InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got plenty of upsides that have made it the preferred engine for lots of PHP-based web apps, such as Magento and Joomla, which have switched to InnoDB permanently. For example, adding enormous amounts of data will be much faster with InnoDB, since it locks only a single row to perform a certain task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is treated. In simpler words, adding new or updating existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be annulled and the procedure will be rolled back in case some problem shows up in the meantime, hence the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to activate any PHP script-driven app that needs InnoDB if you have a Linux cloud web hosting with our company, as the MySQL database storage engine is available on our innovative cloud website hosting platform by default. Throughout 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 install applications that require the MyISAM engine without any problems as well and, once again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you won’t have to configure anything manually at any time. On top of that, we will also generate daily backups of all the MySQL databases that you have in your shared hosting account, so in case you erase or overwrite something, we can swiftly restore it the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting include InnoDB and you can use all the features of this MySQL database storage engine with any script-powered application that needs it. InnoDB is one of the engines that we have on our cloud platform, so the one that will be used depends on the prerequisites of the specific app. You won’t have to do anything manually to activate InnoDB, since 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 create regular backups of all your MySQL databases, so if something goes wrong following an update or if you erase some data by accident, we will be able to restore your database the way it was on any of the past 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting

If you get a virtual private server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB storage engine will be an integral part of the standard software package that will be installed on your VPS server before we give it to you. You will not have to activate anything manually and you will be able to enable and manage any open-source script-based software app that requires InnoDB once your VPS is up and running, which takes no more than 1 hour after the order submission itself. A number of engines are offered, so every time you create a database via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a particular engine will be selected once the app activation process starts and our system will automatically recognize which engine is required by the application in question. In case you need to use MyISAM, for instance, you won’t have to do anything different from installing the app of your preference, whether manually or using our application installer.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting

InnoDB is included by default with all Linux dedicated servers hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It’s part of the software bundle that we install on all Hepsia-managed dedicated servers, so as soon as your machine is set up, you will be able to sign in and to install any PHP script-based software application that requires this particular MySQL database engine. When you create a new database via the Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine till you begin installing an app. Once the app setup wizard begins entering information into the newly created database, the engine will be picked automatically based on the respective app’s requirements, so you can use both InnoDB and MyISAM without selecting either of them specifically at any time. Thus, you can make use of an immense range of applications for your websites.
