InnoDB is a very popular database engine for the MySQL DBMS. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has lots of strong sides which have made it the engine of choice for plenty of open-source script-based software applications, such as Joomla and Magento, which have switched over to InnoDB for good. For instance, importing large amounts of data will be much faster with InnoDB, as it locks only a single row to perform an operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the information is treated. To put it simply, importing new or updating existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be annulled and the operation will be rolled back if a given problem occurs during the process, which means that the content that remains in the database will not be lost.
InnoDB in Shared Website Hosting
Every PHP script-powered software application that requires InnoDB will run impeccably on our advanced cloud hosting platform and the MySQL database storage engine is available with all our shared website hosting packages. Each 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 will make use of will be selected on the basis of the app’s requirements without having to modify any setting in your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be picked automatically for any application that requires this particular engine and you’ll be able to get the most out of its full capacity. We’ll keep daily content backups, so if you accidentally delete a MySQL database that’s important to you or you overwrite certain parts of it, we will be able to restore your content the way it was only a few hours earlier.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages come with InnoDB and you can make the most of all the features of this MySQL storage engine with any script-powered application that requires it. It’s among the engines that are available on our cloud platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the requirements of the respective app. You will not need to do anything manually to enable InnoDB, since it will be set as the default engine when you install an application – whether manually or using our 1-click application installer. To avoid any risk, we’ll carry out daily MySQL database backups, so if anything goes wrong after some update or if you remove some content by accident, we will be able to restore the database the way it was on any of the previous 7 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 are offering – DirectAdmin, cPanel and Hepsia. Each dedicated server ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-activated, so you will not need to install this database engine manually so as to be able to manage PHP-driven applications that require it. InnoDB is used by scalable applications and since a dedicated server will supply you with all the system resources that you need in order to run very large websites, it is very possible that you’ll use InnoDB. You will be able to use other engines too, so in case a certain app needs MyISAM instead of InnoDB, you won’t encounter any impediment while using it. The engine that will be used will be recognized automatically the moment the app installation starts, so you won’t need to fine-tune any settings manually at any point.
