InnoDB is a very popular database engine for the MySQL DBMS. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got a number of pluses which make it the preferred engine for plenty of script-driven software applications, among them Joomla and Magento, which have moved to InnoDB for good. For instance, importing large amounts of data will be much faster with InnoDB, since it locks only a single database row to accomplish an operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the info is tackled. To put it simply, importing new or updating existing data will either be fully completed, or will be aborted and the operation will be rolled back in case a given issue appears during the process, which is why the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.
InnoDB in Website Hosting
Any PHP script-powered software app that needs InnoDB will function flawlessly on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform and the MySQL storage engine is offered with all our website hosting packages. Every time you create a MySQL database manually or our app installer tool creates one automatically and an app installation process is started, the engine that the database will use will be selected based on the app’s specifications without having to modify any setting in your account. InnoDB will be selected automatically for any application that requires this specific engine and you will be able to get the most out of its full potential. We will maintain daily backups of your content, so if you accidentally remove a database that is important to you or you overwrite a certain part of it, we’ll be able to restore your data the way it was only several hours ago.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
InnoDB is available with each of our semi-dedicated hosting by default, so as soon as you get a new semi-dedicated account, you can go on and install any open-source script-driven app that requires the database engine. A few engines are pre-installed on our cloud platform, so when you set up a new MySQL database and begin installing an application manually, or decide to use the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated application installer, the engine for the database will be picked on the basis of the prerequisites of the specific application. This will permit you to activate and run InnoDB-specific apps without having any complication and without having to update any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To be on the safe side, we’ll always keep a one-week-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you remove or alter any content by accident, we can easily retrieve it.
InnoDB in VPS
All Linux VPS services that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-activated, so you will be able to take advantage of any open-source script-based web app that needs this particular MySQL storage engine without needing to install anything manually. You can pick Hepsia on the VPS order form and your brand new server will be up and running within 1 hour, so you can sign in and begin setting up your websites straight away. When you set up a new database and begin the app activation process, our system will select the engine for this database automatically. Thus, you can use various applications simultaneously without having to edit anything on the Virtual Private Server. You can set up a WordPress-based online journal that makes use of MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento e-store that makes use of InnoDB, for instance.
InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting
When you purchase a new dedicated server, you will be able to select any of the three hosting Control Panels offered by our company – cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. Any dedicated server ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-activated, so you will not have to activate this MySQL storage engine manually so as to be able to use PHP script-powered software apps that require it. InnoDB is used by scalable applications and since a dedicated server will provide you with all the resources that you require to run large-scale websites, it’s very possible that you will resort to InnoDB. You will be able to use other engines as well, so if a certain application requires MyISAM instead of InnoDB, you won’t run into any complication while managing it. The engine that will be used will be automatically detected as soon as the app installation process commences, so you won’t need to fine-tune any settings manually whatsoever.
