InnoDB is a popular database storage engine for MySQL. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has many upsides which make it the engine of choice for many PHP script-based applications, among them Magento and Joomla, which have moved to InnoDB for good. For example, adding enormous volumes of data will be faster with InnoDB, since it locks only one row to execute a particular operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the info is tackled. Put simply, appending new or editing existent data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be aborted and the operation will be rolled back if any problem shows up in the meantime, so the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.

InnoDB in Shared Website Hosting

You’ll be able to activate any open-source script-based web application that requires InnoDB in case you’ve got a Linux shared website hosting with us, as the MySQL database engine is available on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform by default. During the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will proceed impeccably if this engine is needed. You can install applications that require the MyISAM engine without having to deal with any difficulty as well and, again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you won’t have to edit anything manually at any time. Furthermore, we’ll also generate daily backups of all the MySQL databases that you have in the shared hosting account, so if you delete or overwrite anything, we can easily restore it the way it was on any of the past seven days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support InnoDB and you can use all the options offered by this MySQL storage engine with any PHP script-driven web app that requires it. It is among the engines that we have on our cloud hosting platform, so the one that will be selected depends on the prerequisites of the given application. You won’t need 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 application installer tool. To avoid any risk, we will store daily database backups, so if anything goes wrong after some update or if you remove some content accidentally, we’ll 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 order a virtual private server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, the InnoDB database storage engine will be an essential part of the default software pack that will be installed on your Virtual Private Server before we hand it over to you. You won’t have to activate anything manually and you’ll be able to install and manage any open-source script-driven web application that needs InnoDB once your VPS is set up, which takes no more than one hour after the order submission process itself. A couple of engines are offered, so anytime you set up a database through the Hepsia Control Panel, a specific engine will be activated once the app installation process begins and our system will automatically detect the engine that is required by the app in question. In case you need MyISAM, for instance, you will not have to do anything different than installing the chosen application, whether manually or using our application installer.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is one of the options that you can select on the order page when you buy a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful type of web hosting, it is rather likely that you’ll run popular sites that will attract lots of visitors, and since InnoDB is one of the best options for such Internet sites, we will enable it along with all the other software apps that come with a Hepsia-managed dedicated server. When you set up a brand-new database in your account, there won’t be any active database engine until you start installing an open-source script, whether manually via your browser or using the automatic script installer that is included in the Control Panel. The required engine will be detected and will be assigned to the database in question, so you can install scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without having any difficulty.
