Become aware of what a database engine is, what exactly are the benefits of the InnoDB engine and why it's gaining that much global popularity.
InnoDB is a popular database storage engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has many strong sides that have made it the engine of choice for a lot of open-source script-based web applications, among them Magento and Joomla™, which have switched to InnoDB for good. For instance, adding enormous volumes of data will be faster with InnoDB, since it locks only one database row to execute a given task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the data is treated. Simply put, importing new or modifying existent data will either be entirely completed, or will be aborted and the procedure will be rolled back if a certain issue shows up during the process, hence the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.
InnoDB in Hosting
While InnoDB is either a paid upgrade or it is not available at all with other website hosting service providers, it is an integral part of the default set of services that we’re offering with our hosting
packages. If you would like to use an open-source script-based web app that needs InnoDB specifically, in order to be activated and to function properly, you won’t face any problems as the MySQL database engine is available on our custom-developed cloud platform. No matter if you set up a brand new database and install an app manually or use our single-click app installer software instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the application needs it rather than MyISAM. Besides the incredible database failure recovery that InnoDB offers, we also make daily backups of all databases, so we can quickly recover any MySQL database in your shared account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you create a brand-new MySQL database from the hosting Control Panel coming with all our semi-dedicated server
packages and you start installing an open-source script-based application either manually or using our 1-click application installer, the database storage engine will be set automatically depending on the prerequisites of the particular application. As InnoDB is available 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 each app that requires it without the need for any manual action on your end at any moment. To prevent any risk of losing data if you update an application or if you erase a database by accident, we will carry out backups of all your databases each and every day, so if something happens, we can retrieve your content.
InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting
In case our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is picked during the registration process for your new Linux VPS web hosting packages
, InnoDB will be installed on the server together with other essential pieces of software, so you will not need to do anything if you decide to manage open-source script-based web apps that need this MySQL database engine. MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, will be activated as well. You can set up a brand-new MySQL database and start the app installation process manually or through our single-click installation tool. The system will automatically recognize which engine the particular app requires and will assign it to the specific MySQL database, so the installation process will proceed impeccably and the app can insert its content into that database. Therefore, you can use applications with various requirements about the MySQL engine without making any changes on your Virtual Private Server.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the features that you can choose on the order form when you buy a dedicated server
from us. As this is the most powerful kind of hosting, it is quite likely that you will run popular sites that will draw many visitors, and since InnoDB is among the best choices for such sites, we will enable it together with all the other software apps that are available with a Hepsia-managed server. If you set up a new MySQL database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any activated MySQL storage engine until you start installing a script, whether manually through your browser or using the automatic script installer tool that is included in the Control Panel. The necessary engine will be detected automatically and will be assigned to the database in question, so you can run scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without any impediment.
