InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has plenty of strengths which make it the engine of choice for numerous open-source script-based apps, including Magento and Joomla, which have switched over to InnoDB permanently. For example, adding immense volumes of data will be faster with InnoDB, because it locks only one database row to accomplish a certain operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the data is handled. In simpler words, appending new or editing existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be annulled and the operation will be rolled back in case any problem shows up in the meantime, which is why the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.

InnoDB in Hosting

Every script-powered web application that requires InnoDB will function flawlessly on our advanced cloud platform and the MySQL database storage engine is offered with all our hosting packages. Whenever you create a MySQL database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation is initiated, the engine that the database will make use of will be selected in accordance with the app’s prerequisites without having to update any setting in your web hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically for any app that requires this particular engine and you will be able to take advantage of its full capacity. We will carry out daily backups of your content, so if you unintentionally remove a MySQL database that is important to you or you overwrite a specific part of it, we’ll be able to restore the database the way it was only several hours ago.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you create a new MySQL database through the hosting Control Panel offered with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you start installing a script-based software application either manually or using our single-click application installer tool, the storage engine for the database will be picked automatically based on the prerequisites of the specific app. As InnoDB is available on the cloud platform where your new semi-dedicated hosting account will be created, it will be set as the default engine for any application that needs it without any manual intervention needed on your end at any time. To prevent any risk of losing info if you update an application or if you erase a database by accident, we’ll carry out backups of all your databases every day, so if anything happens, we can recover your data.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

If you pick a VPS server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, the InnoDB database storage engine will be an indivisible part of the standard software package that will be pre-installed on your Virtual Private Server before we give it to you. You will not have to set up anything manually and you will be able to install and run any open-source script-driven web application that requires InnoDB once your VPS server is set up, which takes no more than 60 minutes after the order submission itself. A few engines are available, so anytime you set up a MySQL database via the Hepsia Control Panel, a particular engine will be selected once the app activation process begins and our system will automatically recognize the engine that is required by the application in question. In case you need to use MyISAM, for instance, you will not need to do anything different from installing the application of your preference, whether manually or using our app installer tool.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

Our Hepsia Control Panel is one of the options that you can select on the server configuration page when you purchase a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful type of website hosting, it’s pretty likely that you will run popular websites that will draw plenty of visitors, and since InnoDB is one of the very best options for such websites, we will enable it along with all the other software applications that are offered with a Hepsia-managed server. When you set up a brand new MySQL database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any activated MySQL storage engine until you start installing an open-source PHP script, whether manually through your Internet browser or using the automatic script installer tool that is included in the Control Panel. The necessary engine will be automatically detected and will be set for that database, so you can use scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without having any difficulty.
