InnoDB is a popular database storage engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got numerous strong sides which make it the preferred engine for plenty of script-powered apps, such as Joomla and Magento, which have switched over to InnoDB permanently. For instance, importing large data volumes will be faster with InnoDB, because it locks only a single row to complete a certain task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the data is handled. Simply put, appending new or editing existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be aborted and the procedure will be rolled back in case some problem occurs during the process, therefore the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.

InnoDB in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of any script-powered software application that needs InnoDB if you have a shared plan with our company, as the MySQL storage engine is available on our advanced cloud hosting platform as standard. Throughout the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will continue impeccably in case this engine is required. You can run apps that require the MyISAM engine without having to deal with any difficulty as well and, again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you will not need to change any setting manually at any moment. What’s more, we will also carry out regular backups of all the databases that you have in your shared account, so if you erase or overwrite something, we can quickly get it back to the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

InnoDB comes with all our semi-dedicated plans by default, so once you create a new account, you can go on and install any script-driven web application that requires this MySQL database engine. A number of engines are installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so when you set up a brand-new MySQL database and begin installing an app manually, or decide to make use of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated application installer tool, the engine for the database will be selected based on the concrete app’s requirements. This will allow you to activate and run InnoDB-specific applications without having to cope with any impediment and without modifying any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To avoid any risk, we’ll always have a 1-week-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you remove or change any content by mistake, we can easily restore it.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is among the features which you can choose on the order form when you buy a dedicated server from our company. Since this is the most powerful type of web hosting, it’s quite likely that you’ll run highly popular websites that will draw lots of visitors, and since InnoDB is one of the best choices for such sites, we’ll activate it together with all the other software applications that are available with a Hepsia-equipped dedicated server. If you create a new MySQL database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any activated MySQL database storage engine until you begin installing an open-source script, whether manually through your Internet browser or using the automatic scripts installation tool that is available in the hosting Control Panel. The required engine will be detected and will be assigned to the database in question, so you can make use of scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without having to deal with any problem.
