InnoDB is a very popular database engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has numerous strengths that make it the preferred engine for numerous script-driven web applications, such as Joomla and Magento, which have switched over to InnoDB permanently. For instance, importing immense data volumes will be much faster with InnoDB, as it locks only one database row to execute a task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable applications. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the data is handled. Simply put, adding new or updating existent data will either be entirely completed, or will be annulled and the operation will be rolled back in case a certain problem occurs in the meantime, so the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.

InnoDB in Cloud Hosting

Any open-source script-based application that needs InnoDB will run impeccably on our innovative cloud web hosting platform and the database storage engine is offered with all our cloud hosting plans. Every time you create a MySQL database manually or our app installer tool creates one automatically and an app installation process is started, the engine that the database in question will make use of will be selected on the basis of the app’s requirements without having to change any setting in your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be picked automatically for any application that requires this particular engine and you will be able to get the most out of its full potential. We’ll keep regular content backups, so in case you accidentally delete a database that you need or you overwrite some part of it, we’ll be able to restore the database the way it was just a couple of hours ago.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you create a brand new MySQL database from the hosting Control Panel coming with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you start installing an open-source script-based app either manually or using our single-click app installer, the MySQL database storage engine will be picked automatically based on the prerequisites of the particular app. As InnoDB is available on the cloud hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated account will be set up, it will be set as the default engine for any application that needs it without the need for any manual action on your end at any point. To prevent any risk of losing data if you update an application or if you remove a database by mistake, we’ll generate a backup of all your databases each and every day, so if anything happens, we can retrieve your content.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

If our custom Hepsia Control Panel is selected during the registration process for your new Linux VPS hosting packages , InnoDB will be activated on the Virtual Private Server together with other essential software, so you won’t need to do anything if you choose to manage script-driven software applications that require this MySQL database engine. The default MySQL engine, MyISAM, will be activated too. You can create a brand new MySQL database and begin the app installation process manually or using our single-click installation tool. The system will recognize the engine that the particular app needs and will set it for the specific database, so the installation will continue impeccably and the application can insert its content into that database. In this way, you can install applications with different requirements in regard to the MySQL engine without the need to make any changes on your VPS.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

InnoDB is included by default with all dedicated web hosting ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It is an essential part of the standard software package that will be installed on all Hepsia-equipped servers, so once your physical machine is ready, you will be able to log in and to activate any script-based app that requires this particular MySQL database engine. If you create a new MySQL database through the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine until you begin installing an app. As soon as the app configuration wizard begins inserting data into the database, the engine will be picked automatically based on the prerequisites of the specific app, so you can use both MyISAM and InnoDB without selecting either of them specifically at any moment. Therefore, you can use an immense range of apps for your Internet sites.
