InnoDB is a MySQL database storage engine, which has been gaining in popularity lately, because it provides a much better overall performance and an improved database failure recovery compared to the default engine that’s used by MySQL – MyISAM. InnoDB is preferred by lots of devs that run highly scalable apps, as it works more efficiently with large data volumes, while it keeps the server processing load low. In addition, it it locks only one row in the database if anything should be edited, while many other engines lock the entire table and hence require much more time to complete multiple consecutive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB complies with the "all-or-nothing" rule – in case the modification of the entire data cannot be completed for some reason, the action is rolled back to prevent confusion or the loss of data. Magento and the latest editions of Joomla are two examples of widespread script-based applications which have moved to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to run any open-source script-driven application that needs InnoDB if you’ve got a cloud service with us, as the MySQL database storage engine is present on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform by default. Throughout the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will continue flawlessly in case this engine is required. You can activate applications which require the MyISAM engine without the need to deal with any difficulty as well and, once again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you will not need to configure any setting manually at any moment. On top of that, we will also generate daily backups of all the databases that you have in the account, so if you delete or overwrite something, we can quickly restore it the way it was on any of the past seven days.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
InnoDB is included with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting service by default, so as soon as you order a new account, you can move on and activate any PHP-driven app that needs the MySQL storage engine. A few engines are pre-installed on our cloud platform, so when you create a new MySQL database and begin installing an application manually, or opt to make use of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated app installer, the engine for the database will be set based on the prerequisites of the given application. This will permit you to install and manage InnoDB-specific apps without having to deal with any impediment and without the need to configure any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To take no chances, we’ll always have a one-week-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you remove or edit any content accidentally, we can swiftly recover it.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
All VPS web hosting service that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-installed, so you’ll be able to run any script-driven software app that requires this particular MySQL database storage engine without installing anything manually. You can pick Hepsia on the VPS order form and your brand-new VPS server will be ready within one hour, so you can sign in and start creating your web sites right away. Once you create a brand-new MySQL database and begin the app installation process, our system will choose the engine for that database automatically. Thus, you can run various apps simultaneously without the need to configure anything on the server. You can have a WordPress blog that uses MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento-driven online store that uses the InnoDB engine, for example.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
InnoDB is included as standard with all Linux dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It’s included in the standard software bundle that will be pre-installed on all Hepsia-equipped dedicated servers, so once your machine is assembled, you’ll be able to sign in and to install any script-powered web app that requires this particular MySQL database storage engine. If you create a new MySQL database via the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine until you start installing an application. As soon as the app activation wizard starts importing data into the newly created database, the engine will be chosen automatically on the basis of the prerequisites of the respective application, so you can run both MyISAM and InnoDB without the need to select either one specifically at any time. In this way, you can use an immense collection of applications for your websites.
