InnoDB is a database storage engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by widely used script-driven web applications like Joomla v3 and Magento. It’s ideal for scalable applications, since it excels in processing enormous data volumes. Instead of locking the whole database table to enter new information into a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can handle a lot more operations for the same length of time. Besides, InnoDB offers an improved database failure recovery and supports database transactions and foreign keys – a set of rules that specify how data inserts and modifications should be handled. If a specific operation hasn’t been entirely completed for some reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the database content will be kept intact and will not be partially merged with newly imported content.
InnoDB in Shared Hosting
Every PHP script-powered software application that needs InnoDB will run impeccably on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and the MySQL storage engine comes with all our shared hosting packages. Whenever you create a database manually or our app installer tool creates one automatically and an app installation process is initiated, the engine that the database in question will make use of will be selected on the basis of the app’s requirements without the need to change any setting in your shared hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically for any app that requires this specific engine and you will be able to get the most out of its full capacity. We will maintain regular backups of your content, so if you unintentionally delete a MySQL database that you need or you overwrite a certain part of it, we will be able to restore your database the way it was only several hours earlier.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you create a brand-new MySQL database through the Control Panel coming with all our semi-dedicated server accounts and you begin installing an open-source script-powered web application either manually or using our 1-click app installer, the storage engine for the MySQL database will be picked automatically depending on the prerequisites of the specific app. As InnoDB is present on the cloud web hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated hosting account will be created, it will be set as the default engine for each app that requires it without any manual intervention needed on your end at any point. To avoid any chance of losing data if you update an application or if you remove a database unintentionally, we’ll generate backups of all your databases each day, so if anything goes wrong, we can restore your content.
InnoDB in VPS
When you acquire a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to take advantage of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel to manage your content. A Hepsia-managed VPS will permit you to run any PHP script-based web application which requires InnoDB, as this particular MySQL database storage engine is included in the standard software bundle that will be installed on the server during its setup. When you create a brand new MySQL database via the hosting Control Panel, you’ll just need to begin installing an application – manually or using our app installer. InnoDB will be set as the default engine given that the application in question requires it, so you won’t need to do anything else in your VPS account. Similarly, if a certain app needs MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this particular MySQL database.
InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting
When you obtain a new dedicated server, you’ll be able to pick any of the 3 Control Panels that we offer – Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel. Any dedicated server ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-activated, so you will not need to enable this database storage engine manually so as to be able to manage open-source script-driven software apps that need it. InnoDB is used for scalable apps and since a dedicated server will give you all the system resources that you need to manage very large sites, it’s rather possible that you’ll use InnoDB. You will be able to make use of other engines too, so if a specific app requires MyISAM instead of InnoDB, you will not come across any problem while running it. The engine that will be used will be automatically detected the moment the app installation process commences, so you won’t need to fine-tune any setting manually at any moment.
