InnoDB is a popular storage engine for MySQL. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has a lot of advantages which make it the engine of choice for plenty of open-source script-powered software apps, such as Magento and Joomla, which have switched over to InnoDB for good. For instance, adding immense volumes of data will be much faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only one row to perform a specific operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the information is tackled. Put simply, importing new or updating existing data will either be entirely completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back if any issue appears in the meantime, thus the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Website Hosting

You can make use of any PHP script-based software app that requires InnoDB if you have a website hosting service with us, as the database storage engine is present on our innovative cloud website hosting platform as standard. During the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will continue impeccably if this engine is required. You can install apps that need the MyISAM engine without having to deal with any obstacle as well and, once again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you won’t need to configure any setting manually at any point. Furthermore, we will also generate regular backups of all the MySQL databases that you have in your account, so in case you erase or overwrite anything, we can easily restore it the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you create a new MySQL database through the hosting Control Panel included with each of our semi-dedicated server plans and you begin installing a script-driven web application either manually or using our 1-click app installer, the storage engine for the MySQL database will be picked automatically depending on the given app’s requirements. Since InnoDB is available on the cloud platform where your new semi-dedicated hosting account will be created, it will be set as the default engine for each app that requires it without any manual intervention needed on your end at any time. To avoid any chance of losing information if you update an app or if you remove a database by mistake, we’ll generate a backup of all your databases each and every day, so if anything happens, we can rescue your data.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

If you select a virtual private server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, the InnoDB database storage engine will be an essential part of the default software package that will be installed on your Virtual Private Server before we give it to you. You won’t have to configure anything manually and you will be able to enable and use any PHP-driven web app that needs InnoDB as soon as your VPS is up and running, which takes no more than sixty minutes after the order submission procedure itself. Several engines are offered, so whenever you create a database using the Hepsia Control Panel, a specific engine will be activated once the app installation begins and our system will automatically recognize the engine that is required by the app in question. If you need MyISAM, for example, you won’t need to do anything different than installing the desired application, whether manually or using our app installer tool.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you acquire a new dedicated server, you’ll be able to choose one of the 3 Control Panels offered by our company – Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel. Any dedicated server ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-installed, so you will not need to install this MySQL database storage engine manually in order to be able to manage open-source script-driven software applications that require it. InnoDB is used by scalable applications and since a dedicated server will give you all the system resources that you require in order to run very large websites, it’s pretty possible that you’ll use InnoDB. You’ll be able to use other engines as well, so in case a specific application requires MyISAM instead of InnoDB, you will not encounter any problem while managing it. The engine that will be used will be detected automatically as soon as the app installation process starts, so you won’t need to tweak any settings manually at any time.
