InnoDB is a very 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 strong sides that make it the preferred engine for a lot of script-based software applications, such as Magento and Joomla, which have moved to InnoDB permanently. For instance, importing immense volumes of data will be much faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only one database row to complete a given task, not the entire table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is treated. Put simply, importing new or updating existent data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be aborted and the procedure will be rolled back if a given problem shows up in the meantime, so the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.

InnoDB in Shared Hosting

You can install any open-source script-driven application that needs InnoDB if you’ve got a Linux shared hosting with us, as the MySQL database engine is present on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform by default. During the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will continue flawlessly if this engine is needed. You can run applications that require the MyISAM engine without the need to deal with any complication as well and, once again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you will not have to change any setting manually at any moment. In addition, we will also make daily backups of all the databases that you’ve got in the shared hosting account, so in case you delete or overwrite something, we can swiftly get it back to the way it was on any of the previous seven days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support InnoDB and you will be able to make use of all the features of this MySQL database storage engine with any open-source script-driven software app that requires it. InnoDB is among the engines that are available on our cloud hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the requirements of the application in question. You will not need to do anything manually in order to enable InnoDB, because it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an application – whether manually or using our 1-click application installer tool. To avoid any risk, we will perform daily backups of all your databases, so if anything goes wrong after some update or if you erase some content by accident, we’ll be able to restore the database the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting

All Linux VPS web hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB already activated, so you’ll be able to use any open-source script-based application that needs this particular MySQL database storage engine without needing to configure anything manually. You can select Hepsia on the VPS order page and your brand new server will be set up within 1 hour, so you can log in and start setting up your web sites right away. When you set up a brand new MySQL database and begin the app installation process, our system will select the engine for this database automatically. In this way, you can install various apps simultaneously without the need to edit anything on the server. You can have a WordPress-based weblog that makes use of MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento-based e-commerce website that makes use of InnoDB, for example.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you acquire a new dedicated server, you will be able to select one of the 3 Control Panels offered by us – Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel. Any server ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-installed, so you won’t have to add this MySQL database storage engine manually in order to be able to run PHP-based web apps that require it. InnoDB is used for scalable applications and since a dedicated server will supply you with all the server resources that you require to manage large-size websites, it is pretty possible that you will resort to InnoDB. You’ll be able to use other engines too, so if a specific app needs MyISAM instead of InnoDB, you won’t have to deal with any predicament while using it. The engine that will be used will be automatically recognized the moment the app installation starts, so you won’t need to modify any settings manually at any moment.
