InnoDB is a popular database storage engine for the MySQL database management system. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got plenty of upsides which have made it the engine of choice for many open-source script-driven software apps, such as Magento and Joomla, which have moved to InnoDB for good. For example, adding huge volumes of data will be much faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only a single row to perform a specific operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the data is handled. Put simply, importing new or editing existent data will either be entirely completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back if any problem occurs in the meantime, so the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.
InnoDB in Shared Web Hosting
Any script-driven web app that requires InnoDB will function flawlessly on our innovative cloud website hosting platform and the MySQL database engine is available with all our shared web hosting packages. Every time you create a MySQL database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation process is started, the engine that the database will make use of will be selected based on the app’s specifications without having to change any setting in your shared hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically for any app that requires this specific engine and you’ll be able to make the most of its full potential. We will store daily content backups, so if you unintentionally erase a MySQL database that is important to you or you overwrite some part of it, we’ll be able to restore everything the way it was only a couple of hours ago.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated packages support InnoDB and you will be able to use all the options offered by this MySQL database engine with any open-source script-driven web app that requires it. It’s one of the engines that are available on our cloud hosting platform, so the one that will be selected depends on the requirements of the specific app. You will not have to do anything manually to enable InnoDB, since it will be set as the default engine when you install an app – whether manually or using our one-click application installer. To be on the safe side, we’ll create daily backups of all your MySQL databases, so if anything goes wrong after some update or if you delete some data by mistake, we will be able to restore the database the way it was on any of the past seven days.
InnoDB in VPS Hosting
If our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is selected during the registration process for your new Linux VPS hosting packages , InnoDB will be installed on the server together with other necessary pieces of software, so you won’t need to do anything if you choose to install PHP script-powered apps that need this MySQL database engine. The default MySQL engine – MyISAM, will be activated as well. You can set up a brand-new database and begin installing the application manually or using our single-click installer tool. The system will automatically recognize the engine that the particular application requires and will assign it to the specific database, so the installation process will proceed impeccably and the app can import its content into that database. In this way, you can activate apps with different prerequisites concerning the MySQL engine without the need to make any modifications on your server.
InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting
Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the options that you can select on the server configuration page when you buy a dedicated server from our company. Since this is the most powerful kind of hosting, it is very likely that you’ll manage highly popular websites that will attract plenty of visitors, and since InnoDB is one of the best options for such sites, we will install it along with all the other software applications that come with a Hepsia-equipped server. If you set up a new database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any activated MySQL storage engine until you begin installing a script, whether manually via your Internet browser or using the automatic script installer tool that is available in the hosting Control Panel. The necessary engine will be recognized automatically and will be assigned to the database in question, so you can use scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without coming across any obstacle.
