InnoDB is a very popular database engine for the MySQL database management system. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has numerous pluses which make it the engine of choice for plenty of script-based software applications, including Joomla and Magento, which have moved to InnoDB for good. For instance, importing large data volumes will be much faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only one row to accomplish a certain task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable applications. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the data is handled. In simpler words, importing new or modifying existing data will either be entirely completed, or will be annulled and the operation will be rolled back in case some issue shows up during the process, which is why the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to install any PHP-powered software app that needs InnoDB in case you’ve got a cloud hosting plan with our company, as the MySQL storage engine is present on our advanced cloud web hosting platform by default. Throughout the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will continue flawlessly in case this engine is needed. You can activate apps that use the MyISAM engine without any impediments as well and, once again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you won’t have to configure anything manually at any time. In addition, we will also generate daily backups of all the MySQL databases that you have in the shared web hosting account, so if you erase or overwrite anything, we can easily get it back to the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated hosting plans include InnoDB and you’ll be able to make use of all the options offered by this database engine with any PHP-powered software app that needs it. It is among the engines that are available on our cloud website hosting platform, so the one that will be used depends on the prerequisites of the application in question. You will not need to do anything manually to enable InnoDB, because it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an app – whether manually or using our 1-click application installer tool. To avoid any risk, we’ll create regular backups of all your databases, so if something goes wrong after some update or if you erase some data unintentionally, we’ll be able to restore the database the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

InnoDB is included by default with all dedicated web hosting plans ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It is included in the software bundle that will be pre-installed on all Hepsia-managed dedicated servers, so as soon as your machine is set up, you’ll be able to log in and to install any type of open-source script-powered software app that requires this particular MySQL database engine. If you set up a new database through the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine until you start installing an app. Once the app activation wizard starts inserting information into the newly created database, the engine will be set automatically based on the requirements of the particular application, so you can run both InnoDB and MyISAM without having to select either one specifically at any time. Therefore, you can use a wide variety of apps for your websites.
