InnoDB is a popular storage engine for the MySQL DBMS. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has lots of strong sides that have made it the engine of choice for numerous PHP script-based web applications, including Magento and Joomla, which have switched to InnoDB for good. For example, importing large amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, since it locks only one database row to execute a task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the information is handled. In simpler words, importing new or modifying existing data will either be entirely completed, or will be aborted and the operation will be rolled back in case some problem occurs in the meantime, so the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
InnoDB is offered with all our Linux cloud hosting packages by default, not as a paid upgrade or upon request, so you will be able to activate and manage any script-powered web application which needs the MySQL database storage engine without any obstacles as soon as you order your shared website hosting account. InnoDB will be pre-selected as the default engine for a given MySQL database during the app activation process, no matter if you take advantage of our 1-click installation tool or create the database and set up the app manually, provided that the app requires InnoDB instead of the more popular MyISAM engine. We’ll perform daily MySQL database backups, so you can be certain that you will never lose any content if you delete a database unintentionally or you overwrite some essential info – you simply need to inform us and we will restore your content back to normal.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support InnoDB and you will be able to make use of all the features offered by this MySQL database engine with any PHP-driven web app that requires it. It is one of the engines that are available on our cloud website hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the particular app’s requirements. You will not have to do anything manually to activate InnoDB, since it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an application – whether manually or using our single-click app installer tool. To avoid any risk, we will store daily backups of all your MySQL databases, so if something goes wrong after some update or if you erase some data by mistake, we’ll be able to restore the database the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.
InnoDB in VPS Hosting
If you pick a virtual private server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, the InnoDB database engine will be an integral part of the standard software bundle that will be pre-installed on your server before we hand it over to you. You won’t need to set up anything manually and you’ll be able to install and use any script-driven web application that needs InnoDB when your Virtual Private Server is up and running, which takes no more than one hour after the order process itself. A number of engines are available, so anytime you create a database using the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a specific engine will be activated when the app installation process commences and our system will detect which engine is required by the app in question. If you need to use MyISAM, for example, you will not need to do anything different than installing the application of your preference, whether manually or using our application installer tool.
InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting
Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is among the options that you can select on the order page when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. As this is the most powerful kind of website hosting, it’s rather likely that you’ll manage very popular sites that will attract a lot of visitors, and since InnoDB is among the very best choices for such Internet sites, we’ll activate it along with all the other software apps that are offered with a Hepsia-equipped server. If you create a new database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any active MySQL database engine till you begin installing a PHP script, whether manually via your web browser or using the automatic scripts installation tool that is integrated into the hosting Control Panel. The necessary engine will be automatically detected and will be assigned to the database in question, so you can use scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without needing to deal with any complication.
