InnoDB is a MySQL database storage engine, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years, because it offers a significantly better overall performance and an improved crash recovery compared to the default engine that’s used by MySQL – MyISAM. InnoDB is used by many programmers that build highly scalable software applications, as it works much more effectively with immense amounts of data, while it keeps the server load at a minimum. Additionally, it uses row-level locking in case any info should be edited, whereas lots of other engines lock the entire database table and hence require much more time to execute multiple successive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB observes a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – in case the entire data modification process cannot be completed successfully for some reason, the operation is rolled back to avoid confusion or losing data. Magento and the newest Joomla™ editions are two examples of popular script-powered software platforms which have switched over to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting
You can install any script-based app that needs InnoDB if you have a cloud web hosting
with us, as the database storage engine is present on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform as standard. During the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will continue flawlessly in case this engine is needed. You can install apps that use the MyISAM engine without any impediments as well and, again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you won’t have to update any setting manually at any time. In addition, we’ll also make regular backups of all the databases that you have in the shared hosting account, so in case you delete or overwrite anything, we can swiftly get it back to the way it was on any of the past 7 days.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you create a brand-new MySQL database from the Control Panel included with each of our semi-dedicated server
accounts and you begin installing a script-powered software application either manually or using our one-click application installer, the storage engine for the database will be picked automatically depending on the prerequisites of the app in question. Since InnoDB is available on the cloud hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated server account will be created, it will be set as the default engine for each application that needs it without any manual action required on your end at any time. To prevent any chance of losing information if you update an application or if you delete a database by mistake, we will carry out a backup of all your databases every day, so if anything happens, we can rescue your data.
InnoDB in VPS Hosting
In case our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is selected during the signup process for your new Linux virtual private servers
, InnoDB will be activated on the VPS server together with other necessary pieces of software, so you won’t need to do anything if you choose to install PHP script-based software applications that need this MySQL database engine. The default MySQL engine – MyISAM, will be installed too. You can set up a brand new MySQL database and begin the app installation manually or using our single-click installer. The system will automatically recognize the engine that the application in question requires and will set it for the specific database, so the installation process will continue impeccably and the application can insert its data into that database. Therefore, you can run applications with various prerequisites concerning the MySQL engine without having to make any modifications on your VPS server.
InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you get a new dedicated server
, you will be able to choose one of the three Control Panels offered by our company – DirectAdmin, Hepsia and cPanel. Each server ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-activated, so you won’t need to activate this database storage engine manually so as to be able to manage script-driven apps that require it. InnoDB is used for scalable applications and since a dedicated server will supply you with all the resources that you need in order to manage large-size websites, it’s rather possible that you will use InnoDB. You will be able to use other engines as well, so if a given application needs MyISAM instead of InnoDB, you will not experience any impediment while running it. The engine that will be used will be detected automatically once the app installation commences, so you will not have to edit any setting manually at any time.
