InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for the MySQL DBMS. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got numerous pluses that have made it the preferred engine for numerous open-source script-based web apps, including Joomla and Magento, which have shifted over to InnoDB for good. For example, adding large amounts of data will be much faster with InnoDB, because it locks only one row to accomplish a particular operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the data is treated. Put simply, adding new or updating existing data will either be fully completed, or will be annulled and the operation will be rolled back if a certain problem occurs in the meantime, so the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.

InnoDB in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to run any PHP script-based web application that requires InnoDB if you’ve got a shared hosting service with our company, as the database 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 run applications that need the MyISAM engine without encountering any impediment as well and, once again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you won’t need to update anything manually at any point. In addition, we will also make daily backups of all the databases that you have in the shared hosting account, so if you delete or overwrite anything, we can quickly restore it the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you set up a brand-new MySQL database from the Control Panel offered with each of our semi-dedicated server plans and you begin installing a script-based web app either manually or using our 1-click app installer, the storage engine for the MySQL database will be set automatically depending on the prerequisites of the particular application. As InnoDB is available on the cloud hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated server account will be set up, it will be set as the default engine for each app that needs it without the need for any manual action on your end at any time. To prevent any risk of losing information if you update an application or if you erase a database accidentally, we’ll generate backups of all your databases each and every day, so if something happens, we can restore your content.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

When you get a virtual private server from us, you’ll be able to take advantage of our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel to manage your web content. A Hepsia-equipped Virtual Private Server will allow you to install any PHP-based app that requires InnoDB, as this database storage engine is part of the software bundle that will be pre-installed on the Virtual Private Server during its creation. When you set up a brand new database via the Control Panel, you simply need to begin installing an app – manually or using our application installer tool. InnoDB will be set as the default engine if the application in question needs it, so you won’t need to do anything else in your VPS account. Identically, if a given app needs MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this particular database.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the features which you can select on the server configuration page when you buy a dedicated server from our company. Since this is the most powerful kind of hosting, it is quite likely that you will manage popular Internet sites that will attract plenty of people, and since InnoDB is among the very best options for such Internet sites, we will install it along with all the other software apps that are offered with a Hepsia-equipped server. If you set up a brand-new database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any activated MySQL database engine until you start installing an open-source script, whether manually through your Internet browser or using the automatic scripts installer tool that is included in the Control Panel. The required engine will be detected and will be assigned to that database, so you can make use of scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without any problems.
