InnoDB is a popular database storage engine for MySQL. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got a number of advantages that have made it the engine of choice for a lot of PHP script-driven web applications, including Magento and Joomla, which have shifted over to InnoDB for good. For example, importing large data volumes will be faster with InnoDB, as it locks only a single row to complete a task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable applications. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the info is treated. In simpler words, importing new or modifying existent data will either be entirely completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back in case a certain problem shows up during the process, which is why the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
You can run any open-source script-powered web app that requires InnoDB in case you’ve got a Linux cloud package with us, as the MySQL database engine is present on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform by default. During the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will proceed flawlessly if this engine is needed. You can run apps which use the MyISAM engine without any difficulties as well and, again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you will not have to modify any setting manually at any time. Furthermore, we will also generate regular backups of all the databases that you have in the shared web hosting account, so if you delete or overwrite anything, we can swiftly get it back to the way it was on any of the previous seven days.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
InnoDB is available with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages by default, so the moment you obtain a new account, you can go ahead and install any PHP script-driven software application that needs this particular database storage engine. A number of engines are installed on our cloud platform, so when you create a new MySQL database and begin installing an application manually, or decide to use the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated application installer tool, the engine for the database will be set depending on the prerequisites of the particular application. This will allow you to install and manage InnoDB-specific apps without having to deal with any obstacle and without needing to update any settings in your account. To be on the safe side, we’ll always have a seven-day-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you erase or change any content by mistake, we can swiftly rescue it.
InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting
InnoDB is included as standard with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is an essential part of the standard software package that we install on all Hepsia-equipped dedicated servers, so as soon as your machine is ready, you will be able to sign in and to activate a various open-source script-powered web app that needs this particular storage engine. If you create a new database through the Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine till you begin installing an app. Once the app setup wizard begins inserting information into the database, the engine will be set automatically depending on the requirements of the specific application, so you can use both MyISAM and InnoDB without the need to select either of them explicitly at any point. Therefore, you can use a large variety of apps for your sites.
