InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has lots of upsides that have made it the engine of choice for lots of PHP-powered applications, such as Joomla and Magento, which have moved to InnoDB permanently. For example, adding immense data volumes will be faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only one row to execute a specific task, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is treated. In simpler words, appending new or updating existent data will either be entirely completed, or will be aborted and the procedure will be rolled back in case a certain issue appears during the process, therefore the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.

InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting

You will be able to activate any open-source script-driven web application that needs InnoDB if you have a cloud website hosting package with us, as the storage engine is available on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform as standard. Throughout the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will proceed impeccably if this engine is required. You can run applications which need the MyISAM engine without any difficulty as well and, again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you will not have to modify anything manually at any time. In addition, we will also carry out daily backups of all the MySQL databases that you’ve got in the shared 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

You can install a script-powered app that needs InnoDB with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, due to the fact that all the accounts are set up on our avant-garde cloud platform where the database engine is installed. A new database can be set up in two ways – manually from the Database Manager section of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, or automatically – if you use our single-click application installer. In either case, the needed engine will be picked automatically the moment the application’s activation starts, so you won’t have to update anything manually, no matter if the application requires InnoDB or the more frequently used MyISAM. Furthermore, we will always be able to retrieve any of your databases in case you delete one by mistake, as we generate a few backups every day, each of which is stored for 1 week.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

All Linux VPS hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-activated, so you’ll be able to use any open-source script-based web app that requires the MySQL database engine without the need to set up anything manually. You can pick Hepsia on the VPS order page and your brand-new Virtual Private Server will be ready within 1 hour, so you can sign in and start creating your Internet sites right away. When you set up a brand new MySQL database and start the app activation process, our system will set the engine for that MySQL database automatically. Thus, you can run various applications at the same time without the need to edit anything on the VPS server. You can create a WordPress-powered online journal that makes use of MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento shopping portal that makes use of InnoDB, for instance.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you purchase a new dedicated server, you’ll be able to choose any of the three Control Panels that we offer – DirectAdmin, cPanel and Hepsia. Any server ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-installed, so you will not have to activate this MySQL database storage engine manually to be able to run open-source script-driven web apps that need it. InnoDB is used by scalable applications and since a dedicated server will give you all the resources that you require in order to manage large-size Internet sites, it is very likely that you will resort to InnoDB. You will be able to make use of other engines too, so in case a particular application needs MyISAM instead of InnoDB, you will not need to deal with any difficulty while running it. The engine that will be used will be automatically recognized when the app installation procedure commences, so you will not need to fine-tune any settings manually whatsoever.
