InnoDB is a MySQL database storage engine, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years, because it offers a much better overall performance and a faster crash recovery in comparison with the default engine that’s used by the MySQL database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is preferred by lots of web developers that run highly scalable web applications, because it works much more effectively with large data volumes, while it keeps the server load at a minimum. Additionally, it locks only a single database row if any information should be edited, while many other engines lock the entire table and therefore require much more time to perform multiple successive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB complies with the "all-or-nothing" rule – in case the entire data modification procedure cannot be completed successfully for whatever reason, the action is rolled back to prevent scrambling or data loss. Magento and the latest versions of Joomla are two examples of widely used script-powered web applications that have switched over to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Website Hosting
You’ll be able to activate any open-source script-powered application that needs InnoDB if you have a Linux website hosting service with us, as the MySQL database engine is available on our avant-garde cloud platform by default. Throughout the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will proceed flawlessly in case this engine is required. You can install applications that require the MyISAM engine without encountering any obstacle as well and, again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you will not have to modify anything manually at any moment. In addition, we’ll also make regular backups of all the MySQL databases that you have in the account, so in case you erase or overwrite something, we can quickly restore it the way it was on any of the previous seven days.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can install a script-driven software app that requires InnoDB with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, as all the accounts are set up on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform where the database engine is installed. A new database can be set up in two separate ways – manually from the Database Manager section of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, or automatically – in case you take advantage of our single-click app installer tool. In either case, the needed engine will be picked automatically once the installation of the app begins, so you will not have to edit anything manually, regardless of whether the application needs InnoDB or the more widely used MyISAM. In addition, we will always be able to recover any of your databases in case you unintentionally delete one, as we generate several MySQL database backups every day, each of which is kept for 7 days.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
All Linux VPS hosting service that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB already installed, so you’ll be able to make use of any open-source script-based web app that requires this particular storage engine without setting up anything manually. You can select Hepsia on the VPS order page and your brand-new server will be ready within the hour, so you can sign in and begin building your web sites straight away. When you set up a new database and start the app installation process, our system will choose the engine for this MySQL database automatically. In this way, you can install various applications simultaneously without having to modify anything on the VPS server. You can have a WordPress personal weblog that makes use of the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-driven online shopping portal that makes use of the InnoDB engine, for example.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the options which you can select on the order page when you buy a dedicated server from us. As this is the most powerful type of hosting, it’s pretty likely that you will run highly popular websites that will draw lots of individuals, and since InnoDB is one of the very best options for such Internet sites, we will activate it together with all the other software apps that are offered with a Hepsia-managed dedicated server. When you create a brand-new database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any active MySQL database storage engine until you start installing an open-source script, whether manually through your Internet browser or using the automatic script installer that is included in the Control Panel. The needed engine will be automatically detected and will be assigned to the database in question, so you can run scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without the need to cope with any problem.
