InnoDB is a very popular database storage engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has plenty of strengths that have made it the engine of choice for plenty of script-based software apps, including Joomla and Magento, which have switched to InnoDB for good. For example, adding huge amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, because it locks only a single row to accomplish a given task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the information is tackled. Put simply, adding new or editing existent data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be aborted and the operation will be rolled back if some issue shows up in the meantime, which means that the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.

InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting

You’ll be able to activate any script-based web application that requires InnoDB if you have a Linux cloud web hosting with us, as the MySQL database storage engine is available on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform as standard. During the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will continue flawlessly if this engine is needed. You can activate applications that use the MyISAM engine without having to deal with any obstacle as well and, again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you won’t need to edit any setting manually at any point. What’s more, we’ll also perform daily backups of all the databases that you have in the shared hosting account, so in case you delete or overwrite something, we can quickly restore it the way it was on any of the past seven days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with InnoDB and you’ll be able to get the most out of all the features of this storage engine with any open-source script-powered application that needs it. It’s among the engines that we have on our cloud web hosting platform, so the one that will be used depends on the prerequisites of the respective app. You won’t have to do anything manually in order to activate InnoDB, because it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an app – whether manually or using our one-click app installer tool. To be on the safe side, we’ll create regular MySQL database backups, so if something goes wrong following some update or if you delete some content by mistake, we’ll be able to get the database back to the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

If you pick a virtual private server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB storage engine will be an essential part of the software package that will be pre-installed on your VPS server before we hand it over to you. You will not have to set up anything manually and you will be able to enable and run any PHP script-driven application that needs InnoDB when your VPS server is ready, which takes no more than 60 minutes after the order submission procedure itself. A number of engines are offered, so whenever you set up a database using the Hepsia Control Panel, a particular engine will be picked when the app installation process starts and our system will automatically detect which engine is required by the application in question. In case you need to use MyISAM, for example, you will not need to do anything different than installing the desired application, whether manually or using our application installer.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

InnoDB is included by default with all Linux dedicated hosting services ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is an integral part of the default software bundle that we install on all Hepsia-managed dedicated servers, so as soon as your machine is assembled, you’ll be able to sign in and to install a various PHP script-driven application that requires this particular MySQL database storage engine. When you set up a new MySQL database through the Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine until you start installing an application. As soon as the app installation wizard begins entering content into the database, the engine will be selected automatically depending on the prerequisites of the respective app, so you can use both InnoDB and MyISAM without selecting either one explicitly at any moment. Therefore, you can use a vast variety of apps for your sites.
