InnoDB is a very popular database engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has many pluses which make it the engine of choice for many script-based apps, including Joomla and Magento, which have switched over to InnoDB for good. For instance, importing large data volumes will be much faster with InnoDB, as it locks only one row to execute a specific operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is tackled. In simpler words, appending new or updating existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be aborted and the operation will be rolled back in case a given problem occurs during the process, which means that the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.
InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting
Every PHP script-powered software application that requires InnoDB will run flawlessly on our advanced cloud web hosting platform and the MySQL database engine is offered with all our cloud web hosting plans. Every time you create a database manually or our app installer tool creates one automatically and an app installation process is started, the engine that the database in question will use will be selected in accordance with the app’s specifications without the need to configure any setting in your shared hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically for any app that requires this specific engine and you’ll be able to get the most out of its full potential. We’ll perform regular content backups, so in case you unintentionally remove a database that you need or you overwrite certain parts of it, we will be able to restore your content the way it was only several hours ago.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you set up a new MySQL database from the Control Panel provided with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you begin installing a PHP script-driven app either manually or using our one-click app installer, the MySQL database storage engine will be set automatically on the basis of the prerequisites of the particular application. As InnoDB is present on the cloud website hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated account will be created, it will be set as the default engine for any application that requires it without any manual action needed on your end at any moment. To avoid any risk of losing info if you update an application or if you delete a database accidentally, we’ll make a backup of all your databases every day, so if anything goes wrong, we can restore your data.
InnoDB in VPS Hosting
If you pick a virtual private server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, the InnoDB database engine will be an essential part of the standard software pack that will be 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 install and run any open-source script-driven application that requires InnoDB as soon as your VPS is set up, which takes no more than 1 hour after the order procedure itself. A couple of engines are offered, so every time you set up a MySQL database via the Hepsia Control Panel, a specific engine will be selected once the app installation commences and our system will automatically recognize which engine is required by the application in question. If you need to use MyISAM, for instance, you won’t have to do anything different from installing the desired application, whether manually or using our application installer tool.
InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting
All dedicated hosting services ordered with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel include a software package that’s pre-installed and among everything else, you will get the InnoDB database storage engine, so you will not need to add it manually in case you want to run open-source PHP scripts that need it. All it takes to activate such a script is to set up a new MySQL database and to initiate the installation – as soon as the script installation wizard gets access to the database and begins inserting data into it, InnoDB will be set as the default engine for this database provided that it is the one needed by the script. You’ll also be able to use scripts that require the other popular MySQL engine, MyISAM, so you won’t need to edit any settings on the dedicated server. This will permit you to run a variety of scripts on one single machine and to use the latter to its maximum capacity.
