InnoDB is a popular database storage engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got a number of pluses which make it the engine of choice for many open-source script-based web apps, such as Magento and Joomla, which have moved to InnoDB for good. For example, importing large amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, as it locks only one row to carry out a specific task, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the information is tackled. Put simply, appending new or modifying existing data will either be fully completed, or will be aborted and the procedure will be rolled back if some problem shows up in the meantime, so the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.

InnoDB in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to activate any open-source script-driven web application that requires InnoDB in case you have a Linux shared package with our company, as the MySQL storage engine is available on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform by default. During the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will continue flawlessly in case this engine is needed. You can run apps which need the MyISAM engine without having any problem as well and, again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you will not have to update anything manually at any time. Furthermore, we will also generate regular backups of all the databases that you have in the shared account, so in case you erase or overwrite anything, we can easily restore it the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting include InnoDB and you can take advantage of all the features offered by this database storage engine with any open-source script-based software application that needs it. InnoDB is one of the engines that we have on our cloud web hosting platform, so the one that will be used depends on the prerequisites of the particular app. You won’t need to do anything manually to enable InnoDB, as it will be set as the default engine when you install an app – whether manually or using our single-click app installer tool. To avoid any risk, we will carry out regular MySQL database backups, so if anything goes wrong following some update or if you remove some content accidentally, we will be able to restore your database the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

If you pick a virtual private server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB database storage engine will be an indivisible part of the default software bundle that will be installed on your VPS server before we hand it over to you. You will not need to activate anything manually and you’ll be able to install and run any PHP script-powered software app that needs InnoDB as soon as your VPS is up and running, which takes no more than sixty minutes after the order submission procedure itself. A few engines are available, so every time you create a MySQL database through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a particular engine will be selected once the app activation commences and our system will automatically recognize the engine that is required by the app in question. In case you need to use MyISAM, for instance, you will not need to do anything different from installing the chosen application, whether manually or using our application installer.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

All Linux dedicated web hosting ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel include a software bundle that’s pre-installed and besides everything else, you will get the InnoDB database storage engine, so you will not need to add it manually if you’d like to use open-source scripts that require it. All it takes to run such a script is to set up a new MySQL database and to start the installation – as soon as the installer wizard gets access to the database and begins entering data into it, InnoDB will be set as the default MySQL engine for this database as long as it is the one needed by the script. You’ll also be able to activate scripts that need MyISAM, the other popular MySQL engine, so you will not have to update any settings on the server. This will allow you to install various scripts on one single physical server and to use it to its maximum capabilities.
