InnoDB is a database engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by popular PHP-based web applications like Joomla 3 and Magento. It is ideal for scalable applications, since it performs remarkably well when managing huge data volumes. Instead of locking the entire database table to append new information to a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can carry out much more tasks for the same period of time. Additionally, InnoDB offers a better crash recovery and supports database transactions and foreign key constraints – a set of rules that prescribe how data inserts and updates should be handled. In case a certain task hasn’t been entirely completed for some reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the information in the database will be kept safe and sound and won’t be partially merged with newly entered content.
InnoDB in Shared Web Hosting
Every open-source script-based software application that requires InnoDB will run impeccably on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform and the MySQL storage engine is available with all our shared web hosting plans. Each time you create a database manually or our app installer tool creates one automatically and an app installation is started, the engine that the database in question will make use of will be selected in accordance with the app’s requirements without the need to update any setting in your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be picked automatically for any application that requires this specific engine and you will be able to take advantage of its full capacity. We’ll generate daily backups of your content, so if you accidentally remove a MySQL database that is important to you or you overwrite certain parts of it, we will be able to restore everything the way it was just a couple of hours ago.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated servers come with InnoDB and you will be able to use all the features offered by this MySQL database storage engine with any script-based application that requires it. InnoDB is one of the engines that we have on our cloud hosting platform, so the one that will be used depends on the given app’s requirements. You will not need to do anything manually to activate InnoDB, as it will be set as the default engine when you install an application – whether manually or using our 1-click app installer. To avoid any risk, we’ll store daily database backups, so if anything goes wrong after an update or if you erase some data by accident, we will be able to restore your database the way it was on any of the previous seven days.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
If you order a VPS server from us, you will be able to make use of our custom Hepsia Control Panel to manage your web content. A Hepsia-managed Virtual Private Server will permit you to install any PHP-driven web app which needs InnoDB, as this particular database storage engine is part of the software package that will be pre-installed on the VPS server during its setup. When you set up a new database through the hosting Control Panel, you’ll simply have to start installing an app – manually or using our app installer. InnoDB will be set as the default engine in case the application in question requires it, so you will not have to do anything else in your VPS account. Identically, if a given app requires MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this particular database.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the features which you can choose on the server order page when you buy a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful kind of web hosting, it is rather likely that you’ll manage very popular websites that will attract plenty of visitors, and since InnoDB is among the very best choices for such Internet sites, we’ll activate it together with all the other software apps that are offered with a Hepsia-equipped server. When you create a brand new MySQL database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any activated database engine until you begin installing an open-source script, whether manually via your web browser or using the automatic scripts installation tool that is integrated into the hosting Control Panel. The necessary engine will be automatically detected and will be set for the database in question, so you can make use of scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without any complications.
