InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining in popularity lately, because it offers a significantly better overall performance and a faster database failure recovery compared to the default engine that is used by the MySQL database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is endorsed by a lot of developers that write scalable apps, as it works more efficiently with large data volumes, while it keeps the server load at a minimum. In addition, it it locks only one row in the database in case anything should be edited, while lots of other engines lock the entire table and hence need more time to process multiple consecutive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB observes a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – if the entire data modification process cannot be completed successfully for whatever reason, the action is rolled back to prevent confusion or the loss of data. Magento and the newest versions of Joomla are two instances of famous open-source script-powered software apps which have switched over to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Hosting
InnoDB is available with all our hosting by default, not as a paid upgrade or upon request, so you can activate and run any PHP-powered web application that needs the InnoDB storage engine without the need to deal with any complication as soon as you order your shared account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a given database during the app installation, regardless of whether you take advantage of our 1-click installation tool or create the MySQL database and install the application manually, provided that the app requires it instead of the more popular MyISAM engine. We’ll maintain daily MySQL database backups, so you can rest assured that you’ll never lose any data if you erase a database unintentionally or you overwrite some important information – you will simply need to inform us and we’ll restore your database the way it was.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated servers come with InnoDB and you’ll be able to make the most of all the features offered by this database engine with any PHP script-driven app that requires it. It’s one of the engines that are available on our cloud web hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the requirements of the particular application. You will not have to do anything manually in order to activate InnoDB, as it will be set as the default engine when you install an application – whether manually or using our one-click application installer. To be on the safe side, we will keep regular backups of all your databases, so if something goes wrong after an update or if you remove some data by mistake, we will be able to restore the database the way it was on any of the previous seven days.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
When you get a VPS server from us, you will be able to take full advantage of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel to manage your content. A Hepsia-managed VPS will permit you to install any PHP script-driven software app which requires InnoDB, as the storage engine is part of the default software bundle that will be pre-installed on the server during its configuration. When you set up a new database through the Control Panel, you will just have to begin installing an app – manually or using our application installer tool. InnoDB will be set as the default engine given that the application in question requires it, so you will not need to do anything else in your VPS account. In the same manner, if a certain app requires MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this concrete MySQL database.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is among the options which you can select on the order form when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. Since this is the most powerful kind of hosting, it is pretty likely that you’ll manage popular websites that will attract lots of visitors, and since InnoDB is among the very best choices for such sites, we will install it along with all the other software apps that are offered with a Hepsia-equipped dedicated server. When you create a brand new MySQL database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any activated database storage engine till you begin installing a PHP script, whether manually via your Internet browser or using the automatic script installer tool that is integrated into the hosting Control Panel. The necessary engine will be automatically detected and will be assigned to that database, so you can use scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without needing to cope with any impediment.
