InnoDB is a popular storage engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has many strong sides that have made it the engine of choice for plenty of PHP-based web apps, including Magento and Joomla™, which have switched over to InnoDB permanently. For instance, importing huge data volumes will be faster with InnoDB, because it locks only one database row to execute a certain task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable applications. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is treated. To put it simply, appending new or updating existent data will either be fully completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back in case a given issue appears during the process, which is why the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.
InnoDB in Website Hosting
While InnoDB is either not offered or it is a paid upgrade with other hosting providers, it is an essential part of the standard set of features offered with our website hosting
packages. If you would like to use a PHP script-driven software app that needs InnoDB specifically, in order to be installed and to perform properly, you will not experience any difficulties because the storage engine is available on our custom-developed cloud website hosting platform. Irrespective of whether you set up a new database and activate an app manually or use our 1-click application installer tool, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our system as the default engine if the specific app requires InnoDB rather than MyISAM. Besides the exceptional crash recovery offered by InnoDB, we also maintain daily database backups, so that we can easily recover any database in your shared website hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
InnoDB is offered with each of our Linux semi-dedicated services
by default, so once you obtain a new account, you can go on and install any script-driven web application that needs this particular storage engine. A few engines are installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so when you create a brand new database and begin installing an app manually, or decide to make use of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated application installer, the engine for the database will be picked based on the requirements of the application in question. This will permit you to install and run InnoDB-specific applications without needing to deal with any impediment and without having to modify any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To be on the safe side, we’ll always have a 1-week-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you remove or change any content accidentally, we can easily rescue it.
InnoDB in VPS Hosting
In case our custom Hepsia Control Panel is picked during the registration process for your new Linux virtual private servers
, InnoDB will be installed on the VPS server together with other necessary software, so you won’t have to do anything if you choose to make use of script-powered software apps that require this MySQL database engine. The default MySQL engine – MyISAM, will be activated as well. You can create a new MySQL database and start the app installation manually or using our 1-click installation tool. The system will recognize the engine that the app in question requires and will set it for the specific MySQL database, so the installation will proceed flawlessly and the application can enter its content into that database. In this way, you can manage apps with different prerequisites with regard to the MySQL engine without the need to make any modifications on your VPS.
InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting
InnoDB comes by default with all Linux dedicated web hosting
ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It’s included in the standard software bundle that will be pre-installed on all Hepsia-equipped dedicated servers, so as soon as your physical machine is set up, you will be able to sign in and to install any type of open-source script-driven web app that needs this storage engine. When you set up a new MySQL database via the Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine till you begin installing an app. As soon as the app activation wizard starts dumping content in the newly created database, the engine will be set automatically on the basis of the prerequisites of the application in question, so you can run both MyISAM and InnoDB without having to select either of them explicitly at any point. Therefore, you can use a huge selection of applications for your Internet sites.
