InnoDB is a popular database engine for MySQL. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got plenty of upsides that have made it the engine of choice for lots of open-source script-driven applications, such as Joomla and Magento, which have switched to InnoDB permanently. For example, adding large volumes of data will be faster with InnoDB, because it locks only one row to accomplish an operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the data is tackled. To put it simply, appending new or updating existing data will either be fully completed, or will be aborted and the operation will be rolled back in case a given issue shows up during the process, thus the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.

InnoDB in Shared Website Hosting

You can run any script-based web app that requires InnoDB in case you have a Linux shared website hosting package with us, as the MySQL database engine is present on our innovative cloud website hosting platform as standard. Throughout the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will continue impeccably in case this engine is required. You can run applications which need the MyISAM engine without having to deal with any impediment as well and, again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you won’t need to modify anything manually at any point. In addition, we’ll also create daily backups of all the databases that you’ve got in your shared account, so in case you erase or overwrite anything, we can easily restore it the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you set up a brand-new MySQL database through the Control Panel included with each of our semi-dedicated server packages and you begin installing a PHP-powered software app either manually or using our single-click application installer, the database storage engine will be picked automatically based on the requirements of the specific app. Since InnoDB is available on the cloud hosting platform where your new account will be created, it will be set as the default engine for each application that requires it without any manual intervention needed on your end at any point. To prevent any chance of losing info if you update an application or if you remove a database by accident, we will carry out a backup of all your databases every day, so if anything goes wrong, we can retrieve your data.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Our Hepsia Control Panel is one of the features which you can pick on the order page when you buy a dedicated server from our company. Since this is the most powerful kind of hosting, it is pretty likely that you’ll manage popular sites that will draw lots of individuals, and since InnoDB is one of the very best options for such sites, we’ll enable it together with all the other software applications that are offered with a Hepsia-equipped server. If you create a new database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any active MySQL storage engine until you start installing a script, whether manually through your browser or using the automatic scripts installer that is integrated into the hosting Control Panel. The required engine will be recognized automatically and will be set for the database in question, so you can use scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without encountering any difficulty.
