InnoDB is a popular database engine for the MySQL database management system. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got many advantages that have made it the engine of choice for lots of PHP-driven apps, including Magento and Joomla, which have switched to InnoDB for good. For example, importing enormous data volumes will be faster with InnoDB, since it locks only a single database row to complete a particular operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the info is tackled. Put simply, importing new or editing existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be aborted and the procedure will be rolled back if a given issue shows up in the meantime, thus the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.
InnoDB in Web Hosting
InnoDB is available with all our web hosting by default, not as a paid upgrade or upon request, so you’ll be able to install and run any script-powered software app which requires the MySQL storage engine without any obstacles once you activate your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be pre-selected as the default engine for a certain MySQL database during the app activation, no matter if you use our 1-click installer or create the database and install the app manually, on the condition that the app requires it instead of the more popular MyISAM engine. We will perform regular backups of all your MySQL databases, so you can be sure that you won’t ever lose any content if you erase a database accidentally or you overwrite some important info – you just need to alert us and we’ll restore your data back to normal.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated servers include InnoDB and you’ll be able to take advantage of all the options offered by this MySQL database engine with any PHP script-based application that needs it. It is among the engines that we have on our cloud hosting platform, so the one that will be used depends on the given app’s requirements. You will not have to do anything manually in order to enable InnoDB, since it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an application – whether manually or using our one-click app installer. To be on the safe side, we will store daily MySQL database backups, so if something goes wrong after some update or if you erase some data by mistake, we’ll be able to get your database back to the way it was on any of the past 7 days.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
If you acquire a VPS server from us, you’ll be able to take full advantage of our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel to manage your content. A Hepsia-managed Virtual Private Server will allow you to manage any script-powered application which needs InnoDB, as this MySQL database storage engine is part of the standard software package that will be pre-installed on your Virtual Private Server during its creation. When you set up a brand new database via the hosting Control Panel, you just have to start installing an application – manually or using our application installer. InnoDB will be set as the default engine on the condition that the app in question needs it, so you won’t need to do anything else in your account. Analogously, if a certain app needs MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this concrete MySQL database.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the options which you can pick on the order page when you buy a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful kind of web hosting, it is very likely that you will manage popular websites that will attract plenty of visitors, and since InnoDB is among the best choices for such websites, we will install it along with all the other software applications that come with a Hepsia-equipped dedicated server. When you create a brand-new database in your account, there won’t be any active storage engine till you start installing an open-source script, whether manually via your browser or using the automatic scripts installer that is integrated into the Control Panel. The needed engine will be automatically detected and will be set for that database, so you can make use of scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without having to deal with any impediment.
