InnoDB is a very popular database engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got a lot of pluses which have made it the preferred engine for numerous script-powered software applications, among them Magento and Joomla, which have shifted over to InnoDB for good. For example, adding large data volumes will be much faster with InnoDB, since it locks only one row to carry out a given task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the info is treated. To put it simply, appending new or modifying existent data will either be fully 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 Shared Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our Linux shared services by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you will be able to activate and run any PHP-driven app which requires the InnoDB database storage engine without having to deal with any impediment as soon as you open your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be pre-selected as the default engine for a given MySQL database during the app activation process, regardless of whether you make use of our one-click installation tool or create the MySQL database and activate the application manually, provided that the app requires InnoDB instead of the more popular MyISAM engine. We will store regular backups of all your MySQL databases, so you can be sure that you will never lose any data in case you delete a database by accident or you overwrite some essential info – you will simply need to contact us and we’ll restore your data the way it was.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you set up a brand-new MySQL database through the hosting Control Panel offered with each of our semi-dedicated server accounts and you start installing an open-source script-driven web application either manually or using our one-click application installer, the storage engine for the database will be picked automatically on the basis of the particular app’s prerequisites. Since InnoDB is present on the cloud web hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated server account will be created, it will be set as the default engine for any application that needs it without any manual action needed on your end at any time. To prevent any chance of losing info if you update an app or if you erase a database by accident, we’ll make a backup of all your databases every day, so if something happens, we can rescue your content.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

If you pick a virtual private server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB database engine will be an indivisible part of the software bundle that will be pre-installed on your Virtual Private Server before we give it to you. You will not have to activate anything manually and you will be able to install and run any script-based app that requires InnoDB once your VPS server is set up, which takes no more than 1 hour after the order procedure itself. A couple of engines are available, so anytime you set up a database via the Hepsia Control Panel, a particular engine will be selected once the app installation starts and our system will detect which engine is required by the application in question. In case you need MyISAM, for instance, you won’t have to do anything different than installing the application of your preference, whether manually or using our application installer tool.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

All Linux dedicated web hosting ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel come with a software bundle that’s pre-installed and besides everything else, you will get the InnoDB storage engine, so you won’t have to add it manually in case you’d like to use scripts that require it. All it takes to activate such a script is to create a new database and to begin the installation – as soon as the setup wizard gets access to the database and begins importing data into it, InnoDB will be set as the default engine for this database provided that it is the one needed by the script. You will also be able to install scripts that need MyISAM – the other widely used MySQL engine, so you will not need to change any settings on the dedicated server. This will enable you to install a variety of scripts on one single server and to use the latter to its full potential.
