InnoDB is a popular storage engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got a number of pluses which make it the engine of choice for a lot of script-based web applications, including Magento and Joomla, which have moved to InnoDB permanently. For instance, adding immense amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, because it locks only a single database row to complete a specific operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the data is tackled. Simply put, adding new or modifying existent data will either be entirely completed, or will be annulled and the operation will be rolled back if some problem shows up in the meantime, so the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.

InnoDB in Website Hosting

You can make use of any open-source script-based app that needs InnoDB in case you’ve got a Linux website hosting service with us, as the database storage engine is present on our advanced cloud web hosting platform as standard. During the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will proceed impeccably in case this engine is required. You can install apps which need the MyISAM engine without encountering any impediment as well and, again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you won’t need to update anything manually at any time. On top of that, we will also make daily backups of all the MySQL databases that you’ve got in your account, so in case you erase or overwrite anything, we can swiftly restore it the way it was on any of the past seven days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with InnoDB and you’ll be able to take full advantage of all the features offered by this MySQL database engine with any open-source script-based web app that requires it. It is among the engines that we have on our cloud web hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the prerequisites of the given application. You won’t have to do anything manually in order to activate InnoDB, since it will be set as the default engine when you install an application – whether manually or using our single-click app installer. To avoid any risk, we’ll keep daily backups of all your MySQL databases, so if something goes wrong following some update or if you remove some data by accident, we will be able to get your database back to the way it was on any of the past seven days.

InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting

If you order a virtual private server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB database storage engine will be part of the default software bundle that will be installed on your Virtual Private Server before we hand it over to you. You won’t need to configure anything manually and you will be able to enable and manage any PHP script-driven app that requires InnoDB when your Virtual Private Server is up and running, which takes no more than one hour after the order process itself. A few engines are offered, so anytime you create a database through the Hepsia Control Panel, a particular engine will be activated when the app installation process starts and our system will recognize the engine that is required by the application in question. In case you have to use MyISAM, for example, you won’t need to do anything different from installing the chosen application, whether manually or using our application installer.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All Linux dedicated hosting services ordered with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel come with a software bundle that is pre-installed and besides everything else, you will get the InnoDB database engine, so you won’t have to add it manually if you would like to activate PHP scripts that require it. All it takes to activate such a script is to create a new database and to begin the setup – as soon as the script configuration wizard obtains access to the database in question and starts importing data into it, InnoDB will be set as the default engine for this database provided that it is the one required by the script. You’ll also be able to use scripts that need MyISAM, the other very popular MySQL engine, so you won’t need to update any settings on the server. This will allow you to install various scripts on one single machine and to use it to its maximum capabilities.
