InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for the MySQL database management system. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has a number of pluses that make it the preferred engine for numerous script-powered web apps, among them Magento and Joomla, which have moved to InnoDB permanently. For instance, adding large volumes of data will be much faster with InnoDB, as it locks only a single database row to perform a specific operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the info is tackled. To put it simply, importing new or editing existing data will either be fully completed, or will be annulled and the operation will be rolled back if any problem occurs during the process, which is why the content that remains in the database will not be lost.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
While InnoDB is either not offered or it is a paid upgrade with many other web hosts, it is part of the standard set of features that we offer with our cloud hosting plans. If you wish to use a PHP-powered web application that needs InnoDB in particular, in order to be installed and to work correctly, you won’t face any difficulties because the InnoDB database engine is available on our custom-developed cloud Internet hosting platform. Irrespective of whether you create a brand-new database and install an application manually or take advantage of our one-click application installer software tool, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the specific application requires it instead of MyISAM. In addition to the outstanding database crash recovery offered by InnoDB, we also generate regular database backups, so we can easily restore any database in your shared web hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated hosting plans support InnoDB and you will be able to get the most out of all the options offered by this storage engine with any script-powered application that requires it. InnoDB is one of the engines that are available on our cloud hosting platform, so the one that will be selected depends on the prerequisites of the particular application. You won’t have to do anything manually in order to enable InnoDB, as it will be set as the default engine when you install an application – whether manually or using our 1-click application installer tool. To be on the safe side, we will keep regular MySQL database backups, so if something goes wrong after an upgrade or if you erase some content unintentionally, we will be able to restore your database the way it was on any of the past 7 days.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
If you select a VPS server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, the InnoDB database storage engine will be an indivisible part of the software bundle that will be installed on your VPS server before we give it to you. You will not need to activate anything manually and you will be able to install and use any PHP-based app that requires InnoDB when your VPS server is up and running, which takes no more than one hour after the order submission process itself. A few engines are available, so every time you create a MySQL database via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a particular engine will be picked when the app installation process starts and our system will automatically detect the engine that is required by the application in question. If you need MyISAM, for example, you won’t need to do anything different than installing the preferred app, whether manually or using our application installer.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
InnoDB is included by default with all Linux dedicated web hosting plans ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is included in the standard software bundle that we install on all Hepsia-equipped servers, so as soon as your physical machine is up and running, you’ll be able to log in and to install any script-driven software app that needs this database storage engine. If you set up a new database via the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine until you start installing an app. As soon as the app configuration wizard starts inserting information into the database, the engine will be picked automatically in accordance with the requirements of the app in question, so you can run both MyISAM and InnoDB without the need to select either of them specifically at any point. In this way, you can use a vast selection of apps for your sites.
