InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining in popularity lately, as it offers a much better overall performance and a faster database crash recovery compared to the default engine that is used by the MySQL relational database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is endorsed by numerous programmers that write scalable apps, due to the fact that it works more effectively with enormous volumes of data, while it keeps the server load at a minimum. Also, it uses row-level locking if anything should be modified, while many other engines lock the entire table and therefore require more time to fulfill several consecutive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB adheres to a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – if the entire data modification cannot be completed successfully for any reason, the action is rolled back to prevent scrambling or the loss of data. Magento and the latest Joomla releases are two instances of widespread PHP script-based web apps which have switched over to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Website Hosting
While InnoDB is either not available or a paid upgrade with many other hosting providers, it is included in the default set of features that we’re offering with our website hosting plans. If you wish to make use of a PHP script-based application that requires InnoDB particularly, in order to be installed and to perform properly, you will not experience any difficulties as the database engine is available on our in-house developed cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of whether you set up a new database and activate an app manually or use our 1-click app installer tool, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our system as the default engine if the specific application requires it rather than MyISAM. Besides the remarkable database failure recovery offered by InnoDB, we also carry out regular backups of all databases, so that we can easily restore any database in your shared hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
InnoDB is included with each of our semi-dedicated servers by default, so as soon as you get a new account, you can go on and activate any PHP-based application that requires the MySQL database engine. A number of engines are pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so when you set up a brand-new database and begin installing an app manually, or opt to take advantage of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated app installer tool, the engine for the database will be picked based on the requirements of the given application. This will allow you to activate and manage InnoDB-specific apps without having to deal with any obstacle and without editing any settings in your account. To be on the safe side, we will always keep a one-week-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you delete or alter any content unintentionally, we can easily rescue it.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB already installed, so you will be able to use any PHP script-driven app that requires this database storage engine without installing anything manually. You can pick Hepsia on the VPS configuration page and your brand-new Virtual Private Server will be set up within the hour, so you can sign in and start building your web sites straight away. Once you set up a brand new MySQL database and start the app installation process, our system will set the engine for that database automatically. Thus, you can manage various applications at the same time without changing anything on the VPS server. You can have a WordPress blog that uses the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-based online store that makes use of InnoDB, for example.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is one of the features which you can pick on the server order page when you buy a dedicated server from our company. As this is the most powerful type of web hosting, it is pretty likely that you will manage highly popular Internet sites that will draw lots of visitors, and since InnoDB is one of the best options for such websites, we’ll install it together with all the other software applications that come with a Hepsia-equipped server. When you set up a new database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any active MySQL database engine till you start installing a script, whether manually via your browser or using the automatic scripts installer that is included in the Control Panel. The required engine will be detected automatically and will be set for that database, so you can use scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without any problems.
