InnoDB is a very popular database engine for the MySQL database management system. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has many upsides that make it the preferred engine for many open-source script-powered software apps, such as Magento and Joomla, which have moved to InnoDB for good. For example, adding large data volumes will be much faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only one row to execute a given task, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the info is tackled. In simpler words, adding new or modifying existent data will either be fully completed, or will be aborted and the operation will be rolled back if some problem shows up in the meantime, hence the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Shared Web Hosting

While InnoDB is either a paid upgrade or it is not available at all with many other web hosting providers, it is an essential part of the standard set of services offered with our shared web hosting packages. In case you wish to use an open-source script-driven application that needs InnoDB specifically, in order to be installed and to work correctly, you won’t encounter any impediments as the MySQL storage engine is available on our in-house developed cloud hosting platform. No matter if you set up a brand new MySQL database and install an app manually or use our one-click application installer tool, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our system as the default engine if the specific application needs it instead of MyISAM. In addition to the excellent crash recovery offered by InnoDB, we also make regular backups of all databases, so that we can swiftly recover any database in your shared hosting account.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting by default, so as soon as you obtain a new account, you can move on and install any script-powered app that needs this MySQL database storage engine. A couple of engines are installed on our cloud hosting platform, so when you create a brand new MySQL database and begin installing an app manually, or opt to take advantage of the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated app installer tool, the engine for the database will be chosen based on the requirements of the particular app. This will allow you to install and manage InnoDB-specific apps without having to cope with any obstacle and without having to change any settings in your account. To be on the safe side, we will always keep a 7-day-old backup of all your databases, so if you erase or edit any content unintentionally, we can swiftly retrieve it.

InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting

You will not have to configure anything manually and you will be able to enable and manage any open-source script-powered app that requires InnoDB when your VPS is ready, which takes no more than 1 hour after the order process itself. A number of engines are offered, so every time you set up a database via the Hepsia Control Panel, a specific engine will be picked when the app installation process begins and our system will detect which engine is required by the app in question. In case you need MyISAM, for example, you won’t have to do anything different than installing the desired application, whether manually or using our application installer tool.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is among the options which you can pick on the order form when you purchase a dedicated server from us. As this is the most powerful type of web hosting, it is pretty likely that you will manage popular Internet sites that will draw plenty of individuals, and since InnoDB is among the very best options for such websites, we’ll install it along with all the other software applications that are offered with a Hepsia-managed server. If you create a new MySQL database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any activated MySQL database storage engine until you begin installing an open-source PHP script, whether manually through your browser or using the automatic script installation tool that is included in the hosting Control Panel. The required engine will be recognized and will be set for that database, so you can activate scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without the need to cope with any obstacle.
