InnoDB is a very popular database storage engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has plenty of pluses which have made it the preferred engine for lots of open-source script-based software apps, such as Joomla and Magento, which have switched to InnoDB permanently. For example, adding immense amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, as it locks only a single row to perform a given task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the info is handled. Simply put, adding new or updating existent data will either be fully completed, or will be aborted and the procedure will be rolled back if any problem appears during the process, so the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.
InnoDB in Web Hosting
InnoDB is offered with all our Linux web hosting plans by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you will be able to activate and run any open-source script-based software app that needs the InnoDB storage engine without the need to deal with any problem once you order your account. InnoDB will be pre-selected as the default engine for a certain database during the app activation, regardless of whether you use our single-click installation tool or create the MySQL database and activate the application manually, as long as the application requires it instead of the more popular MyISAM engine. We’ll make daily MySQL database backups, so you can be certain that you’ll never lose any data if you delete a database by mistake or you overwrite some crucial info – you’ll just need to contact us and we will restore your database the way it was.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated hosting plans include InnoDB and you’ll be able to get the most out of all the features offered by this database storage engine with any open-source script-powered web app that needs it. InnoDB is among the engines that we have on our cloud web hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the given app’s requirements. You will not have to do anything manually to activate InnoDB, because it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an app – whether manually or using our single-click application installer tool. To avoid any risk, we’ll store regular database backups, so if something goes wrong following some update or if you remove some data by accident, we will be able to get your database back to the way it was on any of the past seven days.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
When you acquire a VPS server from our company, you’ll be able to make use of our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel to manage your web content. A Hepsia-managed Virtual Private Server will allow you to run any PHP-based app which needs InnoDB, as this MySQL database storage engine is an integral part of the standard software package that will be pre-installed on the server during its creation. When you create a brand-new database using the Control Panel, you just have to start installing an application – manually or using our app installer. InnoDB will be set as the default engine as long as the application in question needs it, so you will not have to do anything else in your account. In the same manner, if a certain app requires MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this specific MySQL database.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
All Linux dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel include a software bundle that’s pre-installed and among everything else, you will get the InnoDB database storage engine, so you won’t need to install it manually in case you need to run open-source scripts that require it. All it takes to activate such a script is to set up a new MySQL database and to begin the installation – as soon as the script configuration wizard acquires access to the database and begins inserting content into it, InnoDB will be set as the default MySQL engine for this database on the condition that it is the one required by the script. You’ll also be able to install scripts that require MyISAM, the other widely used MySQL engine, so you won’t have to edit any settings on the server. This will permit you to install different scripts on a single machine and to use the latter to its full potential.
