InnoDB is a very popular database storage engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got a number of strong sides that have made it the preferred engine for lots of PHP script-driven applications, among them Magento and Joomla, which have switched to InnoDB permanently. For instance, adding immense volumes of data will be faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only a single row to carry out a task, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is tackled. To put it simply, adding new or modifying existent data will either be entirely completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back if a given issue shows up during the process, which means that the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
While InnoDB is either not available or a paid upgrade with other hosting companies, it’s an essential part of the standard set of features that we are offering with our cloud hosting plans. In case you’d like to make use of a script-based application that needs InnoDB particularly, in order to be installed and to operate properly, you will not experience any difficulties since the InnoDB storage engine is available on our custom cloud Internet hosting platform. No matter if you create a brand new MySQL database and install an application manually or use our single-click application installer instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our system as the default engine if the respective app requires it rather than MyISAM. In addition to the incredible crash recovery that InnoDB is offering, we also carry out regular database backups, so we can quickly restore any MySQL database in your shared account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can make use of a PHP script-based app that requires InnoDB with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, because all the accounts are set up on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform where the database storage engine is installed. A new MySQL database can be created in two separate ways – manually through the Database Manager section of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, or automatically – when you use our 1-click application installer tool. Either way, the required engine will be picked automatically once the activation of the app begins, so you will not have to update anything manually, no matter if the app needs InnoDB or the more commonly used MyISAM. On top of that, we’ll always be able to retrieve any of your MySQL databases if you delete one by accident, as we carry out a couple of database backups every day, each of which is preserved for 1 week.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
If you order a VPS server from us, you’ll be able to take advantage of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel to manage your web content. A Hepsia-managed VPS will allow you to activate any PHP script-driven web app which requires InnoDB, as the database storage engine is an essential part of the software package that will be pre-installed on your VPS server during its setup. When you set up a brand-new database via the Control Panel, you simply need to start installing an application – manually or using our application installer tool. InnoDB will be set as the default engine on the condition that the application in question needs it, so you will not need to do anything else in your VPS account. Likewise, if an app requires MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this concrete database.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is one of the features which you can select on the server configuration page when you buy a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful type of web hosting, it is pretty likely that you’ll run highly popular websites that will draw lots of visitors, and since InnoDB is one of the very best options for such websites, we’ll enable it along with all the other software apps that are offered with a Hepsia-managed dedicated server. If you set up a brand-new database in your account, there won’t be any active MySQL database storage engine until you begin installing an open-source script, whether manually via your browser or using the automatic script installer tool that is available in the hosting Control Panel. The required engine will be automatically detected and will be assigned to the database in question, so you can run scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without the need to cope with any obstacle.
