InnoDB is a popular database engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got numerous upsides which have made it the preferred engine for a lot of script-driven web apps, among them Magento and Joomla, which have shifted over to InnoDB permanently. For example, adding large data volumes will be much faster with InnoDB, since it locks only one database row to carry out an operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the data is handled. Simply put, appending new or updating existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be aborted and the operation will be rolled back if a certain issue appears in the meantime, which is why the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.

InnoDB in Web Hosting

Every open-source script-driven app that requires InnoDB will run flawlessly on our advanced cloud platform and the storage engine is available with all our web hosting packages. Each time you create a MySQL database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation is initiated, the engine that the database will make use of will be selected in accordance with the app’s specifications without having to change any setting in your shared hosting account. InnoDB will be picked automatically for any app that requires this specific engine and you’ll be able to take advantage of its full capacity. We’ll maintain regular content backups, so in case you unintentionally erase a database that’s important to you or you overwrite a specific part of it, we will be able to restore your content the way it was just a few hours earlier.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages include InnoDB and you’ll be able to make use of all the features offered by this database storage engine with any script-driven web application that needs it. InnoDB is among the engines that we have on our cloud web hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the given app’s prerequisites. You won’t need to do anything manually to activate InnoDB, as it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an application – whether manually or using our single-click app installer tool. To be on the safe side, we’ll store daily backups of all your databases, so if something goes wrong following some update or if you delete some data by accident, we will be able to get the database back to the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

If you purchase a virtual private server from us, you will be able to take advantage of our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel to manage your web content. A Hepsia-managed Virtual Private Server will allow you to activate any open-source script-powered software application which requires InnoDB, as the MySQL database engine is included in the default software package that will be pre-installed on the server during its setup. When you create a brand-new MySQL database using the Control Panel, you’ll simply need to begin installing an app – manually or using our app installer tool. InnoDB will be set as the default engine on the condition that the application in question requires it, so you will not need to do anything else in your account. Correspondingly, if a certain application requires MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this particular MySQL database.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

InnoDB is included by default with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is part of the standard software bundle that will be installed on all Hepsia-managed servers, so as soon as your physical machine is ready, you will be able to sign in and to activate any type of open-source script-driven web application that requires this particular MySQL database storage engine. If you set up a new MySQL database through the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine till you begin installing an app. As soon as the app activation wizard begins entering information into the database, the engine will be selected automatically in accordance with the given app’s requirements, so you can run both MyISAM and InnoDB without selecting either of them explicitly at any moment. Thus, you can use a large range of apps for your Internet sites.
