InnoDB is a database engine for MySQL databases, which is used by widely used open-source script-powered web apps such as Magento and Joomla 3. It’s perfect for scalable apps, as it works really well when processing immense volumes of data. Instead of locking the whole table to add new information to a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can carry out a lot more tasks for the same length of time. Moreover, InnoDB offers a better database failure recovery and supports database transactions and foreign key constraints – rules that define how data inserts and modifications should be handled. If a specific task has not been fully completed for any reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the content in the database will remain undamaged and won’t be partially merged with newly appended content.
InnoDB in Hosting
InnoDB is available with all our Linux hosting by default, not as a paid upgrade or upon request, so you can install and manage any open-source script-based app which needs the MySQL storage engine without having to deal with any problem once you activate your shared hosting account. InnoDB will be pre-selected as the default engine for a certain MySQL database during the app installation, irrespective of whether you make use of our 1-click installation tool or create the database and install the app manually, provided that the application requires it instead of the more famous MyISAM engine. We’ll keep daily MySQL database backups, so you can rest assured that you’ll never lose any content in case you erase a database by mistake or you overwrite some crucial information – you will simply need to touch base with us and we will restore your database back to normal.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with InnoDB and you’ll be able to get the most out of all the options offered by this MySQL database engine with any script-driven web app that requires it. InnoDB 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 particular application. You won’t need to do anything manually to activate InnoDB, because it will be set as the default engine when you install an app – whether manually or using our one-click application installer. To be on the safe side, we will create daily backups of all your MySQL databases, so if something goes wrong after an update or if you delete some data by accident, we’ll be able to get the database back to the way it was on any of the previous seven days.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting
InnoDB is available by default with all Linux dedicated servers hosting ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It’s an integral part of the software bundle that will be installed on all Hepsia-managed servers, so once your machine is set up, you will be able to log in and to install a various script-powered application that needs this database storage engine. When you set up a new MySQL database via the Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine until you begin installing an application. Once the app installation wizard starts entering content into the database, the engine will be set automatically depending on the prerequisites of the app in question, so you can run both MyISAM and InnoDB without having to select either of them specifically at any point. In this way, you can make use of a large collection of applications for your websites.
