Become aware of what a database engine is, what exactly are the benefits of the InnoDB engine and why it's gaining a lot of global popularity.
InnoDB is a database storage engine for MySQL databases, which is used by widespread script-based web apps like Joomla™ 3 and Magento. It’s ideal for scalable apps, because it performs unbelievably well when processing huge volumes of data. Rather than locking the entire database table to enter new information into a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can execute a lot more tasks for the same length of time. Additionally, InnoDB offers a much better crash recovery and supports database transactions and foreign key constraints – rules that determine how data imports and updates should be handled. In case a particular operation hasn’t been fully completed for some reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the database content will remain undamaged and won’t be partially merged with newly imported content.
InnoDB in Shared Hosting
You can run any script-based software app that requires InnoDB if you have a shared hosting service
with our company, as the database storage engine is present on our advanced cloud hosting platform as standard. During the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will continue impeccably in case this engine is required. You can install applications that require the MyISAM engine without encountering any impediment as well and, again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you will not have to change any setting manually at any moment. What’s more, we’ll also perform daily backups of all the MySQL databases that you have in your account, so if you delete or overwrite anything, we can easily get it back to the way it was on any of the past 7 days.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
InnoDB is offered with all our Linux semi-dedicated services
by default, so as soon as you order a new semi-dedicated account, you can move on and install any PHP-powered web application that needs this MySQL database storage engine. A couple of engines are pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so when you create a brand new MySQL database and start installing an app manually, or decide to take advantage of the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated app installer, the engine for the database will be picked on the basis of the prerequisites of the application in question. This will permit you to activate and run InnoDB-specific apps without needing to cope with any impediment and without needing to change any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To avoid any risk, we’ll always keep a one-week-old backup of all your databases, so if you delete or alter any content by accident, we can swiftly rescue it.
InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting
All VPS web hosting services
that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB already installed, so you will be able to take advantage of any open-source script-driven web application that needs this particular MySQL storage engine without having to configure anything manually. You can pick Hepsia on the VPS order page and your brand new server will be set up within 60 minutes, so you can log in and begin creating your Internet sites straight away. When you set up a brand new database and begin the app activation process, our system will set the engine for that database automatically. In this way, you can make use of different apps simultaneously without configuring anything on the Virtual Private Server. You can set up a WordPress blog that uses MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento-based online shopping portal that makes use of the InnoDB engine, for instance.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is among the features that you can select on the order page when you purchase a dedicated server
from us. Since this is the most powerful kind of website hosting, it’s very likely that you’ll run highly popular websites that will attract lots of individuals, and since InnoDB is one of the best choices for such sites, we will activate it along with all the other software applications that are available with a Hepsia-equipped server. If you create a new database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any active MySQL database storage engine till you start installing an open-source PHP script, whether manually via your web browser or using the automatic scripts installer tool that is integrated into the hosting Control Panel. The required engine will be recognized and will be assigned to the database in question, so you can activate scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without having any obstacle.
