InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for the MySQL database management system. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got plenty of upsides that make it the preferred engine for many open-source script-based web applications, such as Joomla and Magento, which have shifted over to InnoDB permanently. For instance, importing enormous data volumes will be faster with InnoDB, as it locks only a single database row to complete a task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the info is tackled. To put it simply, adding new or updating existing data will either be entirely completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back in case some problem occurs during the process, which means that the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.

InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting

While InnoDB is either not offered or it is a paid upgrade with many hosting companies, it’s an integral part of the default set of services offered with our cloud website hosting plans. If you’d like to make use of an open-source script-based web app that needs InnoDB specifically, in order to be installed and to work correctly, you won’t have any problems as the MySQL database engine is available on our in-house built cloud hosting platform. Irrespective of whether you create a brand new database and activate an app manually or take advantage of our single-click application installer software tool, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our system as the default engine if the app needs it rather than MyISAM. Besides the incredible database failure recovery offered by InnoDB, we also keep regular backups of all databases, so that we can easily restore any database in your shared account.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

InnoDB is offered with all our Linux semi-dedicated packages by default, so once you buy a new semi-dedicated account, you can move on and install any PHP-powered web app that needs this particular MySQL database storage engine. Several engines are installed on our cloud platform, so when you set up a brand new database and begin installing an application manually, or opt to make use of the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated app installer, the engine for the database will be selected depending on the prerequisites of the application in question. This will permit you to activate and run InnoDB-specific applications without any impediments and without editing any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To be on the safe side, we’ll always have a 1-week-old backup of all your databases, so if you delete or change any content by accident, we can quickly rescue it.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel include a software package that is pre-activated and among everything else, you will get the InnoDB database storage engine, so you will not need to install it manually in case you’d like to use open-source scripts that require it. All it takes to run such a script is to set up a new MySQL database and to initiate the installation process – once the installation wizard acquires access to the database and starts dumping content in it, InnoDB will be set as the default engine for this database provided that it is the one required by the particular script. You’ll also be able to run scripts that need MyISAM – the other widely used MySQL engine, so you won’t need to configure any settings on the dedicated server. This will permit you to install a variety of scripts on a single server and to use the latter to its fullest capabilities.
