InnoDB is a popular storage engine for MySQL. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got lots of upsides that have made it the engine of choice for numerous script-driven software applications, among them Magento and Joomla, which have switched to InnoDB permanently. For example, importing huge volumes of data will be faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only a single row to complete a specific task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is tackled. Put simply, appending new or updating existent data will either be fully completed, or will be aborted and the procedure will be rolled back if some problem shows up in the meantime, thus the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
Any PHP script-powered web app that requires InnoDB will function impeccably on our advanced cloud platform and the MySQL database engine is offered with all our cloud hosting plans. Every time you create a database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation process is initiated, the engine that the database in question will make use of will be selected based on the app’s requirements without having to edit any setting in your shared account. InnoDB will be picked automatically for any application that requires this specific engine and you will be able to make the most of its full capacity. We’ll make daily backups of your content, so if you accidentally erase a MySQL database that you need or you overwrite specific parts of it, we will be able to restore your content the way it was only a few hours ago.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated servers come with InnoDB and you can take full advantage of all the features offered by this database storage engine with any open-source script-powered web application that requires it. InnoDB is one of the engines that are available on our cloud platform, so the one that will be selected depends on the prerequisites of the respective app. You won’t have to do anything manually to enable InnoDB, as it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an app – whether manually or using our single-click application installer. To avoid any risk, we will make regular backups of all your MySQL databases, so if something goes wrong following an upgrade or if you remove some data unintentionally, we will be able to get the database back to the way it was on any of the past 7 days.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-activated, so you will be able to make use of any open-source script-based application that needs the database storage engine without activating anything manually. You can select Hepsia on the VPS order form and your new VPS server will be set up within 1 hour, so you can log in and begin creating your websites right away. When you set up a brand-new database and start the app activation process, our system will choose the engine for this MySQL database automatically. Thus, you can make use of various apps simultaneously without the need to modify anything on the VPS server. You can have a WordPress online blog that makes use of the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento web shop that uses the InnoDB engine, for instance.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
If you purchase a new dedicated server, you’ll be able to pick one of the 3 Control Panels that we offer – cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. Each server ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-installed, so you won’t need to add this database engine manually in order to be able to manage script-driven software applications that need it. InnoDB is used for scalable applications and since a dedicated server will offer you all the resources that you need in order to run large-size sites, it is quite possible that you’ll use InnoDB. You’ll be able to make use of other engines too, so if a particular app needs MyISAM rather than InnoDB, you won’t experience any problem while using it. The engine that will be used will be automatically detected the moment the app installation process commences, so you will not need to alter any settings manually at any point.
