InnoDB is a database storage engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by widespread PHP-powered web apps such as Joomla 3 and Magento. It’s ideal for scalable applications, as it works really well when handling large amounts of data. Rather than locking the whole database table to insert new information in a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can process much more tasks for the same period of time. Additionally, InnoDB offers a much better database failure recovery and supports database transactions and foreign keys – rules that prescribe how data inserts and modifications should be treated. If a specific task has not been thoroughly completed for whatever reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the database content will be retained undamaged and will not be partially merged with newly imported content.
InnoDB in Website Hosting
InnoDB is offered with all our Linux website hosting by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you’ll be able to install and manage any open-source script-powered application which requires the database engine without encountering any difficulty as soon as you order your account. InnoDB will be pre-selected as the default engine for a certain MySQL database during the app installation, regardless of whether you make use of our 1-click installation tool or create the database and set up the app manually, on the condition that the app requires InnoDB instead of the more famous MyISAM engine. We’ll keep regular backups of all your databases, so you can be sure that you will never lose any content in case you erase a database accidentally or you overwrite some key info – you will just need to get in touch with us and we’ll restore your database back to normal.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is one of the features which you can choose on the server configuration page when you buy a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful kind of website hosting, it’s very likely that you will manage highly popular Internet sites that will draw lots of people, and since InnoDB is among the very best choices for such websites, we’ll install it along with all the other software applications that are offered with a Hepsia-managed server. If you set up a new MySQL database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any active MySQL storage engine till you begin installing a script, whether manually via your browser or using the automatic script installation tool that is available in the hosting Control Panel. The required engine will be automatically recognized and will be assigned to the database in question, so you can activate scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without encountering any difficulty.
