InnoDB is a very popular database engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got a number of pluses which make it the engine of choice for plenty of open-source script-driven software applications, including Joomla™ and Magento, which have shifted over to InnoDB permanently. For instance, adding large volumes of data will be faster with InnoDB, as it locks only one database row to execute a particular task, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the data is tackled. In simpler words, adding new or modifying existing data will either be fully completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back in case a certain issue appears in the meantime, which is why the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.
InnoDB in Website Hosting
Any open-source script-powered software application that needs InnoDB will function flawlessly on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform and the storage engine comes with all our website hosting
plans. Each time you create a MySQL database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation process is started, the engine that the database will use will be selected based on the app’s requirements without having to change any setting in your shared hosting account. InnoDB will be chosen automatically for any application that requires this particular engine and you will be able to get the most out of its full potential. We’ll store daily content backups, so in case you accidentally remove a database that you need or you overwrite a specific part of it, we will be able to restore the database the way it was just several hours ago.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
InnoDB is available with each of our Linux semi-dedicated packages
by default, so once you obtain a new account, you can move on and install any script-powered application that needs the database engine. A number of engines are pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so when you set up a brand new MySQL database and begin installing an application manually, or decide to make use of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated application installer tool, the engine for the database will be selected on the basis of the prerequisites of the specific app. This will allow you to install and run InnoDB-specific apps without having to cope with any problem and without the need to configure any settings in your account. To take no chances, we will always have a seven-day-old backup of all your databases, so if you remove or alter any content by accident, we can swiftly recover it.
InnoDB in VPS Hosting
In case our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel is chosen during the registration process for a new Linux VPS hosting packages
, InnoDB will be activated on the VPS server together with other essential pieces of software, so you will not have to do anything if you choose to use PHP script-powered applications that need this MySQL storage engine. The default MySQL engine, MyISAM, will be activated as well. You can set up a new MySQL database and begin the app installation process manually or using our one-click installer. The system will automatically recognize which engine the app in question needs and will assign it to the specific MySQL database, so the installation will continue impeccably and the app can enter its content into that database. Therefore, you can run apps with different prerequisites about the MySQL engine without the need to make any changes on your VPS server.
InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting
All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages
that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel come with a software bundle that’s pre-installed and besides everything else, you will get the InnoDB database storage engine, so you won’t need to install it manually in case you would like to use scripts that require it. All it takes to activate such a script is to set up a new database and to initiate the installation – once the script installation wizard receives access to the database in question and starts entering content into it, InnoDB will be set as the default engine for this database on the condition that it is the one needed by the particular script. You will also be able to run scripts that need MyISAM, the other widely used MySQL engine, so you will not have to change any settings on the server. This will permit you to use different scripts on a single server and to use it to its maximum potential.
