InnoDB is a very popular database engine for the MySQL database management system. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got lots of strong sides which have made it the preferred engine for lots of PHP script-powered web applications, such as Magento and Joomla, which have switched to InnoDB for good. For instance, adding enormous data volumes will be much faster with InnoDB, as it locks only one row to perform a particular operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the data is treated. Put simply, adding new or editing existent data will either be fully completed, or will be annulled and the procedure will be rolled back if a given problem appears in the meantime, therefore the content that remains in the database will not be lost.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
Every PHP-based software app that requires InnoDB will function flawlessly on our innovative cloud web hosting platform and the MySQL database engine comes with all our cloud hosting packages. Every time you create a database manually or our app installer tool creates one automatically and an app installation process is initiated, the engine that the database in question will make use of will be selected on the basis of the app’s prerequisites without the need to configure any setting in your shared account. InnoDB will be chosen automatically for any application that requires this specific engine and you will be able to make the most of its full potential. We’ll generate daily content backups, so in case you accidentally erase a MySQL database that is important to you or you overwrite a specific part of it, we’ll be able to restore your data the way it was just several hours ago.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can use a script-driven app that needs InnoDB with any of our semi-dedicated server plans, due to the fact that all the accounts are set up on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform where the MySQL storage engine is installed. A new database can be created in two separate ways – manually from the Database Manager section of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, or automatically – when you take advantage of our single-click app installer tool. Either way, the needed engine will be picked automatically the moment the app’s installation starts, so you will not have to modify anything manually, regardless of whether the application needs InnoDB or the more frequently used MyISAM. In addition, we’ll always be able to retrieve any of your MySQL databases in case you accidentally erase one, as we make several MySQL database backups every day, each of which is saved for 1 week.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB already activated, so you’ll be able to take advantage of any PHP-driven app that requires this MySQL database engine without the need to activate anything manually. You can choose Hepsia on the VPS order page and your brand new Virtual Private Server will be up and running within one hour, so you can sign in and begin setting up your web sites straight away. Once you create a brand-new database and start the app activation process, our system will pick the engine for this MySQL database automatically. Thus, you can activate various apps simultaneously without the need to update anything on the server. You can create a WordPress-powered personal journal that makes use of the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento shopping portal that uses InnoDB, for instance.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is among the features that you can select on the server configuration page when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. Since this is the most powerful kind of hosting, it’s rather likely that you’ll manage highly popular Internet sites that will draw a lot of visitors, and since InnoDB is among the very best choices for such Internet sites, we’ll activate it along with all the other software applications that come with a Hepsia-equipped server. If you create a brand new database in your account, there won’t be any activated database storage engine till you start installing a PHP script, whether manually via your Internet browser or using the automatic scripts installer that is available in the Control Panel. The needed engine will be automatically recognized and will be set for the database in question, so you can install scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without experiencing any complication.
