InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for the MySQL DBMS. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got a lot of upsides that have made it the preferred engine for numerous script-based software apps, such as Joomla and Magento, which have shifted over to InnoDB permanently. For instance, adding huge amounts of data will be much faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only one row to complete a specific task, not the entire database 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 info is tackled. Simply put, importing new or modifying existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back if any problem appears during the process, thus the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to run any PHP-powered software app that requires InnoDB in case you’ve got a Linux cloud hosting with our company, as the database storage engine is available on our advanced cloud website hosting platform as standard. During the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will proceed impeccably in case this engine is needed. You can run apps that use the MyISAM engine without encountering any difficulty as well and, again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you will not need to update any setting manually at any point. On top of that, we’ll also generate regular backups of all the MySQL databases that you have in your shared web hosting account, so in case you delete or overwrite something, we can quickly get it back to the way it was on any of the past seven days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

InnoDB is offered with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting by default, so the moment you obtain a new semi-dedicated account, you can go ahead and activate any PHP script-driven software app that needs the storage engine. A couple of engines are installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so when you set up a brand new MySQL database and start installing an app manually, or decide to make use of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated application installer, the engine for the database will be selected on the basis of the specific app’s requirements. This will permit you to install and run InnoDB-specific applications without having any impediment and without the need to change any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To avoid any risk, we’ll always keep a 1-week-old backup of all your databases, so if you delete or change any content unintentionally, we can swiftly recover it.

InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting

If you select a virtual private server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB database storage engine will be included in the software bundle that will be installed on your server before we hand it over to you. You will not have to set up anything manually and you will be able to enable and run any PHP script-powered software application that needs InnoDB once your VPS is ready, which takes no more than sixty minutes after the order submission process itself. Several engines are offered, so every time you create a MySQL database via the Hepsia Control Panel, a particular engine will be activated when the app activation begins and our system will automatically detect the engine that is required by the app in question. If you need to use MyISAM, for example, you won’t need to do anything different from installing the preferred app, whether manually or using our application installer tool.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you purchase a new dedicated server, you will be able to pick any of the 3 Control Panels that we offer – DirectAdmin, cPanel and Hepsia. Each dedicated server ordered with Hepsia comes with InnoDB pre-installed, so you will not need to install this database engine manually to be able to use PHP script-driven apps 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 large-scale sites, it’s pretty possible that you will use InnoDB. You’ll be able to use other engines as well, so in case a certain application requires MyISAM instead of InnoDB, you will not encounter any problem while running it. The engine that will be used will be automatically detected as soon as the app installation commences, so you will not need to edit any settings manually at any time.
