InnoDB is a very popular database storage engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has a number of strong sides which make it the engine of choice for lots of open-source script-powered software apps, such as Magento and Joomla, which have shifted over to InnoDB for good. For instance, importing enormous volumes of data will be faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only a single database row to perform a given operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the data is handled. To put it simply, importing new or updating existing data will either be entirely completed, or will be aborted and the procedure will be rolled back in case some issue appears in the meantime, thus the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Shared Hosting

You will be able to run any PHP-driven software application that requires InnoDB in case you’ve got a Linux shared hosting package with our company, as the MySQL storage engine is available on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform as standard. Throughout the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will proceed flawlessly in case this engine is required. You can install apps that use the MyISAM engine without having to deal with any difficulty as well and, once again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you won’t need to modify anything manually at any time. In addition, we will also make regular backups of all the MySQL databases that you have in the shared hosting account, so in case you erase or overwrite something, we can quickly restore it the way it was on any of the past seven days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you create a new MySQL database through the Control Panel coming with each of our semi-dedicated server plans and you begin installing an open-source script-powered software application either manually or using our one-click app installer tool, the storage engine for the MySQL database will be selected automatically depending on the prerequisites of the given application. As InnoDB is present on the cloud web hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated server account will be set up, it will be set as the default engine for each application that requires it without any manual action needed on your end at any time. To prevent any risk of losing information if you update an application or if you delete a database accidentally, we will generate backups of all your databases every day, so if something happens, we can restore your content.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the options that you can select on the server configuration page when you buy a dedicated server from our company. As this is the most powerful kind of web hosting, it is very likely that you will run popular Internet sites that will draw plenty of people, and since InnoDB is among the best choices for such Internet sites, we will activate it together with all the other software apps that are offered with a Hepsia-managed server. When you set up a brand new MySQL database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any active storage engine until you start installing a script, whether manually through your web browser or using the automatic script installer tool that is included in the hosting Control Panel. The required engine will be recognized automatically and will be set for that database, so you can make use of scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without needing to deal with any obstacle.
