InnoDB is a very popular database storage engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got a number of advantages that have made it the preferred engine for lots of PHP-driven web apps, among them Magento and Joomla™, which have moved to InnoDB permanently. For instance, importing immense volumes of data will be much faster with InnoDB, since it locks only one database row to perform a task, not the entire table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is tackled. In simpler words, importing new or modifying existent data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be aborted and the operation will be rolled back in case some issue appears during the process, therefore the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.
InnoDB in Shared Hosting
While InnoDB is either not available or a paid upgrade with other website hosting service providers, it is included in the standard set of features offered with our shared hosting
packages. If you would like to use an open-source script-driven application that requires InnoDB in particular, in order to be installed and to work correctly, you won’t come across any problems as the InnoDB storage engine is available on our in-house built cloud Internet hosting platform. Regardless of whether you set up a brand-new MySQL database and activate an application manually or make use of our single-click app installer software instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the given application needs InnoDB instead of MyISAM. Besides the outstanding database failure recovery offered by InnoDB, we also carry out daily backups of all databases, so that we can easily recover any MySQL database in your shared account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
support InnoDB and you’ll be able to take advantage of all the options offered by this MySQL database storage engine with any open-source script-powered application that needs it. InnoDB is among the engines that we have on our cloud web hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the requirements of the app in question. You won’t have to do anything manually to activate InnoDB, as it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an app – whether manually or using our 1-click app installer. To avoid any risk, we will maintain regular database backups, so if something goes wrong after some update or if you erase some content accidentally, we’ll be able to restore the database the way it was on any of the past 7 days.
InnoDB in VPS Hosting
If our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is selected during the registration process for your new Linux VPS hosting packages
, InnoDB will be activated on the server together with other required pieces of software, so you will not have to do anything if you decide to install PHP-driven applications that need this MySQL storage engine. The default MySQL engine – MyISAM, will be activated as well. You can set up a brand new database and start the app installation manually or through our one-click installer. The system will recognize which engine the particular application requires and will set it for the specific MySQL database, so the installation will proceed flawlessly and the application can dump its content in that database. Therefore, you can manage apps with various requirements with regard to the MySQL engine without making any changes on your Virtual Private Server.
InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting
Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is one of the options which you can select on the order form when you buy a dedicated server
from our company. As this is the most powerful type of website hosting, it is very likely that you’ll run highly popular websites that will draw many visitors, and since InnoDB is one of the very best choices for such websites, we will install it together with all the other software apps that are offered with a Hepsia-managed server. When you set up a new MySQL database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any active MySQL database storage engine until you begin installing an open-source script, whether manually via your web browser or using the automatic script installer that is integrated into the Control Panel. The necessary engine will be recognized and will be assigned to that database, so you can install scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without the need to deal with any problem.
