InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by famous PHP-driven web apps such as Magento and Joomla v3. It is perfect for scalable apps, as it works amazingly well when handling enormous amounts of data. Instead of locking the entire table to import new information into a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can carry out a lot more tasks for the same period of time. Additionally, InnoDB offers a much better database crash recovery and supports database transactions and foreign key constraints – a set of rules that specify how data inserts and modifications should be treated. If a certain task has not been thoroughly completed for some reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the content in the database will be kept intact and will not be partially mixed with newly appended content.
InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting
While InnoDB is either a paid upgrade or it is not available at all with many web hosting providers, it’s an integral part of the standard set of services offered with our cloud website hosting packages. In case you’d like to make use of an open-source script-driven web application that requires InnoDB particularly, in order to be installed and to work properly, you won’t face any impediments since the storage engine is available on our in-house developed cloud website hosting platform. Irrespective of whether you create a brand new database and install an application manually or make use of our single-click application installer instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the specific app requires it instead of MyISAM. In addition to the remarkable crash recovery that InnoDB offers, we also carry out regular database backups, so that we can easily recover any database in your shared website hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated plans come with InnoDB and you can make use of all the options offered by this database engine with any PHP-based web application that needs it. It is one of the engines that we have on our cloud website hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the prerequisites of the particular application. You won’t have to do anything manually to activate InnoDB, since it will be set as the default engine when you install an application – whether manually or using our single-click application installer. To be on the safe side, we’ll make daily database backups, so if anything goes wrong following an upgrade or if you remove some data by accident, we’ll be able to restore the database the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the options which you can select on the server order page when you buy a dedicated server from our company. Since this is the most powerful type of hosting, it’s very likely that you will run popular Internet sites that will attract plenty of visitors, and since InnoDB is among the very best options for such Internet sites, we will activate it together with all the other software apps that are offered with a Hepsia-managed dedicated server. When you set up a brand new MySQL database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any activated database engine till you begin installing an open-source PHP script, whether manually through your Internet browser or using the automatic scripts installer tool that is integrated into the hosting Control Panel. The needed engine will be recognized automatically and will be assigned to that database, so you can install scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without encountering any complication.
