InnoDB is a very popular database engine for the MySQL DBMS. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got many upsides that have made it the engine of choice for a lot of open-source script-powered apps, such as Joomla and Magento, which have shifted over to InnoDB for good. For instance, importing immense amounts of data will be much faster with InnoDB, as it locks only one row to execute a particular 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 manner in which the data is treated. Put simply, adding new or modifying existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back if a certain issue occurs in the meantime, thus the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.

InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting

You will be able to make use of any script-powered web application that requires InnoDB in case you have a Linux cloud website hosting package with our company, as the storage engine is available on our innovative cloud website hosting platform as standard. Throughout the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will proceed flawlessly in case this engine is needed. You can install applications that require the MyISAM engine without any problem as well and, again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you won’t need to modify any setting manually at any moment. In addition, we’ll also carry out daily backups of all the MySQL databases that you’ve got in the shared web hosting account, so if you erase or overwrite anything, we can quickly restore it the way it was on any of the previous seven days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages support InnoDB and you’ll be able to get the most out of all the features of this MySQL storage engine with any open-source script-based application that needs it. It is one of the engines that we have on our cloud website hosting platform, so the one that will be selected depends on the given app’s requirements. You will not have to do anything manually to activate InnoDB, as it will be set as the default engine when you install an application – whether manually or using our one-click application installer tool. To avoid any risk, we will carry out regular backups of all your databases, so if anything goes wrong after an update or if you delete some data by mistake, we will be able to get the database back to the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS

All Linux VPS packages that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB already activated, so you will be able to run any PHP script-driven software app that needs the database storage engine without having to install anything manually. You can pick Hepsia on the VPS order form and your brand-new VPS server will be ready within one hour, so you can log in and begin creating your Internet sites straight away. When you set up a brand new MySQL database and begin the app activation process, our system will pick the engine for this MySQL database automatically. In this way, you can run different apps at the same time without configuring anything on the server. You can create a WordPress-driven weblog that uses MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento-based e-store that makes use of InnoDB, for example.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

When you purchase a new dedicated server, you will be able to choose one of the three hosting Control Panels that we are offering – DirectAdmin, cPanel and Hepsia. Each dedicated server ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-activated, so you will not have to activate this MySQL database engine manually to be able to manage PHP script-based software applications that require it. InnoDB is used for scalable applications and since a dedicated server will supply you with all the server resources that you need to manage large-size sites, it’s rather possible that you’ll resort to InnoDB. You’ll be able to make use of other engines as well, so in case a given app requires MyISAM instead of InnoDB, you will not have any complication while running it. The engine that will be used will be automatically recognized once the app installation begins, so you will not have to change any settings manually at any time.
