InnoDB is a database engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by famous PHP script-powered web apps like Magento and Joomla 3. It’s ideal for scalable applications, as it works really well when managing immense volumes of data. Rather than locking the entire table to append new information to a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can complete much more tasks for the same period of time. Furthermore, InnoDB offers a better database failure recovery and supports transactions and foreign key constraints – a set of rules that indicate how data inserts and updates should be handled. In case a specific operation hasn’t been entirely completed for some reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the content in the database will be preserved intact and will not be partially merged with newly imported content.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
InnoDB is available with all our cloud hosting plans by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you’ll be able to install and manage any PHP script-driven app that requires the database engine without having to deal with any obstacle once you open your shared website hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a specific MySQL database during the app activation, no matter if you use our single-click installation tool or create the database and set up the app manually, on the condition that the application requires it instead of the more popular MyISAM engine. We’ll make daily backups of all your databases, so you can be sure that you won’t ever lose any data if you delete a database by accident or you overwrite some essential information – you will simply have to touch base with us and we’ll restore the database the way it was.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the features which you can choose on the server order page when you buy a dedicated server from us. As this is the most powerful type of hosting, it’s rather likely that you’ll manage popular sites that will draw plenty of visitors, and since InnoDB is among the best options for such websites, we’ll enable it along with all the other software apps that are offered with a Hepsia-managed server. If you set up a new database in your account, there won’t be any active database storage engine till you start installing a PHP script, whether manually through your browser or using the automatic scripts installation tool that is included in the Control Panel. The necessary engine will be automatically recognized and will be assigned to the database in question, so you can install scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without needing to deal with any difficulty.
