InnoDB is a popular storage engine for the MySQL database management system. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has a number of advantages that have made it the engine of choice for many open-source script-based web applications, among them Magento and Joomla, which have switched over to InnoDB for good. For instance, importing immense data volumes will be faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only one row to accomplish a certain operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is handled. Put simply, appending new or editing existing data will either be fully completed, or will be annulled and the operation will be rolled back if any issue appears during the process, which is why the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.
InnoDB in Shared Web Hosting
Any PHP-based software app that requires InnoDB will run flawlessly on our advanced cloud hosting platform and the MySQL storage engine is available with all our shared web hosting plans. Every time you create a MySQL database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation process is initiated, the engine that the database will make use of will be selected in accordance with the app’s specifications without the need to modify any setting in your hosting account. InnoDB will be chosen automatically for any app that requires this specific engine and you’ll be able to get the most out of its full capacity. We will keep daily content backups, so if you unintentionally delete a database that is important to you or you overwrite certain parts of it, we will be able to restore the database the way it was just several hours ago.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated plans come with InnoDB and you will be able to make the most of all the features of this database storage engine with any script-powered web application that needs it. It’s among the engines that we have on our cloud hosting platform, so the one that will be used depends on the particular app’s requirements. You will not have to do anything manually in order to enable InnoDB, because it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an application – whether manually or using our one-click application installer tool. To be on the safe side, we will carry out daily database backups, so if something goes wrong following some update or if you delete some content accidentally, we’ll be able to get the database back to the way it was on any of the previous seven days.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
All VPS web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB already activated, so you’ll be able to take advantage of any script-based web app that needs this MySQL database engine without installing anything manually. You can select Hepsia on the VPS order page and your brand-new Virtual Private Server will be set up within 60 minutes, so you can log in and begin creating your Internet sites right away. Once you set up a brand new MySQL database and begin the app installation process, our system will select the engine for this MySQL database automatically. In this way, you can activate different applications at the same time without configuring anything on the VPS server. You can have a WordPress-based blog that uses the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-powered online shop that uses InnoDB, for example.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the features which you can pick on the server order page when you purchase a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful type of web hosting, it is quite likely that you will run highly popular Internet sites that will draw plenty of individuals, and since InnoDB is one of the very best options for such sites, we will enable it together with all the other software apps that are offered with a Hepsia-equipped server. When you set up a brand new database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any active MySQL storage engine until you begin installing a script, whether manually through your browser or using the automatic scripts installation tool that is available in the Control Panel. The required engine will be detected and will be set for the database in question, so you can use scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that need MyISAM, the default MySQL engine, without any obstacles.
