InnoDB is a popular database storage engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has numerous advantages that make it the preferred engine for lots of open-source script-powered applications, such as Joomla and Magento, which have switched over to InnoDB for good. For instance, importing enormous amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, since it locks only one database row to complete a specific operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the information is treated. To put it simply, importing new or updating existent data will either be entirely completed, or will be annulled and the operation will be rolled back if a certain problem occurs in the meantime, which is why the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
You can run any script-powered web application that needs InnoDB in case you have a cloud plan with us, as the MySQL database storage engine is present on our advanced cloud website hosting platform as standard. During the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will proceed impeccably if this engine is needed. You can activate apps which use the MyISAM engine without having to deal with any difficulty as well and, once again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you will not need to update any setting manually at any point. What’s more, we will also generate daily backups of all the MySQL databases that you’ve got in your shared account, so in case you delete or overwrite something, we can swiftly restore it the way it was on any of the past seven days.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
InnoDB comes with each of our semi-dedicated plans by default, so once you purchase a new account, you can move on and install any open-source script-powered software app that requires this particular database storage engine. A number of engines are installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so when you create a brand new database and start installing an app manually, or opt to use the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated app installer tool, the engine for the database will be picked on the basis of the requirements of the given app. This will permit you to activate and manage InnoDB-specific applications without having to deal with any difficulty and without the need to edit any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To take no chances, we will always have a seven-day-old backup of all your databases, so if you delete or edit any content by mistake, we can quickly recover it.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
All VPS hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB already installed, so you’ll be able to make use of any open-source script-powered app that requires this particular storage engine without configuring anything manually. You can pick Hepsia on the VPS order form and your new server will be ready within 60 minutes, so you can sign in and start creating your websites right away. Once you set up a brand new MySQL database and begin the app installation process, our system will pick the engine for this MySQL database automatically. Thus, you can use various apps at the same time without updating anything on the VPS server. You can have a WordPress-powered personal journal that makes use of MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento-driven Internet shop that uses InnoDB, for example.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
When you get a new dedicated server, you’ll be able to choose any of the 3 hosting Control Panels offered by our company – Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Any server ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-installed, so you will not have to enable this database engine manually in order to be able to use PHP-powered web applications that need it. InnoDB is used by scalable apps and since a dedicated server will offer you all the resources that you need to manage large-size sites, it’s pretty possible that you will use InnoDB. You will be able to make use of other engines too, so in case a particular application requires MyISAM rather than InnoDB, you will not have any difficulty while running it. The engine that will be used will be automatically recognized as soon as the app installation procedure starts, so you won’t have to alter any setting manually at any moment.
