InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got a lot of strengths which have made it the preferred engine for many script-based web applications, such as Magento and Joomla, which have moved to InnoDB permanently. For example, importing large data volumes will be much faster with InnoDB, as it locks only one row to carry out an operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable applications. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the info is treated. Simply put, importing new or editing existing data will either be entirely completed, or will be aborted and the operation will be rolled back in case any issue shows up during the process, thus the content that remains in the database will not be lost.
InnoDB in Website Hosting
Every open-source script-driven software application that requires InnoDB will run impeccably on our leading-edge cloud platform and the database storage engine is available with all our website hosting plans. Each time you create a database manually or our app installer tool creates one automatically and an app installation is started, the engine that the database will use will be selected in accordance with the app’s requirements without having to configure any setting in your web hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically for any application that requires this particular engine and you’ll be able to get the most out of its full capacity. We will make regular backups of your content, so if you unintentionally remove a MySQL database that’s important to you or you overwrite a certain part of it, we will be able to restore the database the way it was just a few hours earlier.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you create a brand-new MySQL database through the Control Panel provided with each of our semi-dedicated server packages and you begin installing an open-source script-driven software app either manually or using our single-click application installer, the MySQL database storage engine will be picked automatically based on the requirements of the given app. Since InnoDB is available on the cloud hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated account will be created, it will be set as the default engine for any application that requires it without any manual intervention required on your end at any moment. To prevent any risk of losing information if you update an app or if you delete a database accidentally, we’ll generate a backup of all your databases each and every day, so if anything goes wrong, we can restore your data.
InnoDB in VPS Hosting
In case our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is chosen during the registration process for a new Linux virtual private servers , InnoDB will be activated on the Virtual Private Server along with other required pieces of software, so you will not need to do anything if you choose to make use of open-source script-powered apps that require this MySQL database engine. The default MySQL engine – MyISAM, will be installed as well. You can create a brand-new database and begin installing the app manually or using our 1-click installer. The system will automatically recognize the engine that the particular app needs and will set it for the specific database, so the installation process will proceed impeccably and the app can enter its content into that database. Thus, you can make use of applications with different requirements with regard to the MySQL engine without having to make any changes on your Virtual Private Server.
InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting
InnoDB is included as standard with all dedicated web hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It’s an integral part of the default software package that we install on all Hepsia-equipped servers, so as soon as your machine is up and running, you will be able to log in and to activate a various PHP script-driven software application that requires this particular MySQL storage engine. If you create a new MySQL database via the Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine until you start installing an app. Once the app activation wizard begins entering information into the newly created database, the engine will be set automatically based on the prerequisites of the particular app, so you can use both MyISAM and InnoDB without selecting either of them explicitly at any moment. In this way, you can make use of a huge range of apps for your websites.
