InnoDB is a popular storage engine for the MySQL database management system. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has numerous advantages which make it the engine of choice for a lot of PHP-powered software apps, such as Joomla and Magento, which have shifted over to InnoDB permanently. For example, adding immense volumes of data will be much faster with InnoDB, as it locks only a single database row to execute a given task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is handled. Simply put, adding new or updating existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be aborted and the procedure will be rolled back if a certain problem appears in the meantime, which means that the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
While InnoDB is either not offered or it is a paid upgrade with many other hosting companies, it is an essential part of the default set of features offered with our cloud hosting packages. If you wish to make use of a PHP script-based software app that requires InnoDB specifically, in order to be activated and to perform correctly, you will not have any impediments since the InnoDB storage engine is available on our in-house built cloud web hosting platform. Irrespective of whether you create a brand-new MySQL database and install an application manually or make use of our single-click app installer instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our system as the default engine if the particular app needs InnoDB rather than MyISAM. Besides the remarkable database crash recovery offered by InnoDB, we also maintain regular database backups, so we can swiftly recover any MySQL database in your shared web hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
InnoDB comes with each of our semi-dedicated packages by default, so once you buy a new semi-dedicated account, you can go ahead and install any script-powered software application that requires this particular storage engine. A few engines are pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so when you create a new MySQL database and begin installing an application manually, or opt to make use of the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated app installer tool, the engine for the database will be set depending on the prerequisites of the app in question. This will allow you to install and run InnoDB-specific applications without needing to cope with any difficulty and without needing to update any settings in your account. To be on the safe side, we’ll always keep a seven-day-old backup of all your databases, so if you delete or change any content by accident, we can easily retrieve it.
InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting
When you order a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to take full advantage of our custom Hepsia Control Panel to manage your web content. A Hepsia-equipped VPS will permit you to use any PHP-based application which needs InnoDB, as the MySQL database storage engine is an integral part of the standard software bundle that will be installed on your server during its setup. When you create a new MySQL database through the Control Panel, you’ll just have to start installing an application – manually or using our application installer tool. InnoDB will be set as the default engine given that the app in question requires it, so you won’t need to do anything else in your VPS account. Similarly, if a given application requires MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this concrete MySQL database.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All Linux dedicated servers hosting that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel include a software bundle that’s pre-installed and besides everything else, you’ll get the InnoDB storage engine, so you won’t need to add it manually if you would like to run scripts that require it. All it takes to use such a script is to set up a new database and to initiate the installation process – once the installer wizard gains access to the database in question and begins inserting data into it, InnoDB will be set as the default MySQL engine for this database provided that it is the one required by the particular script. You’ll also be able to run scripts that require the other popular MySQL engine, MyISAM, so you won’t need to edit any settings on the dedicated server. This will allow you to run a variety of scripts on one single server and to use it to its full capabilities.
