InnoDB is a very popular database storage engine for the MySQL DBMS. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got a lot of upsides that have made it the preferred engine for numerous open-source script-driven software apps, among them Magento and Joomla, which have shifted over to InnoDB for good. For example, importing enormous data volumes will be faster with InnoDB, as it locks only one database row to complete a particular operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the info is handled. Simply put, importing new or updating existing data will either be entirely completed, or will be aborted and the procedure will be rolled back in case any issue appears in the meantime, therefore the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.

InnoDB in Shared Hosting

You will be able to make use of any PHP-based software app that requires InnoDB if you have a Linux shared hosting package with us, as the MySQL storage engine is present on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform by default. During 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 install applications that require the MyISAM engine without any impediments as well and, once again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you won’t need to change any setting manually at any moment. What’s more, we’ll also carry out regular backups of all the databases that you’ve got in the account, so if you delete or overwrite anything, we can quickly restore it the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can install a PHP-driven app that needs InnoDB with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, since all the accounts are created on our innovative cloud web hosting platform where the MySQL database storage engine is installed. A new database can be created in two separate ways – manually through the Database Manager section of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, or automatically – when you use our single-click application installer. Either way, the required engine will be selected automatically the moment the application’s activation begins, so you will not need to configure anything manually, irrespective of whether the app requires InnoDB or the more widely used MyISAM. Furthermore, we will always be able to recover any of your MySQL databases in case you erase one by mistake, as we make a couple of database backups every day, each of which is preserved for 1 week.

InnoDB in VPS

All Linux VPS that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-installed, so you’ll be able to use any open-source script-driven web application that requires this database engine without setting up anything manually. You can choose Hepsia on the VPS order page and your new VPS server will be ready within 1 hour, so you can sign in and begin setting up your web sites straight away. When you create a brand new MySQL database and start the app installation process, our system will choose the engine for that database automatically. In this way, you can activate various applications simultaneously without modifying 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-shop that makes use of the InnoDB engine, for example.

InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting

InnoDB comes by default with all dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is included in the default software bundle that we install on all Hepsia-equipped dedicated servers, so once your machine is ready, you will be able to sign in and to install a various open-source script-powered software app that requires this particular storage engine. If you set up a new MySQL database via the Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine until you start installing an app. As soon as the app installation wizard begins importing information into the database, the engine will be set automatically on the basis of the prerequisites of the respective app, so you can run both InnoDB and MyISAM without selecting either one of them explicitly at any point. Therefore, you can use a broad variety of applications for your websites.
