InnoDB is a MySQL storage engine, which has been gaining popularity lately, as it provides a much better overall performance and an improved database failure recovery in comparison to the default engine used by MySQL – MyISAM. InnoDB is preferred by many web developers that run highly scalable software applications, due to the fact that it works much better with large data volumes, while it keeps the server processing load low. Additionally, it uses row-level locking if any information should be updated, whereas lots of other engines lock the entire table and therefore need more time to fulfill several successive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB abides by the "all-or-nothing" rule – in case the entire data modification procedure cannot be completed successfully for whatever reason, the operation is rolled back to prevent scrambling or losing data. Magento and the latest Joomla editions are two instances of popular open-source script-based web applications which have moved to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting
You can use any script-powered web app that requires InnoDB in case you’ve got a Linux cloud website hosting with our company, as the MySQL database storage engine is present on our innovative cloud platform by default. Throughout the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will proceed impeccably in case this engine is needed. You can install apps that require the MyISAM engine without the need to deal with any problem as well and, again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you won’t have to update anything manually at any time. What’s more, we’ll also carry out regular backups of all the databases that you have in your account, so if you delete or overwrite something, we can easily get it back to the way it was on any of the previous seven days.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with InnoDB and you will be able to use all the features offered by this MySQL database engine with any open-source script-driven application that requires it. It is one of the engines that are available on our cloud web hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the requirements of the given app. You won’t have to do anything manually to activate InnoDB, since it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an application – whether manually or using our 1-click application installer tool. To be on the safe side, we will maintain regular backups of all your databases, so if something goes wrong after some update or if you remove some data by mistake, we will be able to restore your database the way it was on any of the past 7 days.
InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting
InnoDB is included as standard with all Linux dedicated web hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is an essential part of the default software package that we install on all Hepsia-managed servers, so once your physical machine is assembled, you’ll be able to sign in and to activate any type of PHP-powered application that needs this MySQL database engine. When you set up a new database via the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine until you begin installing an application. Once the app installation wizard starts entering data into the database, the engine will be chosen automatically based on the prerequisites of the specific app, so you can use both MyISAM and InnoDB without selecting either one of them specifically at any moment. Thus, you can use an extensive selection of applications for your Internet sites.
