InnoDB is a very popular database storage engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got many upsides that make it the engine of choice for lots of open-source script-driven apps, including Joomla and Magento, which have shifted over to InnoDB for good. For example, adding huge volumes of data will be much faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only a single row to complete an operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the information is treated. To put it simply, appending new or updating existing data will either be entirely completed, or will be annulled and the operation will be rolled back if any issue shows up in the meantime, thus the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

Every PHP-driven web application that requires InnoDB will run impeccably on our leading-edge cloud platform and the MySQL database storage engine comes with all our cloud hosting plans. Each time you create a database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation is initiated, the engine that the database in question will use will be selected based on the app’s specifications without having to edit any setting in your account. InnoDB will be picked automatically for any app that requires this specific engine and you will be able to take advantage of its full capacity. We’ll maintain daily content backups, so if you accidentally erase a database that you need or you overwrite certain parts of it, we’ll be able to restore the database the way it was just several hours ago.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can run a script-powered app that needs InnoDB with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, since all the accounts are set up on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform where the MySQL storage engine is installed. A new database can be created in two separate ways – manually through the Database Manager section of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, or automatically – in case you take advantage of our one-click application installer. Either way, the required engine will be chosen automatically as soon as the app’s activation begins, so you will not need to configure anything manually, irrespective of whether the app requires InnoDB or the more widely used MyISAM. In addition, we will always be able to restore any of your databases if you accidentally remove one, as we carry out several database backups every day, each of which is stored for seven days.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

When you order a new dedicated server, you will be able to choose one of the three Control Panels that we offer – cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin. Any dedicated server ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-activated, so you will not have to install this storage engine manually in order to be able to use open-source script-driven apps that need it. InnoDB is used by scalable applications and since a dedicated server will offer you all the server resources that you need in order to run very large sites, it’s very possible that you’ll use InnoDB. You’ll be able to make use of other engines too, so in case a particular application requires MyISAM rather than InnoDB, you will not run into any impediment while managing it. The engine that will be used will be recognized automatically when the app installation begins, so you will not have to fine-tune any settings manually at any point.
