InnoDB is a popular storage engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got a lot of advantages which make it the preferred engine for numerous open-source script-based web apps, including Joomla and Magento, which have switched to InnoDB for good. For example, adding huge amounts of data will be much faster with InnoDB, since it locks only one row to carry out a given operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable applications. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the information is treated. To put it simply, importing new or editing existent data will either be entirely completed, or will be annulled and the operation will be rolled back in case some problem appears in the meantime, which means that the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.

InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting

InnoDB is offered with all our Linux cloud web hosting packages by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you can activate and run any open-source script-driven app which requires the database storage engine without encountering any obstacle as soon as you open your shared website hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a given MySQL database during the app installation, regardless of whether you use our 1-click installation tool or create the MySQL database and set up the app manually, as long as the app requires it instead of the more famous MyISAM engine. We’ll perform daily database backups, so you can rest assured that you’ll never lose any content in case you erase a database accidentally or you overwrite some important information – you simply have to notify us and we will restore your database back to normal.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

InnoDB is included with all our semi-dedicated hosting by default, so once you buy a new semi-dedicated account, you can go ahead and activate any open-source script-powered app that needs this MySQL storage engine. Several engines are installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so when you set up a brand new database and begin installing an app manually, or opt to use the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated app installer tool, the engine for the database will be chosen on the basis of the requirements of the respective application. This will permit you to activate and run InnoDB-specific apps without having to cope with any problem and without the need to update any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To avoid any risk, we’ll always keep a 7-day-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you remove or alter any content by mistake, we can easily restore it.

InnoDB in VPS

If our custom Hepsia Control Panel is selected during the registration process for your new Linux VPS packages , InnoDB will be installed on the Virtual Private Server along with other needed pieces of software, so you will not have to do anything if you decide to make use of open-source script-powered software apps that require this MySQL database storage engine. The default MySQL engine – MyISAM, will be activated as well. You can set up a new database and start the app installation manually or using our 1-click installation tool. The system will detect the engine that the app in question needs and will set it for the specific MySQL database, so the installation process will continue flawlessly and the application can insert its content into that database. Thus, you can manage apps with various requirements concerning the MySQL engine without making any modifications on your server.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the features which you can choose on the server configuration page when you purchase a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful type of web hosting, it is rather likely that you will run highly popular sites that will draw a lot of people, and since InnoDB is among the very best choices for such sites, we will install it along with all the other software applications that are available with a Hepsia-equipped server. If you set up a brand new MySQL database in your account, there won’t be any active storage engine till you begin installing an open-source script, whether manually through your browser or using the automatic script installer tool that is included in the Control Panel. The needed engine will be recognized automatically and will be set for the database in question, so you can activate scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without encountering any impediment.
