InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL databases, which is used by widespread script-based software applications like Magento and Joomla 3.x. It’s ideal for scalable apps, because it works incredibly well when processing immense data volumes. Instead of locking the whole database table to add new information to a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can complete much more tasks for the same length of time. Plus, InnoDB offers an improved database failure recovery and supports database transactions and foreign keys – rules that specify how data inserts and updates should be handled. In case a specific operation has not been fully completed for some reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the information in the database will be preserved intact and will not be partially merged with newly appended content.
InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting
Every script-based software application that requires InnoDB will run impeccably on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and the database engine comes with all our cloud website hosting packages. Every time you create a database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation process is initiated, the engine that the database will make use of will be selected on the basis of the app’s prerequisites without having to configure any setting in your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be chosen automatically for any application that requires this specific engine and you’ll be able to get the most out of its full potential. We’ll perform regular content backups, so in case you unintentionally delete a MySQL database that you need or you overwrite some part of it, we’ll be able to restore the database the way it was just several hours earlier.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can run a script-driven software app that needs InnoDB with any of our semi-dedicated server packages, since all the accounts are created on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform where the MySQL database storage engine is installed. A new database can be created in two ways – manually through the Database Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, or automatically – in case you make use of our 1-click app installer tool. In either case, the required engine will be picked automatically as soon as the activation of the application begins, so you will not have to configure anything manually, no matter if the app requires InnoDB or the more widely used MyISAM. On top of that, we’ll always be able to retrieve any of your databases in case you erase one by accident, as we carry out a couple of database backups every day, each of which is kept for 1 week.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
If you order a VPS server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, the InnoDB database storage engine will be an indivisible part of the default software pack that will be pre-installed on your VPS server before we give it to you. You will not need to set up anything manually and you’ll be able to enable and use any PHP script-driven application that requires InnoDB once your Virtual Private Server is set up, which takes no more than one hour after the order submission process itself. A few engines are offered, so every time you set up a database using the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a particular engine will be activated once the app activation process begins and our system will detect the engine that is required by the application in question. In case you have to use MyISAM, for example, you will not have to do anything different than installing the chosen app, whether manually or using our app installer tool.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is one of the options which you can select on the order page when you buy a dedicated server from us. As this is the most powerful kind of web hosting, it is quite likely that you will manage highly popular websites that will attract many individuals, and since InnoDB is among the best options for such sites, we will activate it together with all the other software applications that are offered with a Hepsia-managed server. If you create a brand new database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any active MySQL storage engine till you begin installing an open-source PHP script, whether manually through your browser or using the automatic scripts installer tool that is integrated into the hosting Control Panel. The required engine will be detected automatically and will be set for the database in question, so you can activate scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without running into any obstacle.
