InnoDB is a MySQL database storage engine, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years, because it offers a better overall performance and a faster database crash recovery in comparison with the default engine that’s used by the MySQL DBMS – MyISAM. InnoDB is preferred by plenty of programmers that build highly scalable applications, since it works much more effectively with large data volumes, while it keeps the server load at a minimum. Additionally, it locks only a single row in the database if anything should be modified, whereas many other engines lock the entire database table and therefore need more time to carry out several sequential tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB complies with the "all-or-nothing" rule – in case the entire data modification process cannot be completed successfully for any reason, the action is rolled back to avoid scrambling or data loss. Magento and the latest Joomla versions are two instances of widely used PHP-based apps which have moved to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting
InnoDB is offered with all our Linux cloud website hosting by default, not as a paid upgrade or upon request, so you’ll be able to activate and run any PHP script-powered web application which needs the database storage engine without encountering any difficulty as soon as you order your shared hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a particular database during the app activation process, regardless of whether you make use of our single-click installer or create the database and set up the app manually, as long as the application requires it instead of the more famous MyISAM engine. We’ll carry out daily database backups, so you can be sure that you won’t ever lose any content if you erase a database by accident or you overwrite some essential information – you will simply have to notify us and we’ll restore your content back to normal.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated servers come with InnoDB and you can take full advantage of all the features offered by this MySQL storage engine with any PHP script-powered software application that requires it. It is one of the engines that are available on our cloud platform, so the one that will be used depends on the prerequisites of the given app. You won’t have to do anything manually to activate InnoDB, as it will be set as the default engine when you install an app – whether manually or using our one-click app installer tool. To avoid any risk, we will keep daily database backups, so if anything goes wrong after some update or if you erase some data by accident, we’ll be able to restore your database the way it was on any of the past seven days.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
All Linux VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-activated, so you’ll be able to run any PHP script-driven app that requires this database engine without needing to activate anything manually. You can choose Hepsia on the VPS order form and your brand new Virtual Private Server will be set up within 60 minutes, so you can sign in and begin building your sites right away. When you create a brand new MySQL database and start the app activation process, our system will choose the engine for that database automatically. In this way, you can manage various applications simultaneously without updating anything on the VPS server. You can create a WordPress-driven online journal that uses MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento-powered e-commerce site that uses the InnoDB engine, for example.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is among the features which you can select on the order form when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. Since this is the most powerful kind of web hosting, it is pretty likely that you’ll manage highly popular sites that will attract plenty of people, and since InnoDB is one of the very best choices for such websites, we will activate it together with all the other software applications that are offered with a Hepsia-equipped server. When you set up a brand new MySQL database in your account, there won’t be any active storage engine till you begin installing a PHP script, whether manually through your web browser or using the automatic scripts installer tool that is included in the hosting Control Panel. The necessary engine will be recognized and will be set for that database, so you can activate scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that need MyISAM, the default MySQL engine, without the need to deal with any impediment.
