InnoDB is a popular storage engine for MySQL. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got plenty of strong sides which have made it the preferred engine for many open-source script-based software apps, such as Magento and Joomla, which have shifted over to InnoDB permanently. For instance, adding enormous volumes of data will be much faster with InnoDB, because it locks only one database row to perform a given operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is treated. To put it simply, adding new or updating existent data will either be fully completed, or will be aborted and the operation will be rolled back if some issue appears during the process, so the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.

InnoDB in Shared Website Hosting

You’ll be able to activate any script-based software application that needs InnoDB if you’ve got a Linux shared website hosting package with our company, as the MySQL database engine is present on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform as standard. During the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will continue impeccably if this engine is needed. You can activate apps that use the MyISAM engine without encountering any difficulty as well and, once again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you won’t have to edit any setting manually at any point. Furthermore, we’ll also carry out regular backups of all the MySQL databases that you’ve got in the shared hosting account, so if 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

InnoDB is offered with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting by default, so as soon as you order a new semi-dedicated account, you can go on and install any script-based web app that requires the MySQL database storage engine. Several engines are pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so when you create a brand new database and start installing an application manually, or decide to use the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated app installer tool, the engine for the database will be chosen on the basis of the requirements of the given application. This will allow you to install and manage InnoDB-specific apps without any complications and without having to update any settings in your account. To be on the safe side, we will always have a 1-week-old backup of all your databases, so if you remove or alter any content unintentionally, we can quickly rescue it.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

All Linux VPS hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB already installed, so you’ll be able to make use of any PHP script-driven software app that requires this particular database storage engine without having to set up anything manually. You can select Hepsia on the VPS configuration page and your brand new Virtual Private Server will be ready within sixty minutes, so you can log in and start building your web sites right away. When you set up a brand-new database and start the app activation process, our system will pick the engine for that database automatically. Thus, you can manage various applications simultaneously without having to update anything on the VPS server. You can set up a WordPress-based weblog that uses MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento-based web store that makes use of InnoDB, for example.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

InnoDB is included as standard with all dedicated web hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It’s an essential part of the software package that will be installed on all Hepsia-managed servers, so once your physical machine is up and running, you’ll be able to log in and to install any type of open-source script-based application that needs this MySQL database storage engine. When you create a new MySQL database via the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine until you begin installing an application. Once the app activation wizard begins dumping content in the database, the engine will be picked automatically in accordance with the prerequisites of the particular application, so you can use both MyISAM and InnoDB without having to select either one specifically at any moment. In this way, you can make use of an immense range of applications for your websites.
