InnoDB is a MySQL database storage engine, which has been gaining popularity lately, because it offers a better overall performance and an improved database crash recovery compared with the default engine that’s used by the MySQL relational database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is endorsed by lots of programmers that write highly scalable apps, due to the fact that it works much more efficiently with large amounts of data, while it keeps the server processing load low. Additionally, it locks only one database row if anything should be modified, while lots of other engines lock the entire database table and hence require more time to complete several successive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB obeys a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – if the entire data modification procedure cannot be completed successfully for some reason, the operation is rolled back to prevent confusion or the loss of data. Magento and the newest versions of Joomla are two examples of popular PHP script-powered applications which have switched to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
Every script-based web app that requires InnoDB will function flawlessly on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform and the database storage engine is available with all our cloud hosting packages. Whenever you create a database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation is initiated, the engine that the database in question will make use of will be selected in accordance with the app’s prerequisites without the need to configure any setting in your web hosting account. InnoDB will be chosen automatically for any application that requires this particular engine and you’ll be able to take advantage of its full capacity. We will keep regular backups of your content, so if you unintentionally delete a MySQL database that you need or you overwrite specific parts of it, we’ll be able to restore your content the way it was just a few hours earlier.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
InnoDB is available with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting service by default, so once you buy a new semi-dedicated account, you can move on and install any PHP-driven application that requires the database storage engine. A few engines are installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so when you set up a brand-new database and begin installing an app manually, or opt to take advantage of the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated application installer, the engine for the database will be chosen in accordance with the prerequisites of the application in question. This will allow you to activate and run InnoDB-specific applications without running into any impediment and without configuring any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To avoid any risk, we will always keep a one-week-old backup of all your databases, so if you remove or alter any content by accident, we can easily rescue it.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
In case our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is chosen during the registration process for your new VPS servers , InnoDB will be activated on the server along with other needed software, so you won’t need to do anything if you choose to use open-source script-powered applications that require this MySQL database storage engine. MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, will be installed as well. You can set up a brand new MySQL database and begin the app installation manually or using our single-click installer tool. The system will recognize the engine that the application in question requires and will set it for the specific database, so the installation process will proceed impeccably and the application can insert its content into that database. In this way, you can activate applications with different prerequisites with regard to the MySQL engine without having to make any changes on your server.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
If you purchase a new dedicated server, you will be able to choose one of the 3 Control Panels that we offer – Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel. Any server ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-activated, so you will not need to activate this database engine manually to be able to manage script-based web apps that require it. InnoDB is used for scalable apps and since a dedicated server will give you all the resources that you need in order to run large-size sites, it is very possible that you will resort to InnoDB. You will be able to make use of other engines as well, so if a particular application needs MyISAM rather than InnoDB, you won’t have any obstacle while managing it. The engine that will be used will be recognized automatically as soon as the app installation procedure commences, so you won’t need to update any setting manually at any point.
