InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years, because it offers a significantly better overall performance and a faster database failure recovery compared with the default engine that’s used by the MySQL database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is endorsed by a lot of devs that create highly scalable apps, since it works more efficiently with immense amounts of data, while it keeps the server load at a minimum. Also, it locks only one database row if anything should be updated, whereas many other engines lock the entire database table and therefore need more time to accomplish multiple consecutive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB complies with a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – in case the entire data modification cannot be completed successfully for whatever reason, the action is rolled back to prevent confusion or the loss of data. Magento and the newest editions of Joomla are two instances of famous PHP script-based software apps that have shifted over to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Web Hosting
Every PHP-driven web app that needs InnoDB will function flawlessly on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform and the MySQL storage engine comes with all our web hosting packages. Each time you create a database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation is started, the engine that the database in question will make use of will be selected on the basis of the app’s requirements without having to edit any setting in your hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically for any app that requires this particular engine and you will be able to take advantage of its full capacity. We’ll make daily content backups, so in case you unintentionally delete a MySQL database that you need or you overwrite specific parts of it, we’ll be able to restore everything the way it was just several hours ago.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting include InnoDB and you’ll be able to make use of all the options offered by this database engine with any open-source script-powered application that requires it. InnoDB is one of the engines that we have on our cloud website hosting platform, so the one that will be selected depends on the requirements of the particular app. You won’t need to do anything manually in order to enable InnoDB, because it will be set as the default engine when you install an app – whether manually or using our single-click app installer. To be on the safe side, we’ll keep regular database backups, so if something goes wrong after some update or if you delete some content by accident, we will be able to get your database back to the way it was on any of the past seven days.
InnoDB in VPS
If you select a virtual private server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB database engine will be an integral part of the default software package that will be pre-installed on your server before we hand it over to you. You won’t have to set up anything manually and you will be able to install and run any script-driven web app that requires InnoDB when your VPS server is ready, which takes no more than sixty minutes after the order submission process itself. A number of engines are offered, so every time you set up a MySQL database via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a particular engine will be picked once the app installation starts and our system will automatically recognize which engine is required by the application in question. In case you need to use MyISAM, for example, you will not need to do anything different from installing the preferred application, whether manually or using our application installer tool.
InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting
If you acquire a new dedicated server, you will be able to pick any of the 3 Control Panels that we are offering – Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel. Each server ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-activated, so you won’t need to enable this MySQL storage engine manually so as to be able to manage PHP-based software apps that require it. InnoDB is used for scalable applications and since a dedicated server will provide you with all the system resources that you need to manage very large Internet sites, it’s very likely that you’ll resort to InnoDB. You’ll be able to use other engines too, so in case a specific application needs MyISAM rather than InnoDB, you will not need to deal with any impediment while running it. The engine that will be used will be recognized automatically as soon as the app installation begins, so you will not have to configure any setting manually at any point.
