InnoDB is a MySQL storage engine, which has been gaining in popularity lately, as it provides a better overall performance and an improved database crash recovery in comparison with the default engine that is used by the MySQL database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is used by numerous programmers that run scalable web applications, due to the fact that it works much more effectively with enormous data volumes, while it keeps the server load low. Additionally, it it locks only one row in the database in case any info should be edited, whereas many other engines lock the entire table and hence need more time to carry out multiple consecutive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB obeys a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – if the entire data modification process cannot be completed for some reason, the operation is rolled back to avoid scrambling or losing data. Magento and the latest releases of Joomla are two instances of widespread script-driven web applications which have moved to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Web Hosting
You will be able to run any script-based application that needs InnoDB in case you have a Linux web hosting with us, as the storage engine is available on our advanced cloud platform as standard. Throughout the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will proceed impeccably in case this engine is required. You can install applications that require the MyISAM engine without having any difficulty as well and, again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you will not need to edit anything manually at any point. In addition, we will also create daily backups of all the databases that you’ve got in your shared web hosting account, so in case you erase or overwrite something, we can quickly restore it the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can install a script-based app that needs InnoDB with any of our semi-dedicated server packages, as all the accounts are set up on our avant-garde cloud platform where the MySQL database storage engine is installed. A new MySQL database can be created in two different ways – manually through the Database Manager section of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, or automatically – if you make use of our single-click app installer tool. Either way, the required engine will be chosen automatically once the app’s installation begins, so you won’t have to change anything manually, irrespective of whether the app requires InnoDB or the more widely used MyISAM. Furthermore, we’ll always be able to retrieve any of your databases in case you erase one by mistake, as we carry out several backups every day, each of which is saved for one week.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB already activated, so you will be able to use any script-based software app that requires this particular database engine without the need to set up anything manually. You can choose Hepsia on the VPS order page and your brand-new VPS server will be set up within the hour, so you can log in and start setting up your web sites straight away. When you create a brand new database and start the app installation process, our system will pick the engine for this MySQL database automatically. Thus, you can run different applications simultaneously without the need to update anything on the VPS server. You can create a WordPress online blog that makes use of the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-driven shopping portal that uses InnoDB, for example.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
When you acquire a new dedicated server, you’ll be able to choose any of the 3 Control Panels offered by our company – Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel. Each server ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-activated, so you won’t have to add this database engine manually to be able to run open-source script-based software apps that need it. InnoDB is used by scalable applications and since a dedicated server will offer you all the system resources that you need in order to run large-size websites, it’s pretty likely that you will resort to InnoDB. You will be able to use other engines as well, so if a specific application needs MyISAM instead of InnoDB, you will not have to deal with any impediment while using it. The engine that will be used will be recognized automatically the moment the app installation procedure commences, so you will not need to update any setting manually at any time.
