InnoDB is a popular database storage engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has numerous strong sides that make it the engine of choice for many open-source script-driven web applications, including Magento and Joomla, which have shifted over to InnoDB permanently. For example, adding large volumes of data will be much faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only one row to perform an operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the information is handled. Put simply, appending new or modifying existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be annulled and the procedure will be rolled back in case a given issue shows up during the process, thus the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

While InnoDB is either a paid upgrade or it is not available at all with many other hosting companies, it’s an integral part of the default set of features that we offer with our cloud hosting plans. If you wish to make use of a script-based app that requires InnoDB in particular, in order to be activated and to work properly, you won’t encounter any impediments since the MySQL database engine is available on our in-house built cloud website hosting platform. Irrespective of whether you set up a brand new MySQL database and activate an application manually or take advantage of our 1-click app installer software instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our system as the default engine if the given app needs InnoDB rather than MyISAM. In addition to the exceptional database failure recovery that InnoDB offers, we also make regular database backups, so we can quickly recover any MySQL database in your shared web hosting account.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

InnoDB is offered with all our Linux semi-dedicated servers by default, so the moment you create a new semi-dedicated account, you can go on and install any open-source script-powered web application that needs the storage engine. Several engines are installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so when you set up a brand new database and start installing an application manually, or decide to use the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated application installer, the engine for the database will be chosen depending on the requirements of the specific application. This will permit you to install and run InnoDB-specific apps without the need to deal with any problem and without modifying any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To be on the safe side, we will always have a seven-day-old backup of all your databases, so if you delete or change any content accidentally, we can swiftly restore it.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

In case our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is chosen during the signup process for a new VPS hosting plans , InnoDB will be installed on the Virtual Private Server along with other essential pieces of software, so you won’t have to do anything if you choose to use PHP script-based applications that require this MySQL database engine. The default MySQL engine, MyISAM, will be installed as well. You can set up a brand-new MySQL database and start installing the app manually or through our 1-click installer tool. The system will automatically detect which engine the particular application requires and will assign it to the specific MySQL database, so the installation process will continue impeccably and the app can insert its data into that database. Thus, you can use applications with different requirements with regard to the MySQL engine without the need to make any modifications on your VPS server.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

InnoDB is included by default with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is an integral part of the standard software package that we install on all Hepsia-equipped servers, so as soon as your physical machine is set up, you’ll be able to sign in and to install any PHP script-driven app that requires this particular MySQL database storage engine. If you create a new MySQL database via the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine until you begin installing an application. Once the app activation wizard begins inserting content into the database, the engine will be picked automatically depending on the requirements of the app in question, so you can run both MyISAM and InnoDB without selecting either of them explicitly at any point. Thus, you can make use of a huge selection of applications for your sites.
