InnoDB is a popular database engine for the MySQL DBMS. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got a lot of upsides which make it the preferred engine for lots of open-source script-powered software apps, including Joomla and Magento, which have shifted over to InnoDB for good. For instance, adding large volumes of data will be much faster with InnoDB, as it locks only one database row to carry out a given task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable applications. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the info is treated. To put it simply, appending new or modifying existent data will either be entirely completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back if some issue occurs during the process, therefore the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.

InnoDB in Web Hosting

You will be able to run any PHP-powered app that needs InnoDB if you’ve got a web hosting with our company, as the database engine is available on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform by default. Throughout the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will proceed impeccably if this engine is required. You can install apps which need the MyISAM engine without any impediments as well and, again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you won’t have to modify any setting manually at any moment. In addition, we’ll also create regular backups of all the MySQL databases that you have in your shared account, so in case you erase or overwrite anything, we can quickly get it back to the way it was on any of the previous seven days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you set up a brand new MySQL database through the hosting Control Panel provided with all our semi-dedicated server accounts and you begin installing a PHP script-driven application either manually or using our one-click application installer tool, the storage engine for the database will be selected automatically based on the given app’s requirements. As InnoDB is present on the cloud hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated account will be set up, it will be set as the default engine for any application that requires it without any manual action needed on your end at any point. To avoid any chance of losing info if you update an app or if you delete a database by mistake, we’ll carry out backups of all your MySQL databases each day, so if something goes wrong, we can rescue your data.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

When you buy a VPS server from our company, you will be able to take full advantage of our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel to manage your content. A Hepsia-managed VPS will permit you to run any script-based app which requires InnoDB, as the MySQL database storage engine is included in the software package that will be installed on the server during its creation. When you set up a brand-new MySQL database through the hosting Control Panel, you will just need to start installing an application – manually or using our app installer tool. InnoDB will be set as the default engine if the app in question requires it, so you won’t have to do anything else in your VPS account. Similarly, if a certain app requires MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this specific MySQL database.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

Our Hepsia Control Panel is one of the features which you can pick on the order form when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. As this is the most powerful type of hosting, it’s quite likely that you will manage very popular websites that will draw plenty of visitors, and since InnoDB is one of the very best options for such websites, we’ll install it along with all the other software applications that are available with a Hepsia-equipped server. When you set up a brand new MySQL database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any active storage engine till you start installing an open-source script, whether manually through your browser or using the automatic script installer tool that is integrated into the hosting Control Panel. The required engine will be automatically detected and will be assigned to the database in question, so you can install scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without running into any obstacle.
