InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has a lot of strong sides which have made it the preferred engine for plenty of open-source script-powered software apps, including Magento and Joomla, which have switched over to InnoDB permanently. For instance, adding huge data volumes will be faster with InnoDB, as it locks only one row to execute a specific task, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the information is tackled. Put simply, appending new or updating existent data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back in case a given issue shows up in the meantime, so the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
Every script-driven application that needs InnoDB will run impeccably on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform and the MySQL database storage engine comes with all our cloud hosting packages. Every time you create a database manually or our app installer tool creates one automatically and an app installation is initiated, the engine that the database in question will use will be selected in accordance with the app’s specifications without having to change any setting in your hosting account. InnoDB will be picked automatically for any app that requires this specific engine and you’ll be able to make the most of its full capacity. We will make regular backups of your content, so if you unintentionally erase a 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 a few hours ago.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you create a new MySQL database through the hosting Control Panel provided with each of our semi-dedicated server packages and you start installing an open-source script-based application either manually or using our 1-click application installer, the database storage engine will be picked automatically on the basis of the prerequisites of the specific app. As InnoDB is available on the cloud web hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated server account will be set up, it will be set as the default engine for any app that requires it without any manual action required on your end at any point. To prevent any risk of losing info if you update an application or if you remove a database accidentally, we will perform backups of all your MySQL databases every day, so if anything goes wrong, we can retrieve your content.
InnoDB in VPS Hosting
All Linux VPS hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-installed, so you will be able to use any script-driven web app that requires this particular database engine without activating anything manually. You can choose Hepsia on the VPS order page and your brand new server will be up and running within 60 minutes, so you can sign in and start creating your sites right away. When you create a new MySQL database and begin the app installation process, our system will select the engine for this MySQL database automatically. Thus, you can install different applications simultaneously without editing anything on the Virtual Private Server. You can have a WordPress-powered personal journal that uses MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento-powered shopping portal that uses the InnoDB engine, for instance.
InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting
All Linux dedicated web hosting ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel come with a software bundle that’s pre-installed and besides everything else, you’ll get the InnoDB storage engine, so you won’t need to install it manually if you want to use scripts that need it. All it takes to install such a script is to create a new database and to begin the setup – once the script installation wizard receives access to the database and begins dumping data in it, InnoDB will be set as the default MySQL engine for this database provided that it is the one needed by the script. You’ll also be able to install scripts that need the other very popular MySQL engine, MyISAM, so you won’t need to update any settings on the dedicated server. This will enable you to run different scripts on one single physical machine and to use the latter to its fullest capacity.
