InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years, because it provides a much better overall performance and an improved crash recovery in comparison to the default engine that is used by the MySQL database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is used by many developers that create highly scalable web apps, since it works more effectively with large volumes of data, while it keeps the server load at a minimum. Furthermore, it uses row-level locking if anything should be updated, whereas many other engines lock the entire table and hence require more time to execute several consecutive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB observes a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – in case the entire data modification process cannot be completed successfully for any reason, the action is rolled back to prevent scrambling or losing data. Magento and the newest versions of Joomla™ are two examples of popular script-driven software platforms which have moved to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting
While InnoDB is either not offered or it is a paid upgrade with many hosting service providers, it’s an integral part of the standard set of services that we offer with our cloud web hosting
packages. If you wish to make use of a PHP-driven application that requires InnoDB in particular, in order to be installed and to perform properly, you will not encounter any difficulties since the database storage engine is available on our custom-built cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of whether you set up a new database and activate an app manually or make use of our single-click application installer software instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the application requires InnoDB instead of MyISAM. Besides the remarkable database crash recovery offered by InnoDB, we also maintain regular database backups, so we can quickly restore any MySQL database in your shared account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
InnoDB is available with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
by default, so as soon as you get a new account, you can go on and activate any PHP script-powered application that needs this MySQL storage engine. A few engines are installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so when you set up a new database and start installing an app manually, or opt to make use of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated application installer tool, the engine for the database will be selected depending on the particular app’s requirements. This will permit you to install and manage InnoDB-specific applications without any predicaments and without the need to configure any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To take no chances, we’ll always have a 1-week-old backup of all your databases, so if you remove or alter any content accidentally, we can easily recover it.
InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting
Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the options that you can pick on the order page when you buy a dedicated server
from us. As this is the most powerful kind of hosting, it is pretty likely that you will manage highly popular Internet sites that will draw plenty of individuals, and since InnoDB is among the best choices for such sites, we will enable it along with all the other software apps that are available with a Hepsia-managed dedicated server. If you set up a new database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any activated MySQL database engine until you start installing an open-source PHP script, whether manually via your browser or using the automatic scripts installer tool that is integrated into the hosting Control Panel. The needed engine will be automatically recognized and will be assigned to that database, so you can make use of scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without any complications.
