InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL databases, which is used by famous open-source script-based web applications such as Joomla 3.x and Magento. It’s ideal for scalable applications, as it performs remarkably well when managing large 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 row, so it can perform much more tasks for the same length of time. Also, InnoDB offers a faster database crash recovery and supports database transactions and foreign key constraints – a set of rules that determine how data imports and updates should be handled. If a particular task has not been fully completed for whatever reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the content in the database will be retained undamaged and won’t be partially merged with newly appended content.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
InnoDB is offered with all our Linux cloud hosting packages by default, not as a paid upgrade or upon request, so you will be able to install and manage any open-source script-based software app which needs the MySQL database engine without having to deal with any difficulty once you activate your account. InnoDB will be pre-selected as the default engine for a given database during the app installation process, irrespective of whether you use our one-click installation tool or create the MySQL database and install the app manually, provided that the application requires InnoDB instead of the more popular MyISAM engine. We’ll carry out daily backups of all your databases, so you can be sure that you’ll never lose any content if you delete a database by accident or you overwrite some key info – you will simply have to contact us and we’ll restore your database the way it was.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated packages come with InnoDB and you’ll be able to make use of all the features of this MySQL database engine with any PHP-powered web application that needs it. It is one of the engines that are available on our cloud website hosting platform, so the one that will be used depends on the requirements of the respective app. You will not have to do anything manually in order to activate InnoDB, since it will be set as the default engine when you install an application – whether manually or using our 1-click app installer tool. To be on the safe side, we’ll generate daily database backups, so if anything goes wrong after some update or if you remove some content accidentally, we’ll be able to restore your database the way it was on any of the past 7 days.
InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting
If you choose a virtual private server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB database engine will be an essential part of the standard software pack that will be installed on your VPS server before we hand it over to you. You won’t have to activate anything manually and you will be able to enable and run any PHP script-powered software app that needs InnoDB when your Virtual Private Server is ready, which takes no more than 1 hour after the order procedure itself. A number of engines are offered, so anytime you create a MySQL database via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a specific engine will be activated once the app activation begins and our system will automatically recognize which engine is required by the app in question. If you have to use MyISAM, for example, you won’t have to do anything different than installing the app of your preference, whether manually or using our app installer.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the options which you can select on the order page when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. Since this is the most powerful type of website hosting, it’s pretty likely that you will manage popular websites that will draw a lot of visitors, and since InnoDB is one of the very best choices for such sites, we will activate it together with all the other software apps that come with a Hepsia-equipped server. If you set up a brand new database in your account, there won’t be any activated MySQL database engine till you start installing an open-source script, whether manually via your browser or using the automatic script installation tool that is available in the hosting Control Panel. The necessary engine will be recognized automatically and will be set for the database in question, so you can install scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without having any obstacle.
