InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has numerous upsides that make it the engine of choice for plenty of script-powered apps, such as Joomla and Magento, which have switched over to InnoDB permanently. For example, adding enormous data volumes will be faster with InnoDB, because it locks only a single row to complete a given task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the information is tackled. In simpler words, appending new or editing existent data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back in case a given problem appears in the meantime, so the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.

InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting

You’ll be able to activate any PHP-powered application that needs InnoDB in case you have a Linux cloud website hosting package with us, as the database engine is present on our advanced cloud hosting platform by default. During the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will continue impeccably if this engine is needed. You can activate apps that require the MyISAM engine without having to deal with any impediment as well and, again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you won’t need to modify anything manually at any time. Furthermore, we’ll also create regular backups of all the databases that you’ve got in your shared account, so in case you delete or overwrite something, we can easily restore it the way it was on any of the past seven days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you create a brand-new MySQL database through the hosting Control Panel offered with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you begin installing a script-powered software application either manually or using our one-click application installer tool, the MySQL database storage engine will be picked automatically depending on the particular app’s prerequisites. As InnoDB is present on the cloud web hosting platform where your new account will be set up, it will be set as the default engine for any app that needs it without the need for any manual action on your end at any moment. To prevent any risk of losing information if you update an app or if you delete a database unintentionally, we will generate a backup of all your MySQL databases each and every day, so if something goes wrong, we can rescue your data.

InnoDB in VPS

If you order a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to take advantage of our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel to manage your content. A Hepsia-equipped Virtual Private Server will allow you to use any script-powered software application that requires InnoDB, as this particular database engine is an essential part of the default software package that will be pre-installed on the server during its creation. When you create a brand new MySQL database using the Control Panel, you’ll simply need to start installing an application – manually or using our application installer. InnoDB will be set as the default engine in case the app in question needs it, so you will not have to do anything else in your account. Analogously, if a given application needs MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this specific MySQL database.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

InnoDB comes by default with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It is included in the software package that we install on all Hepsia-equipped servers, so as soon as your physical machine is ready, you’ll be able to log in and to install any open-source script-driven web app that needs this MySQL database storage engine. When you create a new database through the Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine until you start installing an app. As soon as the app configuration wizard begins entering content into the newly created database, the engine will be picked automatically depending on the given app’s prerequisites, so you can run both InnoDB and MyISAM without the need to select either one of them explicitly at any point. In this way, you can use a vast collection of apps for your websites.
