InnoDB is a popular database engine for the MySQL DBMS. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has a number of strong sides that have made it the preferred engine for lots of open-source script-driven web applications, including Magento and Joomla, which have moved to InnoDB permanently. For example, importing enormous volumes of data will be much faster with InnoDB, because it locks only a single row to accomplish an operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable applications. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the data is handled. To put it simply, appending new or updating existing data will either be fully completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back if any issue shows up during the process, hence the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Website Hosting

You will be able to install any script-based web application that needs InnoDB if you have a Linux website hosting package with us, as the MySQL database storage engine is available on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform as standard. Throughout the app installation – 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 which need the MyISAM engine without the need to deal with any problem as well and, again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you won’t need to change any setting manually at any moment. In addition, we’ll also generate daily backups of all the MySQL databases that you have in your shared web hosting account, so in case you delete or overwrite anything, we can quickly restore it the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

InnoDB is included with each of our Linux semi-dedicated packages by default, so the moment you purchase a new semi-dedicated account, you can go ahead and install any PHP script-driven app that requires this MySQL database storage engine. A number of engines are pre-installed on our cloud platform, so when you create a brand new MySQL database and start installing an application manually, or decide to take advantage of the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated app installer tool, the engine for the database will be selected depending on the particular app’s prerequisites. This will allow you to install and run InnoDB-specific apps without the need to deal with any complication and without the need to modify any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To take no chances, we’ll always have a 7-day-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you delete or alter any content unintentionally, we can quickly rescue it.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

If you get a virtual private server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB database engine will be part of the software bundle that will be pre-installed on your Virtual Private Server before we give it to you. You won’t need to set up anything manually and you will be able to enable and run any open-source script-driven software app that needs InnoDB when your VPS is ready, which takes no more than 1 hour after the order submission process itself. Several engines are offered, so every time you set up a MySQL database via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a specific engine will be activated once the app activation process starts and our system will detect the engine that is required by the application in question. In case you need MyISAM, for instance, you won’t have to do anything different from installing the desired application, whether manually or using our app installer.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

InnoDB comes by default with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It’s an essential part of the software bundle that will be installed on all Hepsia-equipped dedicated servers, so once your machine is assembled, you’ll be able to sign in and to install any type of open-source script-powered application that needs this particular storage engine. If you create a new database through the Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine until you begin installing an application. Once the app activation wizard starts importing data into the database, the engine will be chosen automatically on the basis of the requirements of the app in question, so you can run both MyISAM and InnoDB without selecting either one explicitly at any time. Therefore, you can make use of a broad collection of apps for your Internet sites.
