InnoDB is a popular database engine for the MySQL database management system. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has a number of advantages that have made it the preferred engine for many PHP script-based apps, including Joomla and Magento, which have moved to InnoDB permanently. For example, importing large volumes of data will be faster with InnoDB, because it locks only one row to execute a given task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is handled. To put it simply, importing new or updating existing data will either be entirely completed, or will be annulled and the procedure will be rolled back in case some problem appears during the process, thus the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Website Hosting

Every PHP script-based web application that requires InnoDB will function impeccably on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform and the MySQL database engine comes with all our website hosting packages. Whenever you create a MySQL database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation is started, the engine that the database in question will use will be selected on the basis of the app’s requirements without having to change any setting in your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be chosen automatically for any app that requires this specific engine and you will be able to take advantage of its full potential. We will generate regular content backups, so in case you unintentionally erase a database that you need or you overwrite some part of it, we will be able to restore everything the way it was just a couple of hours ago.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the options that you can choose on the server order page when you buy a dedicated server from our company. As this is the most powerful kind of web hosting, it is quite likely that you’ll manage highly popular websites that will draw many visitors, and since InnoDB is one of the best choices for such sites, we’ll install it along with all the other software apps that come with a Hepsia-managed dedicated server. When you set up a brand new MySQL database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any active MySQL database storage engine till you begin installing a script, whether manually through your Internet browser or using the automatic script installer tool that is included in the Control Panel. The needed engine will be detected automatically and will be set for that database, so you can install scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without running into any difficulty.
