InnoDB is a popular database storage engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has a number of strong sides which have made it the preferred engine for numerous script-based software applications, such as Magento and Joomla, which have shifted over to InnoDB permanently. For instance, adding large data volumes will be faster with InnoDB, because it locks only a single row to carry out a specific task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the data is tackled. To put it simply, adding new or modifying existent data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be aborted and the procedure will be rolled back if a certain issue appears during the process, therefore the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Shared Website Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our Linux shared website hosting plans by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you’ll be able to install and manage any PHP script-powered application which requires the InnoDB storage engine without the need to deal with any complication as soon as you open your shared account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a particular MySQL database during the app installation process, no matter if you make use of our 1-click installer or create the database and activate the application manually, as long as the app requires it instead of the more famous MyISAM engine. We’ll maintain regular MySQL database backups, so you can be certain that you won’t ever lose any content in case you erase a database by mistake or you overwrite some crucial info – you will simply need to notify us and we’ll restore your database back to normal.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you set up a brand-new MySQL database through the Control Panel included with each of our semi-dedicated server plans and you begin installing an open-source script-based web app either manually or using our 1-click application installer, the MySQL database storage engine will be set automatically on the basis of the prerequisites of the specific application. As InnoDB is present on the cloud website hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated server account will be set up, it will be set as the default engine for any app that requires it without the need for any manual intervention on your end at any point. To avoid any risk of losing info if you update an application or if you erase a database accidentally, we will carry out a backup of all your databases each and every day, so if something happens, we can retrieve your data.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

All Linux VPS hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB already activated, so you will be able to use any PHP-driven web app that requires the MySQL database engine without the need to configure anything manually. You can pick Hepsia on the VPS order form and your brand new server will be ready within one hour, so you can log in and begin creating your websites right away. When you set up a brand new database and start the app activation process, our system will select the engine for this database automatically. Thus, you can activate different applications simultaneously without having to configure anything on the server. You can create a WordPress-driven weblog that uses MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento-driven e-commerce website that uses the InnoDB engine, for instance.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

All Linux dedicated web hosting plans ordered with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel include a software bundle that’s pre-activated and besides everything else, you will get the InnoDB storage engine, so you will not need to add it manually in case you need to use scripts that require it. All it takes to install such a script is to create a new MySQL database and to initiate the setup – once the script configuration wizard accesses the database in question and begins entering content into it, InnoDB will be set as the default engine for this database as long as it is the one required by the particular script. You’ll also be able to use scripts that need MyISAM – the other very popular MySQL engine, so you won’t have to configure any settings on the dedicated server. This will permit you to activate a variety of scripts on a single physical server and to use it to its full capabilities.
