InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for the MySQL DBMS. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got plenty of advantages that make it the preferred engine for lots of open-source script-powered software apps, among them Joomla and Magento, which have moved to InnoDB permanently. For instance, adding large volumes of data will be much faster with InnoDB, as it locks only one row to complete a specific operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is tackled. Put simply, appending new or updating existing data will either be fully completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back if any issue shows up in the meantime, hence the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
Any PHP script-based application that requires InnoDB will function impeccably on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform and the storage engine is offered with all our cloud hosting plans. Whenever you create a database manually or our app installer tool creates one automatically and an app installation process is initiated, the engine that the database will make use of will be selected in accordance with the app’s specifications without the need to update any setting in your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be chosen automatically for any application that requires this specific engine and you will be able to get the most out of its full capacity. We will maintain regular backups of your content, so in case you unintentionally remove a MySQL database that is important to you or you overwrite some part of it, we’ll be able to restore your content the way it was just a couple of hours ago.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you set up a new MySQL database through the Control Panel offered with each of our semi-dedicated server plans and you begin installing an open-source script-based software application either manually or using our single-click app installer tool, the storage engine for the MySQL database will be set automatically on the basis of the specific app’s prerequisites. Since InnoDB is present on the cloud web hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated account will be created, it will be set as the default engine for each app that needs it without any manual intervention needed on your end at any moment. To prevent any chance of losing data if you update an application or if you erase a database by accident, we’ll carry out a backup of all your MySQL databases every day, so if something goes wrong, we can restore your content.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
If you get a VPS server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB storage engine will be an indivisible part of the software bundle that will be pre-installed on your VPS server before we give it to you. You will not need to configure anything manually and you’ll be able to install and manage any open-source script-driven web application that needs InnoDB once your VPS server is ready, which takes no more than one hour after the order procedure itself. A few engines are offered, so every time you set up a MySQL database via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a specific engine will be activated when the app activation process begins and our system will automatically recognize the engine that is required by the application in question. If you need to use MyISAM, for example, you will not have to do anything different from installing the preferred application, whether manually or using our app installer.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is one of the features that you can pick on the server order page when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. As this is the most powerful kind of website hosting, it is pretty likely that you will manage very popular Internet sites that will draw plenty of visitors, and since InnoDB is among the best choices for such sites, we’ll enable it together with all the other software apps that are available with a Hepsia-equipped dedicated server. If you create a new MySQL database in your account, there won’t be any active MySQL database engine until you begin installing a script, whether manually through your web browser or using the automatic scripts installer that is available in the hosting Control Panel. The necessary engine will be detected and will be assigned to that database, so you can install scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that require MyISAM, the default MySQL engine, without coming across any impediment.
