InnoDB is a very popular database storage engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has numerous strong sides that have made it the preferred engine for lots of open-source script-driven apps, such as Magento and Joomla, which have switched over to InnoDB permanently. For instance, importing enormous volumes of data will be much faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only one database row to execute a particular operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is handled. Put simply, importing new or editing existing data will either be fully completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back if a given problem appears during the process, therefore the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
While InnoDB is either not offered or it is a paid upgrade with other web hosting providers, it is part of the default set of services that we offer with our cloud hosting packages. If you’d like to use a PHP script-based app that requires InnoDB specifically, in order to be activated and to operate properly, you will not face any problems because the MySQL database storage engine is available on our custom cloud web hosting platform. No matter if you create a new MySQL database and install an app manually or use our one-click app installer instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the respective app needs it rather than MyISAM. In addition to the amazing crash recovery that InnoDB offers, we also maintain daily database backups, so that we can easily restore any database in your shared account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you set up a new MySQL database through the hosting Control Panel included with each of our semi-dedicated server packages and you begin installing a PHP-driven software app either manually or using our one-click app installer tool, the storage engine for the MySQL database will be set automatically depending on the requirements of the specific app. As InnoDB is available on the cloud platform where your new semi-dedicated server account will be created, it will be set as the default engine for each app that requires it without any manual intervention needed on your end at any time. To avoid any risk of losing info if you update an app or if you remove a database by mistake, we’ll generate backups of all your MySQL databases each and every day, so if anything happens, we can recover your data.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
If you get a VPS server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB database storage engine will be part of the standard software bundle that will be installed on your VPS server before we hand it over to you. You will not have to set up anything manually and you’ll be able to install and use any open-source script-driven app that requires InnoDB as soon as your VPS is set up, which takes no more than 1 hour after the order process itself. Several engines are available, so anytime you set up a database using the Hepsia Control Panel, a particular engine will be activated once the app installation process begins and our system will detect which engine is required by the application in question. If you have to use MyISAM, for example, you will not have to do anything different from installing the desired app, whether manually or using our application installer tool.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
Our Hepsia Control Panel is one of the options which you can pick on the order form when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. Since this is the most powerful kind of hosting, it is rather likely that you’ll run highly popular Internet sites that will draw plenty of people, and since InnoDB is among the best options for such websites, we’ll install it together with all the other software applications that are available with a Hepsia-managed server. If you create a brand-new MySQL database in your account, there won’t be any active database engine till you start installing an open-source script, whether manually via your web browser or using the automatic script installer tool that is included in the Control Panel. The required engine will be automatically recognized and will be assigned to the database in question, so you can install scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without any obstacle.
