InnoDB is a MySQL database storage engine, which has been gaining popularity lately, as it offers a significantly better overall performance and an improved database failure recovery compared with the default engine that’s used by the MySQL DBMS – MyISAM. InnoDB is endorsed by many devs that run scalable applications, due to the fact that it works much better with immense volumes of data, while it keeps the server load low. Additionally, it uses row-level locking if anything should be modified, while lots of other engines lock the entire database table and therefore require more time to handle several successive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB adheres to a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – if the entire data modification cannot be completed successfully for any reason, the operation is rolled back to avoid scrambling or losing data. Magento and the newest Joomla releases are two examples of famous script-powered web apps that have shifted over to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Shared Website Hosting
While InnoDB is either a paid upgrade or it is not available at all with many other web hosting companies, it is part of the standard set of features that we’re offering with our shared website hosting packages. In case you’d like to make use of an open-source script-based application that needs InnoDB specifically, in order to be activated and to operate correctly, you will not need to deal with any difficulties because the MySQL database engine is available on our in-house built cloud web hosting platform. No matter if you set up a brand-new database and install an application manually or make use of our 1-click app installer tool, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the given application requires it rather than MyISAM. Besides the outstanding database failure recovery offered by InnoDB, we also perform regular database backups, so that we can swiftly restore any database in your shared web hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you set up a new MySQL database through the hosting Control Panel coming with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you begin installing a script-based web application either manually or using our single-click app installer tool, the storage engine for the MySQL database will be picked automatically based on the particular app’s requirements. Since InnoDB is present on the cloud website hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated server account will be set up, 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 risk of losing information if you update an application or if you erase a database accidentally, we will carry out backups of all your MySQL databases each day, so if anything goes wrong, we can recover your data.
InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting
If you get a virtual private server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, the InnoDB database storage engine will be part of the standard software bundle that will be pre-installed on your Virtual Private Server before we hand it over to you. You will not have to configure anything manually and you will be able to install and manage any open-source script-powered web app that requires InnoDB once your VPS is up and running, which takes no more than 1 hour after the order submission itself. A couple of engines are available, so anytime you set up a MySQL database via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a particular engine will be activated once the app installation process starts and our system will recognize the engine that is required by the app in question. In case you need to use MyISAM, for instance, you will not need to do anything different than installing the chosen application, whether manually or using our application installer.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is among the options that you can choose on the server order page when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. As this is the most powerful type of hosting, it’s very likely that you’ll manage popular websites that will draw a lot of people, and since InnoDB is one of the best options for such websites, we will enable it along with all the other software applications that come with a Hepsia-managed server. When you create a new database in your account, there won’t be any activated MySQL storage engine till you begin installing an open-source script, whether manually via your browser or using the automatic scripts installer tool that is available in the Control Panel. The necessary engine will be automatically detected and will be assigned to that database, so you can run scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without running into any predicament.
