InnoDB is a very popular database storage engine for the MySQL DBMS. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got a lot of upsides which have made it the preferred engine for a lot of script-based apps, such as Magento and Joomla, which have switched over to InnoDB permanently. For example, adding huge amounts of data will be much faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only one database row to execute a task, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the information is tackled. Simply put, importing new or editing existent data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back if any problem occurs in the meantime, which means that the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.

InnoDB in Shared Website Hosting

You can run any open-source script-driven software application that requires InnoDB if you’ve got a Linux shared website hosting with our company, as the MySQL database engine is available on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform by default. Throughout 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 required. You can install applications which need the MyISAM engine without the need to deal with any complication as well and, once again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you won’t need to configure anything manually at any point. What’s more, we’ll also make regular backups of all the MySQL databases that you’ve got in your shared web hosting account, so in case you delete or overwrite anything, we can quickly restore it the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with InnoDB and you’ll be able to use all the features of this database engine with any open-source script-powered software app that requires it. It’s one of the engines that are available on our cloud web hosting platform, so the one that will be used depends on the prerequisites of the particular application. You will not have to do anything manually in order to enable InnoDB, because it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an app – whether manually or using our 1-click application installer tool. To avoid any risk, we will create regular MySQL database backups, so if anything goes wrong after an upgrade or if you remove some data by accident, we will be able to get the database back to the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

If you get a virtual private server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, the InnoDB storage engine will be an essential part of the default software pack that will be installed on your Virtual Private Server before we give it to you. You won’t need to configure anything manually and you’ll be able to enable and use any open-source script-based app that requires InnoDB when your Virtual Private Server is set up, which takes no more than sixty minutes after the order submission process itself. A number of engines are offered, so every time you set up a MySQL database via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a particular engine will be selected once the app installation process commences and our system will recognize the engine that is required by the app in question. If you need MyISAM, for example, you will not have to do anything different than installing the chosen application, whether manually or using our application installer tool.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

All Linux dedicated web hosting ordered with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel include a software package that’s pre-installed and among everything else, you’ll get the InnoDB database engine, so you won’t have to activate it manually in case you want to run open-source PHP scripts that need it. All it takes to install such a script is to set up a new MySQL database and to begin the installation process – as soon as the script setup wizard gets access to the database in question and begins dumping data in it, InnoDB will be set as the default MySQL engine for this database provided that it is the one required by the script. You’ll also be able to use scripts that need the other widely used MySQL engine – MyISAM, so you will not need to edit any settings on the server. This will permit you to use a variety of scripts on one single machine and to use it to its fullest potential.
