InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL databases, which is used by famous PHP-powered software applications such as Joomla 3.x and Magento. It’s excellent for scalable apps, since it works unbelievably well when processing immense amounts of data. Instead of locking the whole database table to append new information to a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can process a lot more operations for the same length of time. What’s more, InnoDB offers a faster crash recovery and supports transactions and foreign keys – a set of rules that prescribe how data imports and updates should be treated. In case a specific task hasn’t been thoroughly completed for any reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the content in the database will stay safe and sound and won’t be partially mixed with newly entered content.
InnoDB in Shared Hosting
You will be able to activate any PHP script-based app that requires InnoDB if you have a Linux shared package with our company, as the storage engine is present on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform as standard. During the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will continue flawlessly if this engine is needed. You can install applications which need the MyISAM engine without having to deal with any difficulty as well and, again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you will not need to modify any setting manually at any moment. Furthermore, we’ll also perform daily backups of all the databases that you’ve got in your shared hosting account, so if you delete or overwrite anything, we can quickly restore it the way it was on any of the previous seven days.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you set up a new MySQL database from the hosting Control Panel provided with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you begin installing a PHP script-powered web application either manually or using our one-click application installer, the MySQL database storage engine will be selected automatically on the basis of the prerequisites of the given app. Since InnoDB is present on the cloud web hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated server account will be set up, it will be set as the default engine for any app that needs it without the need for any manual action on your end at any time. To prevent any risk of losing information if you update an app or if you delete a database by accident, we will perform backups of all your MySQL databases each day, so if something happens, we can rescue your content.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Our Hepsia Control Panel is one of the features which you can choose on the order form when you buy a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful kind of hosting, it is quite likely that you will run popular Internet sites that will attract many visitors, and since InnoDB is one of the best options for such Internet sites, we will activate it along with all the other software applications that are available with a Hepsia-equipped dedicated server. If you set up a brand-new database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any activated MySQL database engine till you start installing a script, whether manually through your web browser or using the automatic scripts installation tool that is available in the hosting Control Panel. The required engine will be detected automatically and will be assigned to that database, so you can activate scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without the need to cope with any problem.
