InnoDB is a database storage engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by widespread script-powered software applications such as Joomla 3.x and Magento. It is excellent for scalable apps, as it performs stunningly well when managing enormous data volumes. Instead of locking the whole table to insert new information in a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can process a lot more tasks for the same length of time. Besides, InnoDB offers a better database crash recovery and supports transactions and foreign key constraints – a set of rules that indicate how data inserts and modifications should be treated. If a specific operation has not been thoroughly completed for whatever reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the database content will be preserved intact and won’t be partially mixed with newly inserted content.
InnoDB in Shared Hosting
InnoDB is available with all our Linux shared hosting by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you’ll be able to install and manage any open-source script-powered web app which requires the MySQL database storage engine without encountering any problem as soon as you open your shared account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a specific MySQL database during the app installation, no matter if you take advantage of our one-click installer or create the MySQL database and activate the application manually, on the condition that the app requires it instead of the more popular MyISAM engine. We’ll carry out regular backups of all your databases, so you can rest assured that you’ll never lose any content if you erase a database by accident or you overwrite some essential info – you simply have to touch base with us and we’ll restore your data back to normal.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated hosting include InnoDB and you will be able to get the most out of all the features of this MySQL database engine with any PHP script-based web application that requires it. InnoDB is one of the engines that we have on our cloud website hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the requirements of the given app. You won’t have to do anything manually in order to enable InnoDB, because it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an application – whether manually or using our single-click application installer. To avoid any risk, we will maintain regular backups of all your databases, so if something goes wrong after some update or if you erase some content unintentionally, we’ll be able to restore your database the way it was on any of the past 7 days.
InnoDB in VPS Hosting
All Linux VPS hosting services that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB already activated, so you’ll be able to use any script-driven app that requires the MySQL storage engine without installing anything manually. You can choose Hepsia on the VPS order page and your new Virtual Private Server will be ready within 60 minutes, so you can log in and start creating your websites right away. Once you create a brand-new MySQL database and begin the app activation process, our system will choose the engine for that MySQL database automatically. In this way, you can run various apps simultaneously without having to configure anything on the Virtual Private Server. You can create a WordPress-driven personal journal that uses the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento web store that makes use of the InnoDB engine, for example.
InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you purchase a new dedicated server, you’ll be able to pick one of the three Control Panels that we are offering – DirectAdmin, cPanel and Hepsia. Any server ordered with Hepsia comes with InnoDB pre-activated, so you will not need to install this MySQL database storage engine manually to be able to run PHP-driven software apps that need it. InnoDB is used by scalable apps and since a dedicated server will provide you with all the system resources that you need to run large-size Internet sites, it’s pretty likely that you will resort to InnoDB. You’ll be able to make use of other engines too, so in case a certain app requires MyISAM instead of InnoDB, you won’t encounter any problem while running it. The engine that will be used will be automatically recognized as soon as the app installation commences, so you won’t need to configure any settings manually at any point.
