InnoDB is a popular database engine for the MySQL database management system. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got numerous pluses which make it the engine of choice for lots of PHP script-driven web applications, including Joomla and Magento, which have switched over to InnoDB for good. For instance, importing huge amounts of data will be much faster with InnoDB, because it locks only one row to accomplish a specific task, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is treated. Put simply, adding new or modifying existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be aborted and the procedure will be rolled back if some issue shows up during the process, so the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
While InnoDB is either a paid upgrade or it is not available at all with many other hosting companies, it’s an integral part of the default set of services that we offer with our cloud hosting plans. In case you would like to make use of a PHP script-driven application that needs InnoDB in particular, in order to be installed and to operate correctly, you will not need to deal with any problems since the MySQL database engine is available on our custom cloud website hosting platform. No matter if you set up a brand new MySQL database and activate an app manually or make use of our one-click app installer software tool, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the given application needs it instead of MyISAM. In addition to the excellent database crash recovery that InnoDB is offering, we also store daily database backups, so that we can swiftly recover any database in your shared hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
InnoDB is included with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting by default, so the moment you order a new account, you can go ahead and install any PHP script-powered software app that requires this database storage engine. A number of engines are pre-installed on our cloud platform, so when you create a new database and begin installing an app manually, or opt to make use of the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated app installer tool, the engine for the database will be chosen depending on the requirements of the specific application. This will allow you to install and run InnoDB-specific applications without the need to deal with any obstacle and without the need to modify any settings in your account. To avoid any risk, we will always have a 1-week-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you remove or change any content unintentionally, we can swiftly retrieve it.
InnoDB in VPS Hosting
When you order a virtual private server from us, you will be able to take full advantage of our custom Hepsia Control Panel to manage your web content. A Hepsia-managed Virtual Private Server will permit you to manage any PHP-powered software app that needs InnoDB, as the MySQL storage engine is part of the default software bundle that will be pre-installed on the Virtual Private Server during its configuration. When you create a brand-new MySQL database via the hosting Control Panel, you will simply have to start installing an app – manually or using our app installer. InnoDB will be set as the default engine on the condition that the app in question needs it, so you won’t need to do anything else in your VPS account. Correspondingly, if a certain application needs MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this particular MySQL database.
InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting
InnoDB comes by default with all Linux dedicated web hosting ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is included in the standard software bundle that will be installed on all Hepsia-equipped servers, so once your machine is up and running, you will be able to sign in and to install any PHP script-driven software application that requires this MySQL storage engine. If you create a new database via the Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine until you begin installing an app. Once the app activation wizard begins entering data into the newly created database, the engine will be set automatically based on the prerequisites of the specific app, so you can run both MyISAM and InnoDB without having to select either one of them specifically at any time. Therefore, you can use an immense variety of apps for your Internet sites.
