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 make it the engine of choice for many open-source script-based software applications, among them Magento and Joomla, which have switched over to InnoDB for good. For instance, adding huge data volumes will be faster with InnoDB, because it locks only one database row to complete a task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is treated. To put it simply, importing new or updating existent data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be annulled and the operation will be rolled back in case a given issue shows up during the process, therefore the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

You can run any PHP script-based software app that requires InnoDB in case you’ve got a Linux cloud package with our company, as the storage engine is present on our advanced cloud web hosting platform by default. During the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will continue impeccably if this engine is needed. You can activate apps that need the MyISAM engine without any impediments as well and, once again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you will not need to edit any setting manually at any moment. On top of that, we’ll also carry out daily backups of all the databases that you have in your shared account, so if you erase or overwrite anything, we can swiftly get it back to the way it was on any of the previous seven days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use a PHP script-based web application that requires InnoDB with any of our semi-dedicated server plans, due to the fact that all the accounts are set up on our advanced cloud web hosting platform where the MySQL storage engine is installed. A new database can be set up in two ways – manually through the Database Manager section of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, or automatically – in case you make use of our 1-click application installer. Either way, the needed engine will be selected automatically as soon as the installation of the application begins, so you will not have to edit anything manually, no matter if the application needs InnoDB or the more commonly used MyISAM. Furthermore, we’ll always be able to recover any of your databases in case you accidentally erase one, as we create a couple of backups every day, each of which is preserved for 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

When you buy a virtual private server from our company, you will be able to make use of our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel to manage your content. A Hepsia-managed VPS will allow you to use any script-driven app which requires InnoDB, as this particular MySQL database storage engine is included in the standard software package that will be pre-installed on the server during its creation. When you create a brand new database using the hosting Control Panel, you will simply have to begin installing an app – manually or using our app installer. InnoDB will be set as the default engine if the app in question needs it, so you won’t have to do anything else in your account. Equivalently, if a certain application needs MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this specific MySQL database.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you obtain a new dedicated server, you will be able to choose any of the three hosting Control Panels offered by us – Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Any server ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-installed, so you will not have to install this MySQL database storage engine manually to be able to use PHP script-driven software apps that require it. InnoDB is used for scalable apps and since a dedicated server will supply you with all the system resources that you require in order to manage large-size Internet sites, it is very likely that you’ll use InnoDB. You will be able to make use of other engines too, so in case a specific app needs MyISAM instead of InnoDB, you won’t experience any complication while running it. The engine that will be used will be recognized automatically as soon as the app installation begins, so you will not need to fine-tune any settings manually whatsoever.
