What?s InnoDB? Why has it been selected as the standard MySQL storage engine?
InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining popularity lately, as it provides a significantly better overall performance and an improved database crash recovery compared to the default engine that’s used by the MySQL DBMS – MyISAM. InnoDB is preferred by plenty of web developers that write highly scalable software applications, because it works much more efficiently with immense volumes of data, while it keeps the server processing load at a minimum. What’s more, it locks only a single database row if any information should be edited, whereas lots of other engines lock the entire table and therefore require much more time to accomplish several sequential tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB observes the "all-or-nothing" rule – in case the entire data modification procedure cannot be completed for any reason, the operation is rolled back to avoid confusion or data loss. Magento and the newest editions of Joomla™ are two instances of widely used open-source script-based web applications which have moved to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting
InnoDB is available with all our Linux cloud website hosting
by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you’ll be able to install and run any open-source script-driven web application that needs the InnoDB database storage engine without any impediments as soon as you open your account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a particular database during the app installation process, regardless of whether you make use of our 1-click installer or create the database and install the app manually, as long as the app requires InnoDB instead of the more popular MyISAM engine. We will generate daily database backups, so you can be certain that you will never lose any content in case you delete a database by accident or you overwrite some key information – you will simply need to get in touch with us and we will restore your content back to normal.
InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting
Our Hepsia Control Panel is one of the options which you can choose on the order page when you purchase a dedicated server
from us. As this is the most powerful type of website hosting, it’s quite likely that you will manage popular Internet sites that will attract lots of people, and since InnoDB is one of the best choices for such sites, we’ll install it together with all the other software apps that are available with a Hepsia-managed dedicated server. If you set up a new database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any active database storage engine till you start installing a PHP script, whether manually via your Internet browser or using the automatic script installer tool that is integrated into the Control Panel. The necessary engine will be detected automatically and will be set for the database in question, so you can install scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without having any complication.
