See what a database engine is, what are the benefits of the InnoDB engine and why it is gaining a lot of global popularity.
InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got lots of pluses that make it the engine of choice for plenty of open-source script-based applications, such as Magento and Joomla™, which have switched over to InnoDB for good. For example, importing enormous amounts of data will be much faster with InnoDB, since it locks only one row to accomplish a specific operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is treated. Simply put, adding new or updating existent data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be aborted and the operation will be rolled back in case any issue occurs in the meantime, hence the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.
InnoDB in Shared Web Hosting
Every PHP-powered web app that needs InnoDB will run flawlessly on our cutting-edge cloud platform and the database storage engine is offered with all our shared web hosting
plans. Each time you create a MySQL database manually or our app installer tool creates one automatically and an app installation is started, the engine that the database in question will use will be selected in accordance with the app’s prerequisites without having to modify any setting in your web hosting account. InnoDB will be chosen automatically for any app that requires this particular engine and you’ll be able to get the most out of its full capacity. We will store daily backups of your content, so in case you accidentally delete a MySQL database that is important to you or you overwrite a certain part of it, we will be able to restore the database the way it was just a couple of hours earlier.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you create a brand new MySQL database from the Control Panel included with each of our semi-dedicated server
accounts and you begin installing a PHP-powered software application either manually or using our 1-click app installer, the storage engine for the MySQL database will be picked automatically based on the requirements of the given app. As InnoDB is present on the cloud platform where your new semi-dedicated account will be created, it will be set as the default engine for each application that requires it without any manual action required on your end at any time. To prevent any risk of losing data if you update an app or if you erase a database accidentally, we will make backups of all your MySQL databases every day, so if anything happens, we can restore your data.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting
InnoDB is available by default with all Linux dedicated servers hosting
that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is an essential part of the default software bundle that will be pre-installed on all Hepsia-equipped dedicated servers, so once your machine is up and running, you will be able to log in and to install any type of script-based software app that needs this particular database storage engine. When you create a new MySQL database via the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine till you start installing an application. As soon as the app configuration wizard begins dumping content in the database, the engine will be picked automatically based on the prerequisites of the app in question, so you can use both MyISAM and InnoDB without having to select either one explicitly at any moment. In this way, you can use an immense collection of apps for your websites.
