InnoDB is a popular database engine for MySQL. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got plenty of upsides that make it the engine of choice for numerous PHP script-based software applications, among them Joomla and Magento, which have switched to InnoDB permanently. For example, adding immense amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only a single database row to execute a specific operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is handled. To put it simply, importing new or editing existing data will either be fully completed, or will be annulled and the operation will be rolled back if a certain issue shows up during the process, thus the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.
InnoDB in Website Hosting
You’ll be able to use any PHP-powered application that needs InnoDB in case you’ve got a Linux website hosting with our company, as the MySQL database engine is available on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform by default. During the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will proceed flawlessly if this engine is needed. You can install apps which require the MyISAM engine without encountering any problem as well and, once again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you won’t need to edit any setting manually at any point. On top of that, we will also perform regular backups of all the databases that you have in the shared account, so in case you erase or overwrite something, we can easily restore it the way it was on any of the past 7 days.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can use an open-source script-driven application that needs InnoDB with any of our semi-dedicated server plans, as all the accounts are created on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform where the database engine is installed. A new MySQL database can be set up in two separate ways – manually through the Database Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, or automatically – when you use our one-click application installer tool. In either case, the required engine will be chosen automatically as soon as the app’s activation starts, so you will not have to change anything manually, no matter if the app needs InnoDB or the more regularly used MyISAM. Also, we’ll always be able to recover any of your MySQL databases if you accidentally remove one, as we create a few backups every day, each of which is preserved for one whole week.
InnoDB in VPS Hosting
In case our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is picked during the signup process for your new Linux virtual private servers , InnoDB will be activated on the VPS server along with other necessary software, so you won’t need to do anything if you choose to use open-source script-based software applications that require this MySQL database storage engine. The default MySQL engine – MyISAM, will be activated as well. You can create a new database and begin installing the application manually or through our 1-click installer tool. The system will automatically recognize which engine the application in question requires and will assign it to the specific database, so the installation process will proceed flawlessly and the application can insert its content into that database. In this way, you can activate applications with various requirements regarding the MySQL engine without making any changes on your Virtual Private Server.
InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting
Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the options which you can select on the order form when you purchase a dedicated server from us. As this is the most powerful type of website hosting, it is rather likely that you will manage popular websites that will draw a lot of visitors, and since InnoDB is one of the very best choices for such sites, we will enable it along with all the other software apps that are offered with a Hepsia-managed dedicated server. When you set up a brand new database in your account, there won’t be any activated database engine until you begin installing a PHP script, whether manually via your web browser or using the automatic scripts installer tool that is included in the Control Panel. The necessary engine will be recognized and will be set for that database, so you can install scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without the need to deal with any difficulty.
