InnoDB is a popular database engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has lots of strengths which make it the preferred engine for lots of script-powered software apps, including Joomla and Magento, which have moved to InnoDB permanently. For instance, adding enormous data volumes will be much faster with InnoDB, as it locks only a single row to complete a specific operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable applications. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is treated. Put simply, importing new or updating existent data will either be entirely completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back if a given problem shows up in the meantime, which means that the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Shared Website Hosting

While InnoDB is either a paid upgrade or it is not available at all with many web hosting providers, it’s an integral part of the standard set of features that we are offering with our shared website hosting plans. If you want to make use of a PHP script-powered app that needs InnoDB specifically, in order to be installed and to operate correctly, you will not experience any obstacles since the database storage engine is available on our custom-built cloud hosting platform. Regardless of whether you set up a brand new database and install an app manually or take advantage of our single-click app installer instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the specific application needs it rather than MyISAM. In addition to the excellent database crash recovery that InnoDB offers, we also generate daily database backups, so we can easily recover any MySQL database in your shared account.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers include InnoDB and you will be able to use all the features offered by this MySQL database engine with any PHP script-powered app that requires it. InnoDB is among the engines that are available on our cloud hosting platform, so the one that will be selected depends on the requirements of the specific application. You will not need to do anything manually in order to enable InnoDB, because it will be set as the default engine when you install an app – whether manually or using our 1-click app installer. To avoid any risk, we will create regular backups of all your databases, so if anything goes wrong following an upgrade or if you delete some content by mistake, we will be able to restore the database the way it was on any of the past seven days.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is one of the options which you can pick on the server configuration page when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. As this is the most powerful kind of web hosting, it is pretty likely that you will manage very popular Internet sites that will draw many visitors, and since InnoDB is one of the best choices for such websites, we will install it together with all the other software applications that come with a Hepsia-equipped server. If you set up a new MySQL database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any active database storage engine until you begin installing an open-source script, whether manually via your web browser or using the automatic script installer tool that is available in the Control Panel. The necessary engine will be detected and will be assigned to the database in question, so you can activate scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without having to deal with any complication.
