InnoDB is a very popular database engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has many upsides that have made it the engine of choice for many open-source script-based software applications, such as Joomla and Magento, which have moved to InnoDB permanently. For instance, importing immense volumes of data will be faster with InnoDB, as it locks only one row to accomplish an operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the data is tackled. Simply put, adding new or editing existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be annulled and the procedure will be rolled back in case a given problem appears during the process, hence the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

Every script-powered application that requires InnoDB will run impeccably on our innovative cloud website hosting platform and the MySQL database storage engine is available with all our cloud hosting plans. Every time you create a database manually or our app installer tool creates one automatically and an app installation process is initiated, the engine that the database in question will make use of will be selected based on the app’s requirements without having to change any setting in your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically for any app that requires this specific engine and you will be able to make the most of its full potential. We will generate daily content backups, so in case you unintentionally remove a database that is important to you or you overwrite certain parts of it, we will be able to restore everything the way it was only a couple of hours earlier.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

InnoDB is included with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans by default, so the moment you obtain a new semi-dedicated account, you can go on and activate any PHP script-based web app that requires this MySQL database engine. Several engines are pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so when you create a brand new MySQL database and begin installing an app manually, or decide to take advantage of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated app installer tool, the engine for the database will be set on the basis of the concrete app’s requirements. This will allow you to activate and manage InnoDB-specific apps without any impediments and without configuring any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To avoid any risk, we will always keep a one-week-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you remove or alter any content by mistake, we can swiftly retrieve it.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

If you acquire a VPS server from our company, you’ll be able to use our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel to manage your web content. A Hepsia-equipped Virtual Private Server will permit you to run any script-powered app which needs InnoDB, as this database engine is an essential part of the default software bundle that will be pre-installed on your server during its setup. When you set up a brand new MySQL database using the Control Panel, you’ll simply need to start installing an app – manually or using our app installer tool. InnoDB will be set as the default engine on the condition that the app in question requires it, so you will not have to do anything else in your VPS account. Likewise, if a given app requires MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this concrete MySQL database.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

All Linux dedicated servers ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel include a software package that’s pre-installed and among everything else, you’ll get the InnoDB database storage engine, so you will not need to activate it manually in case you want to run scripts that require it. All it takes to use such a script is to create a new MySQL database and to initiate the installation – once the script configuration wizard receives access to the database and begins dumping data in it, InnoDB will be set as the default MySQL engine for this database as long as it is the one needed by the particular script. You’ll also be able to run scripts that require the other widely used MySQL engine, MyISAM, so you won’t have to configure any settings on the server. This will enable you to run a variety of scripts on one single physical server and to use the latter to its fullest capabilities.
