much better crash recovery and supports database transactions and foreign key constraints – a set of rules that prescribe how data imports and updates should be handled. If a certain operation hasn’t been entirely completed for some reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the information in the database will be preserved intact and will not be partially mixed with newly inserted content.
InnoDB in Website Hosting
While InnoDB is either not offered or it is a paid upgrade with many web hosting companies, it’s included in the standard set of features that we’re offering with our website hosting plans. In case you wish to use a PHP-powered software application that requires InnoDB specifically, in order to be activated and to function properly, you won’t encounter any impediments since the InnoDB database engine is available on our in-house developed cloud website hosting platform. No matter if you set up a new MySQL database and install an app manually or take advantage of our one-click application installer instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our system as the default engine if the application needs InnoDB rather than MyISAM. Besides the outstanding database crash recovery offered by InnoDB, we also maintain daily backups of all databases, so that we can swiftly recover any database in your shared web hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
InnoDB comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans by default, so once you get a new account, you can go ahead and install any PHP-driven software application that needs the storage engine. A couple of engines are pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so when you set up a brand-new database and begin installing an application manually, or decide to use the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated app installer tool, the engine for the database will be set based on the requirements of the particular app. This will permit you to install and manage InnoDB-specific apps without having to deal with any difficulty and without the need to configure any settings in your account. To be on the safe side, we’ll always have a one-week-old backup of all your databases, so if you delete or alter any content unintentionally, we can easily rescue it.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
If you order a VPS server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB database engine will be an essential part of the default software package that will be installed on your Virtual Private Server before we hand it over to you. You will not need to configure anything manually and you will be able to install and run any script-driven software app that requires InnoDB when your VPS is set up, which takes no more than one hour after the order process itself. A number of engines are offered, so anytime you set up a database through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a specific engine will be picked once the app activation process commences and our system will automatically recognize which engine is required by the application in question. If you need MyISAM, for example, you won’t need to do anything different from installing the desired app, whether manually or using our app installer.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
InnoDB is available as standard with all dedicated web hosting plans ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It is part of the software package that will be pre-installed on all Hepsia-managed servers, so once your machine is up and running, you will be able to log in and to install any script-driven software app that requires this database engine. If you set up a new MySQL database via the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine until you start installing an app. Once the app setup wizard starts entering content into the newly created database, the engine will be set automatically in accordance with the prerequisites of the application in question, so you can use both InnoDB and MyISAM without selecting either one of them specifically at any time. Therefore, you can make use of a vast range of apps for your Internet sites.
