InnoDB is a popular storage engine for the MySQL database management system. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has many strengths that make it the preferred engine for plenty of PHP-powered web applications, such as Joomla and Magento, which have switched to InnoDB permanently. For example, adding immense data volumes will be faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only a single database row to complete a specific operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable applications. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the data is tackled. Put simply, importing new or updating existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back if a given problem appears in the meantime, which is why the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.

InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting

While InnoDB is either not available or a paid upgrade with many web hosts, it’s an essential part of the standard set of features that we are offering with our cloud website hosting packages. In case you wish to use a script-driven app that requires InnoDB particularly, in order to be activated and to work properly, you won’t have to deal with any obstacles because the storage engine is available on our in-house built cloud web hosting platform. Regardless of whether you set up a brand new MySQL database and activate an app manually or use our one-click application installer software instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our system as the default engine if the given application requires it instead of MyISAM. In addition to the incredible database failure recovery that InnoDB is offering, we also perform daily database backups, so that we can quickly restore any MySQL database in your shared hosting account.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting by default, so the moment you buy a new account, you can move on and install any script-driven software app that requires this particular storage engine. Several engines are pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so when you set up a brand new MySQL database and start installing an application manually, or opt to use the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated application installer tool, the engine for the database will be picked on the basis of the prerequisites of the particular app. This will permit you to install and manage InnoDB-specific applications without coming across any obstacle and without the need to modify any settings in your account. To be on the safe side, we’ll always have a 1-week-old backup of all your databases, so if you delete or edit any content unintentionally, we can easily restore it.

The system will automatically recognize the engine that the particular application requires and will set it for the specific MySQL database, so the installation will proceed flawlessly and the app can enter its content into that database.

Any dedicated server ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-installed, so you won’t need to add this MySQL storage engine manually so as to be able to manage open-source script-driven applications that require it. InnoDB is used by scalable applications and since a dedicated server will give you all the system resources that you need to manage very large sites, it’s rather possible that you’ll resort to InnoDB. You’ll be able to use other engines too, so if a given app needs MyISAM rather than InnoDB, you will not have any complication while managing it. The engine that will be used will be automatically recognized as soon as the app installation commences, so you won’t need to configure any setting manually whatsoever.
