InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for the MySQL database management system. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got plenty of upsides which have made it the preferred engine for plenty of open-source script-powered applications, among them Joomla and Magento, which have moved to InnoDB permanently. For example, adding enormous data volumes will be much faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only a single database row to complete a given task, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the information is treated. Put simply, adding new or modifying existent data will either be fully completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back if any problem appears during the process, which is why the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting

You’ll be able to activate any script-driven application that needs InnoDB if you’ve got a Linux cloud website hosting with us, as the database storage engine is present on our innovative cloud website hosting platform as standard. During 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 run applications which need the MyISAM engine without any problems as well and, again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you will not need to change any setting manually at any point. On top of that, we will also create regular backups of all the databases that you have in the account, so if you delete or overwrite something, we can swiftly restore it the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated packages support InnoDB and you’ll be able to take advantage of all the features offered by this database engine with any script-powered web application that needs it. It is among the engines that we have on our cloud website hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the prerequisites of the app in question. You won’t have to do anything manually to enable InnoDB, because it will be set as the default engine when you install an app – whether manually or using our single-click app installer tool. To be on the safe side, we’ll keep regular backups of all your MySQL databases, so if anything goes wrong following some update or if you remove some data accidentally, we’ll be able to restore the database the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS

All VPS that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-activated, so you will be able to use any script-powered web application that needs this particular storage engine without needing to install anything manually. You can select Hepsia on the VPS configuration page and your brand new VPS server will be up and running within 60 minutes, so you can sign in and start building your websites straight away. Once you set up a new database and begin the app activation process, our system will select the engine for this MySQL database automatically. In this way, you can install various apps at the same time without the need to configure anything on the server. You can create a WordPress blog that makes use of MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento e-commerce site that uses InnoDB, for example.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

Our Hepsia Control Panel is one of the features which you can choose on the order page when you purchase a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful kind of hosting, it is very likely that you will run popular Internet sites that will draw a lot of individuals, and since InnoDB is among the very best choices for such Internet sites, we will install it along with all the other software apps that are available with a Hepsia-managed dedicated server. When you create a new database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any active MySQL storage engine until you start installing a PHP script, whether manually via your Internet browser or using the automatic script installer tool that is integrated into the hosting Control Panel. The necessary engine will be automatically recognized and will be assigned to that database, so you can install scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without experiencing any complication.
