InnoDB is a popular storage engine for the MySQL database management system. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has many strong sides that make it the engine of choice for a lot of PHP script-powered software apps, among them Magento and Joomla, which have switched over to InnoDB permanently. For instance, adding large amounts of data will be much faster with InnoDB, as it locks only one row to accomplish an operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is handled. In simpler words, adding new or updating existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back if a certain issue shows up during the process, hence the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.
InnoDB in Hosting
Any PHP script-driven app that needs InnoDB will run impeccably on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform and the database engine is offered with all our hosting packages. Each time you create a MySQL database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation is started, the engine that the database will make use of will be selected on the basis of the app’s prerequisites without the need to edit any setting in your web hosting account. InnoDB will be chosen automatically for any app that requires this particular engine and you’ll be able to take advantage of its full potential. We will store daily backups of your content, so in case you accidentally erase a MySQL database that you need or you overwrite certain parts of it, we’ll be able to restore everything the way it was only a couple of hours earlier.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you create a new MySQL database from the Control Panel offered with each of our semi-dedicated server plans and you begin installing a script-powered application either manually or using our 1-click application installer, the MySQL database storage engine will be set automatically on the basis of the requirements of the specific app. Since InnoDB is present on the cloud hosting platform where your new account will be created, it will be set as the default engine for each application that needs it without any manual intervention needed on your end at any time. To prevent any chance of losing information if you update an app or if you delete a database unintentionally, we will generate backups of all your databases each and every day, so if anything goes wrong, we can restore your content.
InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting
If you get a virtual private server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, the InnoDB database engine will be included in the software pack that will be pre-installed on your Virtual Private Server before we hand it over to you. You won’t have to activate anything manually and you will be able to enable and manage any script-based web application that requires InnoDB when your Virtual Private Server is set up, which takes no more than 60 minutes after the order procedure itself. A number of engines are offered, so anytime you create a database through the Hepsia Control Panel, a particular engine will be selected when the app activation commences and our system will automatically recognize the engine that is required by the application in question. In case you have to use MyISAM, for instance, you won’t have to do anything different from installing the preferred application, whether manually or using our application installer tool.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you order a new dedicated server, you will be able to select any of the 3 Control Panels offered by our company – cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. Each dedicated server ordered with Hepsia comes with InnoDB pre-activated, so you will not need to add this database storage engine manually in order to be able to manage open-source script-powered web applications that require it. InnoDB is used by scalable apps and since a dedicated server will supply you with all the system resources that you need in order to manage very large Internet sites, it is pretty likely that you’ll use InnoDB. You’ll be able to use other engines as well, so in case a particular app needs MyISAM instead of InnoDB, you will not have any obstacle while running it. The engine that will be used will be recognized automatically once the app installation procedure commences, so you won’t need to update any setting manually at any time.
