InnoDB is a popular database engine for MySQL. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got numerous strengths that have made it the preferred engine for a lot of open-source script-driven web apps, including Magento and Joomla, which have moved to InnoDB for good. For example, importing large volumes of data will be faster with InnoDB, because it locks only a single database row to accomplish an operation, not the entire 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 information is treated. Put simply, appending new or editing existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be aborted and the operation will be rolled back in case any issue appears in the meantime, which means that the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

InnoDB is offered with all our Linux cloud packages by default, not as a paid upgrade or upon request, so you will be able to activate and manage any script-driven application that requires the database engine without any difficulty as soon as you activate your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be pre-selected as the default engine for a certain MySQL database during the app installation process, no matter if you make use of our single-click installer or create the MySQL database and activate the app manually, on the condition that the application requires it instead of the more famous MyISAM engine. We’ll keep daily backups of all your databases, so you can be certain that you’ll never lose any content in case you delete a database accidentally or you overwrite some essential info – you will simply have to touch base with us and we’ll restore your content back to normal.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting

InnoDB comes as standard with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It’s an integral part of the standard software bundle that will be installed on all Hepsia-managed dedicated servers, so as soon as your physical machine is up and running, you’ll be able to sign in and to activate any kind of PHP script-based software application that requires this particular MySQL storage engine. When you create a new database via the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine until you begin installing an application. Once the app activation wizard starts entering content into the database, the engine will be picked automatically depending on the given app’s requirements, so you can run both MyISAM and InnoDB without selecting either of them explicitly at any time. Therefore, you can use a wide range of applications for your sites.
